Could Rajon Rondo join Lakers?

In 2016, there was a lot of speculation linking Rajon Rondo as a possible free-agent target of the Los Angeles Lakers, but that never came to fruition as he signed with the Chicago Bulls. Free agency has begun in 2017, and the Lakers and Rondo have mutual interest, reports the Los Angeles Times.

According to Tania Ganguli, a source said Rondo's representative contacted the Lakers on Friday. How much interest the Lakers have with Rondo is unknown as they scour the market for a backup point guard. Kobe Bryant is a fan of Rondo's, and he might lobby the Lakers to offer the 11-year NBA veteran a contract.

Another option for the Lakers is to re-sign Tyler Ennis, who was acquired last season as part of a trade with the Houston Rockets. In 22 appearances with the Los Angeles, Ennis averaged 7.7 points and 2.4 assists.

Whomever the Lakers sign probably will have to accept a one-year contract as the team wants to preserve cap room for the summer of 2018.
