This week on the “The Full 48” podcast, ESPN’s Rachel Nichols revealed Rondo nearly retired after his disastrous stint with the Dallas Mavericks. “He told me he almost retired a few years ago,” she said, per Silver Screen & Roll. “Because when the catastrophe in Dallas happened between him and Rick Carlisle —and we can assign all kinds of blame for that— he said only two teams called him that offseason. He was sort of thinking, ‘Well maybe I just don’t want to do this anymore.’ He could have been out of basketball.”
Rondo, who played a key role in the Lakers’ Game 6 victory and helped the organization win their 17th championship, has a player option worth $2.96 million for the 2020-21 season. By opting out, he will enter the market as the most experienced point guard available in terms of championship pedigree. Even though he isn’t opting in, Rondo could still re-sign with the Lakers.
