Los Angeles Lakers interested in Rajon Rondo?

The Los Angeles Lakers have been so quiet so far in the NBA free agency as well as in acquiring big names.

While some of the teams have successfully pursued their prospects, the Lakers are rumored to be interested in the service of point guard Rajon Rondo. According SB Nation, the Lakers have contacted Rondo at the start of free agency in July 1.

Though the Lakers may not necessary need the presence of Rondo, it appears that they are looking for a veteran that can possibly back up Lonzo Ball. If the Lakers have a shot at Rondo with the price that they want, then they can get him at the minimum of one year.

The 31-year old point-guard has been journeying in the last three years, playing in Dallas, Sacramento and Chicago. Rondo played nine years in Boston and he was even considered to become the face of the Celtics. He played for 69 games with the Bulls last season and he averaged 10.7 points, 4.9 rebounds and 8.5 points per game.

The Lakers are surely thinking deeper if Rondo is the right player to add into the upcoming roster. As the team rebuilding, the Lakers are in need of players who can lift them up to a very crowded Western Conference where teams are piling up with superstars.
