Report: Sacramento Kings considered a darkhorse for Rajon Rondo

download (28)Dallas Mavericks point guard Rajon Rondo is scheduled to become a free agent later on this summer. Many thought that Rondo was expected to get a big payday, but a terrible stint with the Mavericks has hurt his stock tremendously. The Lakers were considered the front-runners due to Rondo relationship with Kobe Bryant. But another team in California has emerged as a darkhorse for Rondo’s services. According to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe, the Sacramento Kings are considered the darkhorse for Rondo.


A darkhorse location for Rajon Rondo in free agency is Sacramento, where the Kings are entering a pivotal year in their franchise and could use a bona fide point guard. Darren Collison, coming off hip surgery, is the team’s scheduled starter for next season. Rondo, who didn’t appear interested in going to the Kings a few years ago, could use the club as a springboard to perhaps a larger contract if he signs a one-year deal. Rondo is also close friends with Kings forward Rudy Gay.


Matching Rondo up with Rudy Gay and DeMarcus Cousins could be a deadly big three. The thing that would scare me is Rondo and Cousins attitudes in the same locker room together.
