Rajon Rondo does not take money seriously and is only looking for more championship rings. However, there are still possible teams for Rondo both. After revealing the old “Playoffs Rondo legend” with the Los Angeles Lakers, veteran defender Rajon Rondo has proven he is still valuable.
Especially in the Playoffs environment, Rondo’s long combat experience is even more valuable. Therefore, the 2020 NBA champion has received many invitations from other teams, one of which is a rival city with the Lakers, the LA Clippers. Up to this point, Rajon Rondo is still a player on the payroll of the Los Angeles Lakers.
However, under the terms of the contract, he can become a free player (Player Option) and find himself a new contract with a higher salary. At the age of 34, this may be the last chance for Rondo to find a high-value and long-term contract before entering the “nursing home” period.
Although the veteran defender once openly shared that he would “no longer run after money, just want a championship ring”, there are still teams that can give Rondo both.
The Lakers will not let their players go easily
According to prestigious journalist Marc Stein of The New York Times, the Los Angeles Clippers will find a way to entice and find the right word of Rajon Rondo when the transfer market opens. However, the Lakers will not let their players go easily.
From the start, the Lakers were determined to renew their contract with Rondo, who made a big contribution to the sublimation of the Playoffs and was crowned champions. Rajon Rondo will have 2.7 million dollars if he decides to play another season for the Los Angeles Lakers, but he can completely become a free player if he wants.
Up to this point, Rajon Rondo, although past his peak for many years, is still one of the most sought-after defenders. In addition to the seasoned playing experience and extremely stable performance, Rondo also has a very high basketball IQ and can become the spiritual leader for any team.
