Brad Stevens has plenty on his mind these days.

Worrying about Rajon Rondo's debut as a basketball analyst isn't one of them.

The four-time All-Star will join Comcast SportsNet play-by-play announcer Mike Gorman for at least the first quarter of tonight's game at Chicago.

When asked about Rondo's broadcast work tonight, Stevens said, "the last thing I'm worried about is Rondo on TV."

Stevens added, "One thing about Rondo I think we all know, he's a pretty savvy guy."

That's why Stevens isn't overly concerned about Rondo speaking out on any in-house secrets of strategies.

"He'll figure out what to say and what not to say," Stevens said. "And I think he'll provide good insight. If I was a fan, I'd be interested in what he has to say and then tune in. Since he's not playing, it's a neat thing he'll be out there for a quarter-plus."

Rondo (rest), still on the mend from a torn ACL injury suffered in January of 2013, is not playing in back-to-back games this season.
