Or so they say.
The star point guard views himself as a max-level player, a belief shared by team president Danny Ainge. Rondo will earn a shade under $13 million this season, the final year of his deal with the C’s.
Per the Boston Globe and MetroWest Daily News:
Rondo is asked of he sees himself as a max-contract player. He doesn't hesitate. "Yes, I do."
