Report: Clippers trading Lou Williams and draft picks to Hawks for Rajon Rondo

The Los Angeles Clippers are reportedly trading for two-time NBA champion Rajon Rondo.

Rondo, who won a title with the Los Angeles Lakers last season, signed with the Atlanta Hawks this offseason. Now, he’ll end up back in L.A. on another title contender.

Rondo is averaging just 3.9 points, 3.5 assists and 2.0 rebounds per game this season. Still, his experience and basketball IQ are undoubtedly valuable come playoff time.

Last season during the Lakers’ title run, Rondo averaged 8.9 points, 6.6 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game. He was a very valuable piece when it mattered most.

While the Clippers are headlined by the star duo of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, they have been actively looking to improve their point guard position.

Though Rondo is certainly not the All-Star player he once was, he should still be a major addition to the team from a basketball and culture standpoint.
