Rondo might not be the Lakers’ starting PG after all

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.

    Cousins is currently a better player than Kuzma. He starts.

      The only way he starts is if they decide to put Davis at pf and cousins at center. His injuries won’t allow him to play pf anymore. It’s amazing he was even able to come back at all. Pre injury I agree he starts no matter who is there. Post injury, he’s limited in what he can do which is why his worth is so down.
