Rajon Rondo says he will not return to LakersNovember 21, 2020 | 11:49 AM
Rajon Rondo said he will not be returning to the Lakers as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
Analysis: It was pretty clear that the Lakers weren't going to be able to retain Rondo when they brought in Dennis Schroder, and while the Hawks just signed Kris Dunn, they're still reportedly the front runners to land Rondo as well. The Clippers have also expressed interest, but the Hawks will be able to offer him the most money, so it'll be up to Rondo whether he wants to compete for a championship at a discount or serve in a mentorship role with a team that will be fighting for a playoff spot. Either way, we don't anticipate him making much noise in fantasy hoops.
