According to multiple sources, Rondo did not receive a playoff share as the Mavericks divided up $208,940, their portion as a team that competed in the first round, but did not advance. Rondo left the team after Game 2, ostensibly with a back injury. He did not stay around to support his teammates. We're not talking about a big chunk of money, by NBA standards. Assuming the other 14 Maverick players got full playoff shares, their take per person was $14,924. It's not unprecedented for a player to be excluded from the playoff pool A few years ago, Lamar Odom did not receive a playoff share when he parted ways with the team late in the season.
