WALTHAM — In response to an report that stated Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo intends to test the free agent market in the summer of 2015 when his contract is up, Rondo said Friday that he is intrigued by the possibility, adding, “I may want to go through it.”

While Rondo emphasized that he has made no decision about his future and that he is just focused on this season, he did compare the process of free agency to college recruiting when asked what about it was intriguing to him.

“It’s kind of like college recruiting,” Rondo said. “I’m pretty sure a lot more goes into it in the NBA. A lot more money is spent.

“I’ve heard stories, guys getting called right at midnight. It’s something that I haven’t experienced. I may want to go through it. I haven’t thought about it at all.”

Rondo’s contract, a five-year extension worth $55 million that he signed in the fall of 2009, is up after next season. He is set to become a free agent in July 2015 if the Celtics don’t sign him to a contract extension before that.

But Rondo remained adamant that he isn’t looking that far ahead.

“I haven’t thought about it,” he said. “I’ve just thought about getting my leg as strong as possible, continue to shake off the rust this year and come back even better next.”
