After winning the NBA Finals with the Los Angeles Lakers, the second championship of his lengthy career, Rajon Rondo is taking his talents to the other side of the country.

According to Shams Charania, the 14-year NBA vet has agreed to a two-year, $15-million deal with the Atlanta Hawks. The veteran point guard will be tasked to develop budding star Trae Young after the Lakers traded for Dennis Schroder, a player many have simply referred to as “the newer Rondo.”

A Louisville native, Rondo won his first title in 2008 with the Boston Celtics. Now on his seventh NBA team, the former Wildcat is a four-time NBA All-Star.

    We to go RR. Parlay that great playoff run into a nice 2 year deal and use it for a really nice nest egg for retirement. So happy for him, he is not the most likable guy in the world, but damn if he is not one of the smartest, most competitive PG’s to ever lace em up. Would love to see him get into coaching, if they players wouldn’t kill him of course. Probably to hard to play for, but then again, they couldn’t doubt what he was teaching.

    The article said Rondo was from New Orleans? Am I crazy, isn’t Rondo from Kentucky?
