The Los Angeles Lakers brought back guard Rajon Rondo on Monday after he cleared waivers.

Rondo, who was bought out by the Memphis Grizzlies, returns to the team he won the 2019-20 NBA title with.

The veteran guard revealed that Lakers superstars LeBron James and Anthony Davis played major roles in his decision to return to the team.

Rondo was a key cog in the Lakers title run during the 2019-20 season, and he may be exactly what the team needs to make another title run in the 2021-22 campaign.

The Lakers made several moves to bring in veteran players this offseason, and Rondo should fit right in as a potential backup point guard to Russell Westbrook.

Los Angeles was eliminated in the first round of the playoffs last season without Rondo on the roster.

James and Davis clearly value Rondo’s presence, and it should be a solid reunion for the trio next season.
