Report: Clippers expected to pursue Rajon Rondo this offseason

Rajon Rondo just played a key role in helping the Los Angeles Lakers win an NBA title, and now it’s looking like the Los Angeles Clippers are interested in his contributions.

According to a Wednesday report, the Lakers’ crosstown rival will pursue the two-time champ this offseason. With that in mind, the Lakers are reportedly ‘determined’ to bring Rondo back.

It has already been reported that Rondo is expected to decline his player option for next season in an attempt to earn a richer deal. Moreover, he has said that winning trumps money at this point in his career.

Last season, Rondo averaged just 7.1 points, 5.0 assists and 3.0 rebounds per game in the regular season. Those numbers jumped up to 8.9 points, 6.6 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game in the playoffs.

Rondo served as a major force for the Lakers and became one of the team’s primary ball-handlers when LeBron James was off the court.

The Clippers endured a highly disappointing season last year and seem determined to bounce back next year. However, there is quite a bit of drama and uncertainty currently circulating the franchise.

If Rondo is truly more committed to winning than anything else, it seems obvious that he will remain with the Purple and Gold.
