Rajon Rondo proved his worth with Los Angeles en route to his second NBA championship with the Lakers.
And after opting out of his $2.6 million option to test free agency, the 34-year-old point guard reportedly is headed to the Atlanta Hawks.
Rondo and the team have agreed to terms on a two-year, $15 million deal, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania and ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
The team reportedly is bringing in Kris Dunn on a two-year, $10 million deal.
Adding Rondo and Dunn to a roster with a young star like Trae Young certainly will make the Hawks’ better defensively.
It also puts to bed any hopes Boston fans had of Rondo rejoining the Boston Celtics.
