Rajon Rondo

We’ll admit, Rajon Rondo’s time with the LA Clippers was both transient and didn’t go the way many were expecting. During the 2020-21 season, Rondo was pushed out the door by the Atlanta Hawks and found himself on the Clippers.

Shortly after his arrival, however, Rondo played uninspiring basketball and was placed in coach Ty Lue’s doghouse. Still, as we look back on his numbers, Rondo played solidly. The multiple-time All-Star racked up 7.6 points and 5.8 assists. While he’s unable to score at a high clip, LA has a bevy of shooters and scorers at their disposal, making Rondo’s offensive inefficiencies moot.

In addition to Rondo appearing to have something left in the tank, the Clippers are missing a true floor general. Although Reggie Jackson, LA’s current point guard, as well as John Wall, their impending free agency addition, are terrific scorers and capable passers, at this point, neither guy should be considered a pass-first point man. In Rondo, the Clippers would have a player that they can place at the tail end of their bench with championship-level experience and can step in if need be.

Next. Clippers make sure Nic Batum and Coffey remain put. dark
