Don’t get too excited about Rajon Rondo guiding the Lakers just yet. Turns out, he might not be the Lakers’ starting point guard next season after all.
According to a new story from Yahoo! Sports, LeBron James will move to point guard next season and the plan is for him to run the Lakers’ offense, not Rondo, who reportedly agreed to a two-year deal with the Lakers over the weekend.
James is expected to share the starting backcourt with newly-acquired Danny Green, formerly of the world champion Toronto Raptors, alongside Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins and, most likely, Kyle Kuzma on the wing.
PG – LeBron James
SG – Danny Green
SF – Kyle Kuzma
PF – Anthony Davis
C – DeMarcus Cousins
Rondo would then share the backup PG responsibilities with Quinn Cook and Alex Caruso, who I can’t believe is a legit NBA player out of Texas A&M.
For what it’s worth, the Lakers still haven’t announced Rondo’s new deal.
