|Rajon Rondo: Dealt to Memphis|
Rondo was traded to the Grizzlies on Sunday, along with Patrick Beverley and Daniel Oturu, in exchange for Eric Bledsoe, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The Scoop: The veteran point guard began last season in Atlanta before coming over to the Clippers at the trade deadline. Injuries ultimately prevented Rondo from making a significant impact, and he'll now be shipped to Memphis in a deal that sheds more than $30 million from the Clippers' luxury tax bill next season. While Memphis could find use for Rondo as a mentor and backup to rising star Ja Morant, Wojnarowski notes the Grizzlies are "open-minded" when it comes to potentially rerouting Rondo, Beverley and/or Oturu before the start of the 2021-22 season. If that turns out to be the case, Rondo would likely look to latch on with a title contender as he heads into his age-35 season.
