One day after Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge revealed that he had offered point guard Rajon Rondo a contract extension, Rondo said he wouldn’t mind staying with the Celtics for the rest of his career.

“I like to stick to the script,” Rondo said before the Celtics played the Oklahoma City Thunder Friday night at TD Garden. “I don’t like change much. I wouldn’t mind staying here the rest of my career.

“Things don’t always seem to go that way, but like I said before, it’s just a business. I wouldn’t mind extending another 10 years in Boston.”

Rondo, a four-time All-Star, has one more year left on the five-year extension worth $55 million that he signed in October 2009.

The Celtics offered Rondo an extension roughly a month ago, Ainge said. The two sides weren’t able to get a deal done, but that was to be expected, as the NBA’s collective bargaining agreement limits the length and value of extensions at the moment.

It’s more likely that a deal is reached this summer or next, when Rondo stands to make considerably more.

Ainge mentioned that he expects Rondo to get paid “star money.” On that subject, Rondo said, “I’m making star money now, really. It’s a pretty good living. I’ll let my agent handle those terms.”
