Kings PG Rajon Rondo, who is averaging almost 12 assists per game, on what's important to him in his upcoming free agency: "Coach, personnel and the biggest thing for me is the style of play." Rondo, who usually has the ball in his hands a lot, was asked specifically about the triangle offense. "The triangle is not really a good look for me, I don't think." Both New York teams will be among those in the market for a point guard this summer.
