LA Lakers 'steal' the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year from Clippers

Marcus Morris

Rajon Rondo was a massive piece to the Los Angeles Lakers' puzzle this past season as helped the team win their 17th National Basketball Association championship. Green agreed to a two-year contract with Denver worth $15 million, with a player option for the second year that could allow him to enter free agency again next summer when more teams are expected to have cap space to spend.

The LA Clippers and Marcus Morris have reached an agreement on a 4-year, $64 million contract, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Lakers have already added depth to a roster boasting LeBron James and Anthony Davis within their ranks by trading for point guard Dennis Schroder from the Oklahoma City Thunder. Morris finished the 2019-20 campaign after starting the year with the New York Knicks.

Matthews is a versatile defender, able to defend point guards, shooting guards and small forwards.

Rajon Rondo has not announced where he will be signing in free agency, but it looks like it won't be with the Los Angeles Lakers. Rondo averaged 8.9 points and 6.6 assists in 24.7 minutes per game in the postseason with the Lakers.

Howard, who came back to the Lakers and played a pivotal role in the team winning the championship last month, will join Philadelphia on a veteran minimum exception for one year and $2.6 million, his agent Charles Briscoe told The Los Angeles Times on Friday night.
