The Lakers, albeit under previous management, have experience doing this as they waived former point guard Kendall Marshall in a similar move.
The Los Angeles Lakers have signed guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to a one-year deal worth $18 million. Rondo and the Lakers were linked together earlier in the offseason.
Rondo, very similarly to Rose, as he had a solid season with the Bulls a year ago despite all of the off the court issues and front office troubles the Bulls were having. He averaged 11.9 points and 11.7 assists with six rebounds the season before with the Sacramento Kings, so there's no question he can still perform at a high level. It is believed he will play a significant role on a rising team.
Head coach Luke Walton and Magic Johnson are unlikely to start Rondo over Ball, so he'd be the force behind their second-unit, which may be a flawless fit. Or would Ennis be a better fit as the third guard with Clarkson taking over as the backup point guard and someone such as David Nwaba or Josh Hart is the backup shooting guard?The Lakers get a very strong two-way player without handcuffing themselves in free agency down the line.
Before anything else goes down, here's three reasons that signing Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was the right move for the Lakers.
This one's a bit tougher to gauge.
Caldwell-Pope was among the top talents remaining on the free agent market after spending his first four National Basketball Association seasons with the Detroit Pistons.
The DetroitPistons renounced their rights to the 24-year-old shooting guard on Friday, after acquiring Avery Bradley from the Boston Celtics for Marcus Morris.
Like Clarkson, Pope has spent his first few seasons in the National Basketball Association playing for a team that lacked the talent and assets to be a playoff contender.
Caldwell-Pope will miss the first two games of the upcoming season. If the things work out the way both sides are hoping to, Caldwell-Pope might be in Lakers uniform for more than one season.
The most realistic option is probably Rondo, though.
