Report: Lakers front-runners to sign Rondo after Grizzlies buyout
Rondo split 45 games last season between the Atlanta Hawks and Los Angeles Clippers, averaging a combined 5.4 points, 4.4 assists, and 2.4 rebounds. The Clippers traded him to the Grizzlies earlier this month along with Patrick Beverley and Daniel Oturu in exchange for Eric Bledsoe.
This would mark Rondo's second stint with the Lakers. He appeared in 92 games with L.A. across two seasons from 2018-20 and played a key role in their 2020 championship.
