The move had been expected for quite some time after the point guard declined his player option with the Lakers. There were also whispers that rumors of Rondo going to Hawks were “gaining a lot of steam.”
The point guard will be a fantastic addition to a young Hawks team with a budding young superstar in Trae Young.
Rondo averaged 7.1 points, 3.0 rebounds and 5.0 assists per game for the Lakers.
