    Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Double-doubles in starting assignment

    Rajon Rondo provided 13 points (6-13 FG, 1-2 3Pt), 11 assists, four rebounds and one steal across 32 minutes in the Los Angeles Lakers' 128-119 loss to the Trail Blazers on Thursday.Rondo opened the season on the first unit as expected, as the Lakers continue to manage Lonzo Ball's minutes carefully in his ongoing recovery from offseason knee surgery. The veteran shot just under 50.0 percent while also working well in concert with his new teammates, including fellow offseason acquisition LeBron James. Rondo's extensive ball distribution skills should play perfectly with the rest of a talented first unit, making Los Angeles one of the most intriguing teams to watch as the new season dawns. He'll look to build on a strong season-opening effort versus the Rockets on Saturday.

    Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Dishes out dimes in loss

    Rajon Rondo (rest) supplied three points (1-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt), 10 assists, six rebounds and one steal across 27 minutes during the Los Angeles Lakers' 103-87 preseason loss to the Clippers on Saturday.The uneven stat line would be unusual for many players, but not so for Rondo, who looked to pass first early and often Saturday and was only minimally involved as a shooter. The veteran point guard continues to log solid minutes in the preseason with Lonzo Ball (knee) still sidelined, but he's expected to slide into a reserve role as soon as the latter is back to full health.

    Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Will be rested Thursday

    Rajon Rondo will sit out Thursday's preseason matchup with the Kings for rest, Dave McMenamin of ESPN reports.The Los Angeles Lakers are attempting to keep Rondo as fresh as possible for the regular season, so he'll get the night off Thursday for rest. Joining Rondo on the sidelines will be fellow guard Lonzo Ball (knee), so Los Angeles will be short on bodies in the backcourt. As a result, Brandon Ingram is expected to start at point guard, while Lance Stephenson is set to operate as his backup. Alex Caruso should get minutes at the position as well.

    Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Posts 11 assists, seven boards

    Rajon Rondo accrued two points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 11 assists and seven rebounds in 23 minutes during Sunday's 124-107 preseason loss to the Nuggets.Rondo wasn't looking to get himself involved offensively, but he was excellent in finding his teammates and committed only two turnovers. His actual role remains a little unclear considering Lonzo Ball's presence -- Ball didn't play while recovering from knee surgery -- but Rondo has never had trouble racking up big assist numbers in limited action.

    Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Set to start at point guard

    Rajon Rondo is expected to begin the season as the Los Angeles Lakers' starting point guard over Lonzo Ball, Dave McMenamin of ESPN reports.McMenamin broke the news during an interview on ESPN radio Tuesday, stating that coach Luke Walton has apparently already made up his mind. "Walton told me today that Rajon Rondo will be the Lakers' starting point guard to start the year," McMenamin said. While Ball was just cleared for full contact earlier in the week after offseason knee surgery, the prevailing belief was that the 2017 No. 2 overall pick would be the starter over the 32-year-old Rondo, who played well in New Orleans last season but now joins his sixth team in five seasons. Of course, nothing is set in stone at this point, and it's certainly possible Ball could reclaim the job during the regular season once he proves he's back up to speed. Regardless, the situation is something to keep a close eye on -- both players averaged at least seven assists per game last season.

    Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Reaches agreement with Lakers

    Rajon Rondo agreed Monday to a one-year, $9 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.Rondo joins an ever growing cast of one-year signings for the Lakers, who continue to load up on playmakers to help out new superstar addition LeBron James. However, the one-year deals also leave roster flexibility for next season, when the Lakers are expected to be in contention for a couple more max players. Rondo, specifically, is coming off a 2017-18 campaign where he averaged 8.3 points, 8.2 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 1.1 steals across 26.2 minutes. He doesn't bring the shooting that you'd like to have alongside James, but his ability to get others involved is near the top of the league. Despite the presence of prized second-year point guard Lonzo Ball, Ramona Shelburne of ESPN reports that the Lakers have told Rondo that the best man will win the job. That will certainly be a position battle to watch throughout training camp and the preseason.

    Pelicans' Rajon Rondo: Limited by groin issues in Game 5 loss

    Rajon Rondo totaled seven points (3-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt), seven assists, two rebounds and three steals across 21 minutes in New Orleans' 113-104 loss to the Warriors in Game 5 of their Western Conference semifinal-round playoff series.Rondo was limited by a sore groin in the second half, leading to his lowest minutes total of the postseason. The veteran guard may have finished up the series in lackluster fashion due to the limited playing time, but he undoubtedly made his mark during the playoffs. Rondo finished the postseason with averages of 10.3 points, 12.2 assists, 7.6 rebounds and 1.4 steals across 33.6 minutes over nine games, posting two double-doubles while dishing out double-digit dimes on six occasions overall. He'll head into free agency having generated his best shooting percentage (46.8) since the 2012-13 campaign, with a return to New Orleans also potentially in the cards.
