Rondo was bought out by the 76 heat warriors, and the Lakers are interested in reporting on August 23:
According to NBA reporter Brett Siegel, league sources said that not many teams are expected to be interested in trading veteran guard Rondo from the Memphis Grizzlies and accepting his annual salary of $7.5 million. However, if Rondo and the Grizzlies reach a buyout, including the Philadelphia 76ers, the Miami Heat, the Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Lakers are interested in signing him with a base salary contract.
During the off-season, the Grizzlies reached a deal with the Los Angeles Clippers to send brysso to the Clippers in exchange for Rondo, Beverly and otulu. However, Rondo is not happy to play for the Grizzlies. According to previous media reports, Rondo is likely to follow igodara’s original refusal to report and force the grizzly bear management to trade.
However, Rondo’s situation is more passive. Last season, Rondo played in general under tyron Lu’s training. Especially in the playoffs, he averaged 5.4 points, 2.4 rebounds and 4.4 assists. In some key games, Rondo was abandoned by tyron Lu. Moreover, Rondo also angrily sprayed the Clippers’ star Leonard on the field, showing the characteristics of pricking head again. Finally, he was sold by the Clippers during the off-season. Considering Rondo’s annual salary of $7.5 million, not many teams are willing to take over him.
If it is impossible to leave Grizzlies by trade, it is very appropriate for Rondo to reach a buyout. Once Rondo receives a base salary contract, his cost performance will be very high. The 76ers, heat, warriors and Lakers are all interested in signing him.
Obviously, the most suitable thing for Rondo is to return to the Lakers. In the 2019-20 season, Rondo found a suitable position in the Los Angeles Lakers and became the team’s dual engine with LeBron James. In the playoffs of that season, Rondo could contribute 8.9 points, 4.3 rebounds and 6.6 assists to the Lakers, which was an important hero of the team. So far, the Lakers’ lineup is not full. It is understood that they plan to leave the 15th quota to the buyout market.
