The Los Angeles Lakers aren't stopping with LeBron James. They continue to revamp their roster.

Last night, LA re-signed Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and brought in JaVale McGee and Lance Stephenson. Now, Rajon Rondo is the next to join the fold.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Rondo will sign a one-year contract with the Lakers.

The 32-year-old Rondo spent last season with the New Orleans Pelicans. He averaged 8.3 points and 8.2 rebounds per game.

In the playoffs, Rondo upped his production to 10.3 points and 12.2 assists per contest. He led the entire playoffs in assists per game.

Rondo has a championship under his belt with the Boston Celtics and is known for being a great facilitator and coach on the floor. However, Rondo is also known for being difficult to coach at times.

Like Stephenson and McGee he has ample talent but also holds the potential to cause problems in the locker room.
