Rondo, Hawks agree to 2-year deal

Journeyman point guard Rajon Rondo is joining the Atlanta Hawks on a reported two-year, $15 million deal.

The 34-year-old Rondo is entering his 15th NBA season and this will be his sixth team. He spent the last two with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Rondo thanked the Lakers, his teammates and the fans on Instagram earlier Saturday. 

"To the fans...thank you for welcoming me with open arms from Day 1 and showing me love. Being apart of #LakeShow was something special and I'm proud we brought it back to you!"

Rondo, who played a key role in the Lakers’ title run this past season, will back up 22-year-old Hawks star Trae Young. 

Also, the Toronto Raptors are poised to sign guard Fred VanVleet to a four-year, $85 million deal, Canadian media reported.

The deal represents a huge payday for VanVleet, who entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2016. 

VanVleet played a crucial role in the Raptors' run to a championship in 2019.
