“It’s not something that I obsess over,” Rodriguez said during an event of Bridgestone, for which he serves as an ambassador. “For now I want to rest and then work on some things that I haven’t been able to do. My desire is to continue in the NBA, but there will be time to talk about the contract”
Sergio Rodriguez wants to remain a 76er. "I would love to be here," said the backup point guard, who signed a one-year deal on July 13. "It's a good situation for me being with players that were supposed to play this year but had injuries."
