The Los Angeles Clippers are gaining Rajon Rondo from the Atlanta Hawks in return for Lou Williams, as per The Athletic’s Shams Charania. The Hawks will likewise get money and two second-round picks from the Clippers. The Clippers sought after Rondo this offseason, yet couldn’t bring in the cash work once they utilized their non-citizen mid-level exemption for sign Serge Ibaka. Williams, be that as it may, makes the very same measure of cash as Rondo, so an exchange got attainable from that point.
Rondo marked a two-year manage the Hawks this offseason, yet has to a great extent been a failure. He has found the middle value of just 3.9 focuses and 3.5 helps per game in a seat job this season, and with Bogdan Bogdanovic getting sound, the Hawks simply don’t have many extra minutes to bring to the table a player who is battling. In Williams, in any case, the Hawks not just get an additional scorer that all around had one fruitful spell in Atlanta, yet more significantly, get off of the second season on Rondo’s arrangement.
The Clippers, in the interim, have woefully come up short on a genuine point watch the entire season. Those battles have showed most extremely in the grasp, when the Clippers offense glances stale and in irritated need of ball-development. Rondo should help give that, and regardless of whether he is certainly not an incredible normal season player any longer, last season demonstrated exactly how successful he can be in the end of the season games.
The Clippers didn’t have a solitary tradable first-round pick to hang at this cutoff time, and they were light on practical coordinating with pay also. That restricted their roads to progress, so they took a swing on a veteran that, in the correct climate, could possibly have an effect in the postseason. In that sense, they grade out genuinely well in this arrangement.
