Rajon Rondo told reporters after Friday's practice that he hasn't yet made a decision regarding if he will explore unrestricted free agency at the end of next season. He did, however, appear intrigued and somewhat interested in the experience itself.
"I've heard stories, guys getting called right at midnight," Rondo said. "It's something that I haven't experienced. I may want to go through it. I haven't thought about it at all."
This, of course, comes only a day after ESPN's Chris Broussard reported that Rondo was keeping his options open for next summer.
Broussard wrote: "Rondo is looking forward to becoming an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career in the summer of 2015. It's not that he's dead set on leaving Boston, but he wants to keep his options open in terms of both winning and money.
It's starting to look more and more like Rondo will enter free agency next summer, and the Celtics may not present the best option for him at that point. If the C's don't start winning before that time it would be plausible to think that the all-star guard could leave for another destination that presented a better chance for him to win his second title. Danny Ainge has a tough choice to make in the next year or so, as he needs to decide whether or not to trade Rondo.
