How does a Rondo max contract affect the Celtics after the new TV deal

The big debate around here this season is whether to give Rondo a full five-year, maximum contract offer.  Putting aside the critics who want him gone no matter what, there is some debate over whether Rondo deserves the absolute maximum salary of 28% of the Celtics salary cap, and the absolute maximum five-year contract at [...]
