BOSTON – If former Boston Celtic guard Rajon Rondo has his way, the decision on where to stay when he returns to Boston will get easier.

The former all-star guard’s Lincoln, Mass. home is for sale with the price – much like his stock in the eyes of other NBA teams this past season – dropping.

Those interested in the 6,513-square-foot home can have it for $1.999 million which is more than $450,000 less than its original list price in May according to the Coldwell Banker website.

Some of the many perks include:

· Five bedrooms

· Seven and a half bathrooms

· Game room

· Three-car garage

· Movie Theater


And it all sits on 1 ½ acres. The listing also indicates that the house is “surrounded by 4+ private additional acres of shared conserved land: this is a private oasis.”

Built in 2003, Rondo bought the home in the North Lincoln gated community in 2008 which is the same year the Celtics brought home Banner 17.

In eight-plus seasons with the Celtics, Rondo averaged 8.5 assists and 1.9 steals per game which are both franchise records. In addition, his 4,474 assists and 990 steals ranks 4th and 3rd all-time, respectively.

Rondo, a four-time all-star (2010-2013), struggled during his four-month stint with the Mavericks before ultimately being sent away from the team in the first round of the playoffs. Things certainly didn’t fare as well as Rondo would have liked in Dallas, but the 6-foot-1 guard did manage to land on his feet this summer.

An unrestricted free agent last month, Rondo is among the growing class of players looking to parlay strong play this upcoming season into a multi-year deal in the summer of 2016 when the salary cap will be significantly higher and teams are going to be well-positioned to spend considerably more than they have in past years.

Rondo signed a one-year deal with the Sacramento Kings that’s worth $10 million.
