It doesn’t seem like he’s committed to playing yet, but that didn’t stop the University of Kentucky from floating the possibility of Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo playing the 2012 UK Alumni Charity Game on Sept. 15 at Rupp Arena. The Wildcats release also mentioned Wizards PG John Wall, No. 1 overall NBA draft pick Anthony Davis and mercurial Kings big DeMarcus Cousins.
You’ll remember Rondo played in a series of Big Blue All-Star games for John Calipari last summer, but that was during the lockout. This is two weeks before the start of C’s training camp. Different story. Still, if he can travel to the Philippines to host a Red Bull Skills Clinic in Manila on Monday, why not hop down to Lexington for charity?
