Agent: Celtics Say Rondo is ‘Their Guy’
Coaches are not allowed to have conversations with players until a new collective bargaining agreement is ratified, but the message that the Celtics still very much want (Rajon) Rondo and that communication will be better this season has been transmitted.
(Agent Bill) Duffy spoke to (Celtics president Danny) Ainge and came away more confident that his client will remain in Boston.
“I’m told that he’s their guy,” Duffy said. “There’s been repeated interest in him, as there is in other players. But they have high expectations for Rajon now and moving forward.
“I think that they obviously went to the public to explain that their position as it relates to Rajon is strong. He’s their guy. That message was just publicly reiterated.”
