Boston Celtics star Rajon Rondo has not ruled out the possibility of becoming a free agent in 2015.

Rondo has two years remaining on his current deal but has mixed feelings on whether to extend his stay at the TD Bank Garden or not.

The 27-year-old has revealed that staying at the Boston Celtics would be his number one priority - but that he wouldn't be against joining a new franchise in 2015.

Speaking to the Boston Herald, Rondo said on becoming a free agent: “It is (intriguing).

"I haven’t thought about it. I’ve just thought about getting my leg as strong as possible next summer. It’s kind of like college recruiting, but a lot more money is spent.

"I’ve heard stories of guys getting calls right at midnight (on July 1 when contracts expire). It’s something I haven’t experienced and may want to go through, but I haven’t thought about it.”

Rondo reportedly rejected the chance to commit his long-term future to the Celtics in January, as he is keen on weighing up his options before committing his future to the Eastern Conference franchise.

The point guard, who has recently returned from a lengthy injury layoff, may decide to see where the Celtics finish in the next two seasons before making a decision.

The Celtics are currently second from bottom in the Atlantic Division and are four places off a playoff spot.
