The idea of Rajon Rondo joining the Los Angeles Lakers is suddenly closer to reality. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the enigmatic free agent met with Lakers president Magic Johnson in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

We’re not exactly sure what the meeting entailed, but the Lakers were previously said to be interested in the veteran. It would surely be an odd marriage, especially with rookie point guard Lonzo Ball on the roster.

How that dynamic would work is anyone’s guess, but it’s safe to say Rondo wouldn’t top the list of veteran mentors around the NBA.

Rondo was released by the Chicago Bulls earlier this summer after a drama-filled season with the team. He’s been a malcontent everywhere he’s been throughout an otherwise successful career.

Rondo, 31, averaged 7.8 points and 6.7 assists while shooting at a 41 percent clip from the field for Chicago last season.
