Rajon Rondo unfazed by Boston Celtics drafting Marcus Smart
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.
