Rajon Rondo is expected to decline his $2.7 million player option for next season, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
After an underwhelming regular season, Rondo flipped the switch in the playoffs and was instrumental on their road to a championship. He averaged 8.9 points, 6.6 assists, 4.3 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 1.3 triples in 24.7 minutes per game, and he saved the best for last with a 19/4/4 line in Game 6 vs. the Heat. The Lakers will obviously be interested in bringing the 34-year-old veteran back but Shams notes that other contenders will come calling as well. Oct 16 10:50 am (EST)
