BOSTON (CBS) – Fresh off another turn in the Rajon Rondo news cycle, “Celtics @ 7” host Adam Kaufman dove into the latest discussion on Saturday morning: Will the All-Star point guard test free agency when he’s eligible in 2015? A report late in the week indicated Rondo will, and he confirmed his intrigue with the process when prompted after practice on Friday. Rondo’s comments seemed to indicate the C’s have time to surround him with the pieces needed to contend, and he’s in no hurry to evaluate where his mental state will be a year-and-change from now.
Kaufman welcomed CBSBoston.com Celtics reporter Brian Robb into the show for the second segment, and the two discussed Rondo’s progress since returning from his ACL tear, the growth of rising stars Jared Sullinger and Kelly Olynyk, the light and less challenging month that lies ahead after a brutal January, and what little wrinkle could affect Ray Allen’s consideration for having his number retired at the Garden.
The show wrapped up with another Lotto Look, as this time Kaufman spent time dissecting top Kansas center Joel Embiid. Multiple reports consider him the top pick heading into the summer draft. But is he too big a project?
