He won't start the season in the lineup, but Rajon Rondo is still drawing plenty of attention at Celtics training camp at Salve Regina in Newport, R.I.

Rondo, recovering from the torn ACL he sustained back in January, was the last guy off the floor at the morning session of Day 2 of practice, although he can't participate in drills that may lead to contact.

To fill the void at Rondo's point guard position, new coach Brad stevens said he preparing "all of these [guards] to play major minutes at the point."

That includes Avery Bradley, the defensive whiz who saw plenty of time there after Rondo was hurt last season and wants to continue to refine his ball-handling.

"My confidence level is high right now," Bradley said. "I'm going to try to improve every practice on my ball-handling, shooting, every aspect of my game."
