  • Rajon Rondo says he’s OK with Celtics drafting Marcus Smart

    Published: Tue, Jul 8, 2014

    Rajon Rondo is the Boston Celtics' starting point guard. For now. The eight-year veteran has been rumored to be on the trading block for quite some time, but the talks of Rondo's departure intensified when Marcus Smart was drafted No. 6 overall by the Celtics. This week, however, Rondo said that he's OK with the Celtics' decision to draft the former Oklahoma State guard. “I don’t think nothing of it,” Rondo said Monday at his basketball camp in Louisville, Ky. “I am who I am. "For me to get bent out of shape, or to feel threatened by the Celtics drafting a point guard, it means nothing.” Smart has started shakily for the Celtics in two summer league games. While Smart is averaging 10.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 3.0 steals per game, he's shooting just 22 percent from the floor (5-of-23).
