Rajon Rondo expected to decline optionOctober 16, 2020 | 07:50 AM
Rajon Rondo is expected to decline his $2.7 million player option for next season, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: After an underwhelming regular season, Rondo flipped the switch in the playoffs and was instrumental on their road to a championship. He averaged 8.9 points, 6.6 assists, 4.3 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 1.3 triples in 24.7 minutes per game, and he saved the best for last with a 19/4/4 line in Game 6 vs. the Heat. The Lakers will obviously be interested in bringing the 34-year-old veteran back but Shams notes that other contenders will come calling as well.
