Rajon Rondo is entering his 14th NBA season at 33 years old & it has not been determined what Rajon Rondo’s role will be with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2019-20. Rondo served as the backup & mentor to Lonzo Ball last year, but after Lonzo got traded to the New Orleans Pelicans, the Lakers re-signed Rondo to a 1-yr deal & he could potentially be the Lakers’ starting point guard. However, the latest Lakers rumors suggest that LeBron James could be the Lakers’ starting point guard by running the point forward position like he has the majority of his career. If that’s the case, Rondo could take a back seat & provide some playmaking off the Lakers’ bench lineup.
Chat Sports host of the Lakers Report, Hannah Kulik, has a 2019-20 NBA season preview for Rajon Rondo, including his role prediction & potential impact on this Lakers' roster. In other Lakers news, Los Angeles signed Avery Bradley & Quinn Cook during 2019 NBA free agency & they could steal some playing time from Rondo. Rondo has been known for his defensive playmaking throughout his NBA career, but he has slowed down defensively over the past couple of seasons.
The Lakers could be prioritizing defensive ability this upcoming season & Avery Bradley has been among the best defensive point guards in the NBA during his career. Could Bradley be a better option as starting PG? Quinn Cook is a shooting specialist & that could also be appealing to the Lakers starting lineup which lacks true shooters. It will be interesting to see what Rondo’s role will be in 2019-20 & what kind of impact he will have on the Lakers roster in 2019-20.
