Three Questions about Rajon Rondo

There is a reason Rondo was so available in free agency. Can the former All-Star elevate the Kings and reinvigorate his career next year? With the signings of Marco Belinelli and Kosta Koufos, Vlade Divac has beefed up the Sacramento Kings' depth chart significantly using his newly minted capspace. But the biggest haul of the offseason is undoubtedly Rajon Rondo, the mercurial guard who was so highly regarded before he saw the team he rose to fame with deconstructed. Rondo's run with the Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, and Kevin Garnett Celtics seems so long ago, especially with the time...

About the pick the Dallas Mavericks owe the Celtics

How valuable will it be? That's debatable. It has only been a few months since the trade, but early results indicate that the Celtics "won" the trade with the Mavericks.  In theory, they got the most talented player, but Rajon Rondo was a complete bust in Dallas and sent packing even before the playoffs completed. The Celtics, meanwhile, got Jae Crowder (re-signed to an extension), Brandan Wright (traded for a heavily protected pick - likely to turn into 2 second rounders), cap filler, a protected 1st from Dallas, and a conditional 2nd rounder from Dallas (plus a TPE that will likely be...

NBA Free Agency: Rajon Rondo signs one-year, $10 million contract with Kings, according to report

The point guard so often rumored to be connected with the Lakers during the regular season has signed in Sacramento Free agent point guard Rajon Rondo has signed a one-year contract worth $10 million with the Sacramento Kings, according to Yahoo Sports' Marc J. Spears. The one-time Boston Celtics champion was traded to the Dallas Mavericks at midseason, but was not expected to re-sign with them following a turbulent season punctuated by a one-game suspension and head coach Rick Carlisle telling reporters that he did not expect Rondo back with the team before the Mavericks were even...

Report: Kings sign Rajon Rondo

It'll be a one year deal from somewhere between $9.5 – $10 million After much rampant speculation, the Sacramento Kings and Rajon Rondo are finally committed to eachother for at least the 2015-2016 year. Rajon Rondo has agreed to a one-year, $10 million contract with the Sacramento Kings, league sources told Yahoo Sports. From Marc Spears Rondo is trying to recover from his disastrous last stint with the Mavericks, where he bogged down the offense all year before flaming out spectacularly in the Playoffs by basically quitting on the team. Its possible that no other team expressed...

Rajon Rondo is in Sacramento Today to Meet with the Kings Front Office

According to just about everyone, Rajon Rondo is in Sacramento today to meet with the Kings front office, and if all goes according to Vlade Divac’s plan, Rondo could be a King by the end of today. Of course, Wesley Matthews left Sacramento with an absurd 4-year, $65 million contract offer yesterday that resulted in Matthews taking less money to sign with the Dallas Mavericks. I don’t think Rondo is using the Kings for leverage like Matthews may have been, but the point is a meeting doesn’t necessarily result in a signing. I thought Carmichael Dave brought up an excellent point on...

NBA Free Agency Rumor: Lakers reach out to Rajon Rondo, according to report

Who you gonna' call? Rajon Rondo! The Los Angeles Lakers have yet to make a free agent signing, so they decided it was time to call one of their most-often speculated targets, Rajon Rondo, reports Ramona Shelburne of ESPN. The Lakers were not expected to make a run at signing Rondo after they drafted D'Angelo Russell, but things have gone sour enough in free agency for the team to at least put in a courtesy call it seems. The Sacramento Kings are desperately trying to sign talent after they traded a protected first-round pick and Nick Stauskas, along with salary, to the Philadelphia 76ers....

The Latest on Rajon Rondo, Corey Brewer

Conversations between the Sacramento Kings and Dallas Mavericks free agent point guard Rajon Rondo are getting interesting, to say the least. It’s unclear whether that is the good kind of interesting, or the bad kind of interesting, but something is happening behind the scenes. Ailene Voisin started the morning off by saying that, surprisingly; DeMarcus Cousins was not a fan of Rondo. Cousins had said the complete opposite in an interview with Bill Simmons last year. I’m not going to put words in anyone’s mouth, or pretend like I know the motives behind a tweet, but that came so out...

NBA Free Agency updates: Kings targeting Rajon Rondo, Anthony Davis and Kawhi Leonard getting maximum contracts

Two of the NBA's top young talents re-upped with their teams, while the Kings are in hot pursuit of Rajon Rondo. The Sacramento Kings and Rajon Rondo are gravitating toward one another in free agency, and Rudy Gay has been pushing to make it happen. The Kings would look to potentially play both Rondo and Darren Collison together in an attempt to solidify their backcourt. Rondo is looking for a one-year contract, hoping for a chance to redeem his value after a tumultuous finish to his season with the Dallas Mavericks. The Los Angeles Lakers were linked to Rondo in the past, but following...

It seems increasingly likely that Rajon Rondo and the Sacramento Kings may soon reach an agreement on a short-term contract. This has been rumored for a while now, but Yahoo's Marc Spears has some recent updates that make this seem inevitable. Kings VP Vlade Divac has called free agent guard Rajon Rondo and requested that he visit Sacramento, a source said. Contract not offered YET — Marc J.

Lakers Free Agency Rumors: Lakers will not 'make push' to sign Rajon Rondo

It sounds like the Lakers are saying no to Rondo. The Los Angeles Lakers will not pursue Dallas Mavericks free agent point guard Rajon Rondo in free agency this offseason, according to Dwain Price of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Price cites the Lakers drafting Ohio State point guard D'Angelo Russell second overall in the 2015 NBA draft as the reason they will not target the veteran free agent. Rondo, a four-time NBA All-Star, has had difficulty returning to form since tearing his ACL in 2013 and struggled mightily when traded to Dallas early in the 2014-15 season, averaging 9.3 points on...

Rudy Gay is the "Loudest Voice" in Rondo Recruitment

Rondo's name and the Sacramento Kings have been linked for as long as the new ownership group has been in place. Could this longstanding rumor finally become reality? It will if Rudy has his say in it. In the latest of endless rumors linking Rajon Rondo to  the Sacramento Kings, Marc Stein is reporting that Rudy Gay is actively recruiting Rondo into what would likely be a one year deal in Sacramento.
