Rajon Rondo wants to end career in Boston: 'I like to stick to the script'

Four-time All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo wants to end his career with the Boston Celtics according to a report by Boston.com on Jan. 24.

The news came a day after it was reported that Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said that he offered Rondo a contract extension. The Celtics new captain said he wouldn't mind staying in one place the rest of his career which is rare in the NBA these days.

Before the Celtics game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday, Rajon Rondo told reporters, "I like to stick to the script."

Rondo admitted that he doesn't like change but also realize that the game of basketball is a business. Just because both sides want Rondo to remain in Boston, things may not work out financially.

"Things don't always seem to go that way, but like I said before, it's just a business. I wouldn't mind extending another 10 years in Boston."

If the two sides eventually agree on a deal, it will mean that the team is willing to rebuild with Rondo as a piece instead of using the All-Star point guard as a movable piece in quickening the team's rebuilding process.

Currently, Rondo has one more year left on a five-year extension worth $55 million that he signed in October 2009 . Ainge said that when and if a deal is reached by this summer or next, Rondo is expected to make "star money". That means the Celtics will have to consider Rondo one of the top point guards in the NBA. It sounds so far that they do.
