Finally some detailed numbers on the Rondo contract negotiations, courtesy Jeff Goodman of WEEI/Fox:
a contract extension worth five years and $45 million, with Rondo’s
representatives asking for between $55-60 million over the same number
of years. The Celtics presented their offer to Rondo’s reps in a
meeting, Monday night. Rondo is eligible to become a restricted free
agent at the end of the 2009-10 season.
Celtics are offering $9 million per year. Rondo wants between $11 and $12 million per year.
How about 5-years, $52 million? Damn, I should have gone into mediation.
Heads up to everyone. John and I will hold a live blog tonight during the game and a live call-in show at 10pm.
