Woj: Rajon Rondo ‘likely to be signed to fill the last available squad slot with the Lakers’
Another veteran might be on his way to the Los Angeles Lakers. Rajon Rondo, who was part of the 2020 Lakers Championship team, will be deleting waivers on Monday after agreeing to a buyout with the Memphis Grizzlies to become a free agent.
According to ESPN’s NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski, the 35-year-old point guard, who split between the Atlanta Hawks and the Los Angeles Clippers last season, is likely to be signed by the Lakers to fill the last available squad seat. The rumor was too reports from Shams Charania.
Rondo has two rings with the two most highly decorated NBA franchises – the Celtics and the Lakers. The two-time NBA All-Defensive 1st Team Guard averaged 10 points, 4.6 rebounds and 8.1 assists per game last season.
Interestingly, Rondo will do with Russell Westbrook, who had a heated exchange with his brother resulting in the latter being ordered by security forces to leave the arena and the former being thrown out.
