Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo says he is confident in his standing with the franchise despite the team drafting Marcus Smart in last month's NBA Draft, according to a Boston Globe report from Baxter Holmes.
The Celtics used the sixth overall pick on the Oklahoma State point guard, a move that led to speculation about Rondo's future with the team. Rondo brushed aside any doubts, per the Boston Globe:
“I don’t think nothing of it,” he said, shrugging his shoulders. “I am who I am.”
Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge is still reportedly attempting to acquire Kevin Love from the Minnesota Timberwolves. Earlier this summer, Love took a weekend trip to Boston and was spotted speaking to Rondo, who denied trying to sell him on the city and franchise.
