Rajon Rondo clearly won’t be returning to the Los Angeles Lakers, but there remains some doubt regarding his ultimate destination.

According to Marc Stein of the New York Times, the Atlanta Hawks are still regarded as the front-runner for the veteran guard. However, the Los Angeles Clippers are still “in the hunt” for Rondo.

One thing seems certain: Rondo’s time with the Lakers is over. In an Instagram post Saturday, he thanked the organization, staff, players and fans in a goodbye message.

Rondo might prefer the Clippers. They’re closer to contention. However, the Hawks could be willing to offer a bigger payday. At this point, that may make the difference.
