The Boston Celtics came close to making an NBA Finals appearance but couldn’t quite get beyond the Miami Heat. Making some reconfiguration to the roster could help. Could Los Angeles Lakers’ Rajon Rondo be an option?

According to Hoops Legion Ross, the Celtics have ‘some minor interest’ in signing Rondo this NBA offseason. Boston is looking to take a step forward towards title contention and he was a key member of their most recent successful run.

During the Lakers’ championship run, it was evident that Rondo made a meaningful impact. His ability to defend on the ball and also run a half-court offense are quite helpful in big moments and throughout the course of a playoff series.

At this stage of Rondo’s career, he is now embracing whatever role is needed in order for his team to win. The Celtics have plenty of young players that shoulder the load in the scoring department but could use a steady hand to put those talents in favorable positions to get the ball.

The Lakers will need to do what they can in order to retain Rondo. It just remains to be seen whether they will have the necessary salary cap space to make a competitive offer. However, they will have no shortage of potential suitors to go up against this NBA offseason— like the Celtics.

There will be other options for the Boston Celtics if they weren’t able to sign Rajon Rondo in free agency. It’s an option that would provide a boost to their second unit while making a fellow title contender a little worse.
