The Los Angeles Clippers are acquiring Rajon Rondo from the Atlanta in exchange for Lou Williams, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania. The Hawks will also get cash and two second-round picks from the Clippers. The Clippers pursued Rondo this offseason, but could not make the money work once they used their non-taxpayer mid-level exception to sign Serge Ibaka.
Rondo signed a two-year deal with the Hawks this offseason, but has largely been a disappointment. He has averaged only 3.9 points and 3.5 assists per game in a bench role this season, and with Bogdan getting healthy, the Hawks just don't have many spare minutes to offer a player who is struggling.
Rondo should help provide a good point guard who can score and even if he isn't a great regular-season player anymore, last season proved just how effective he can be in the playoffs.
