Rajon Rondo: 'I don't want to leave Boston Celtics'

Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo says that he is not interested in leaving the team.

Rajon Rondo has said that he would not be interested in a move away from the Boston Celtics.

There have been reports that the point guard could be interested in leaving the team following a series of summer departures.

The 27-year-old told Comcast SportsNet: "I love it here. The fans are great here. And [president of basketball operations] Danny [Ainge] has been straightforward with me. This is my team. Why would I want to leave? Why would I want out?

"I never really backed away from a challenge. This would be a challenge. I'm looking forward to working with coach [Brad] Stevens.

"It's a brand-new start for us as a team. A lot of new players and a lot of young guys willing to listen, so I'm very excited about that."

Rondo averaged a career-high 13.7 points per game last year.
