PG • 6’1, 186 lbs; 14th year, Kentucky

HYBRID

NBA ROLE: CRAFTY FLOOR GENERAL

 

In the right system, Rajon Rondo can beautifully orchestrate an offense in a non-scoring role; incredible vision – Rondo knows where his teammates are going to be (even before they do in some cases), generates clean looks – if there’s even the tiniest of openings, Rondo’s able to thread the needle, drop a direct dime (excellent at recognizing & exploiting lax coverage); not labeled as a shooter but Rondo takes the correct approach: he makes ’em pay by passing over the top (if defenders go under screens) and attempting shots in his zones (elbow Js, corner treys); great rebounder for his size – pushes the break after long boards; one of the most polarizing PGs of the modern era, Rondo’s managed to thrive as a traditional floor general in today’s "non-traditional" game; signed w/ Lakers (Summer '18) – veteran leader & floor general – Rondo spreads the wealth, kickstarts fast-paced action
