Rajon Rondo is keen to play the rest of his career with the Boston Celtics.

The 27-year old point guard has played for the Celtics his entire pro career, since signing for the franchise as part of a Phoenix Suns draft trade in 2006.

And now, with his current contract up this year, he is positive about the possibility of staying with the team for a long time to come.

Speaking ahead of the Celtics' recent game with the Oklahoma City Thunder he revealed his thought process:

"I like to stick to the script. 

"I don't like change much. I wouldn't mind staying here the rest of my career," he told the Boston Globe

With the Celtics struggling this season, posting a 15-31 record to date, there had been rumors that Rondo could be traded in order to enable the franchise to rebuild ahead of next season.

But with Boston's GM Danny Ainge having already announced that the franchise had offered the four-time All-Star a new deal in recent weeks, and now with the player talking positively of his future at TD Gardens, this seems unlikely:

"It's just a business.

"I wouldn't mind extending another 10 years in Boston," Rondo said on Friday.

Rondo has only managed five starts so far in an injury hit season but he is still a high class player who has many years ahead of him in the NBA.
