According to Zach Lowe of ESPN, the Kings are prepared to cut bait with Rajon Rondo if his free agency turns into a bidding war.
The Kings already have an excellent point guard under contract for next season in Darren Collison, so it wouldn't make a lot of sense for Sacramento to overpay for the 30-year-old guard. There are several teams around the league in need of a starting PG, so Rondo should get plenty of interest considering he's arguably the second best free agent PG after Mike Conley. May 20 - 10:29 AM

The Kings have reportedly "cooled slightly" on the idea of re-signing unrestricted free agent Rajon Rondo.

According to Kings' writer James Ham, "The Kings have not completely turned their backs on a possible return, but they are also not going to get into a bidding war for Rondo’s services." Defensive lapses were a constant for Rondo last season, and the Kings yielded the 10th-most points and third-most assists to opposing point guards. Rondo benefited from the blistering pace of George Karl's offense this year, so fantasy owners should temper expectations for 2016-17.

The Kings reportedly will not get into a bidding war for Rajon Rondo this offseason.

While Rondo had a nice season statistically in Sacramento, the end result was still a losing record for the Kings, and it doesn't sound like the struggling franchise is fully committed to retaining his services despite Rondo's connection with DeMarcus Cousins. A Rondo departure would provide a major boost to the fantasy value of Darren Collison.

Rajon Rondo, Darren Collison and DeMarcus Cousins will all be rested for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Rockets.

The Kings are trying to avoid sending their top-10 protected pick to Chicago, so they will withhold all their main guys from Wednesday's game. Seth Curry's usage rate should border on ridiculous Wednesday night, and both him and Rudy Gay (if available) will make for excellent DFS targets. Rondo had a nice bounce-back season, and it'll be interesting to see what kind of salary he can earn on the open market as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
Apr 12 - 3:43 PM

Rajon Rondo and Darren Collison will rest on Monday against the Suns.

The Kings are pulling out all of the stops for their tanking, especially after they got a win against OKC on Saturday. Of course, if they win out, there's a decent chance they will lose their top-10 protected pick to the Bulls. Rondo is unlikely to play again this season. Meanwhile, Seth Curry is going to be very, very busy while Duje Dukan gets some minutes.

Apr 11 - 4:23 PM

Rajon Rondo (rest) is out again on Saturday against the Thunder.

He's getting rest for the second straight game, which is somewhat surprising with the Kings playing their final game at Sleep Train Arena tonight. Darren Collison becomes a must-play option while Seth Curry is also very appealing.
Apr 9 - 7:02 PM

Rajon Rondo (rest) will not suit up for Thursday's game against the Timberwolves.

With Rondo on the sidelines, Darren Collison will more than likely return to the starting five, and there will be more opportunity for Seth Curry. Both those guys are looking like solid DFS targets with a favorable matchup against Minnesota.

Apr 7 - 3:47 PM

Rajon Rondo (rest) returned from a one-game absence on Tuesday vs. the Blazers and triple-doubled, finishing with 27 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds.

The points were a season high and he was allowed to play 42 minutes because it was Darren Collison's turn to get a maintenance day. The Kings are tanking and don't want to lose their top-10 protected pick, so there's still a chance that Rondo could get a game off this week even though their only two games are at home.
Apr 6 - 12:53 AM

Rajon Rondo is starting vs. the Blazers on Tuesday.

Darren Collison will get the night off to rest, so Rondo is looking at a lot of minutes even though the Kings are tanking. The Kings play two more times at home this week, so hopefully Rondo won't be rested for either of those.
Apr 5 - 10:04 PM

Rajon Rondo (rest) has been ruled out for Saturday against the Nuggets.

It's a road game in a back-to-back set, so this move was coming. Rondo did not play well on Friday with five points, five rebounds, 10 assists, one steal and three turnovers. Darren Collison will be a must-start player while Seth Curry is also a must-start player in DFS and in almost all leagues, too.
Apr 2 - 1:16 AM

Rajon Rondo (toe, shoulder, thumb) will be in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Heat.

Seth Curry, Rudy Gay, Willie Cauley-Stein and Quincy Acy will join Rondo in the starting five. Rondo gets a tough matchup against Miami tonight, and he hasn't been great in the past sans DMC, so he's a risky guy to deploy in DFS.

Rajon Rondo (toe, shoulder, thumb) is probable to play against the Heat on Friday.

He will likely play Friday and sit out Saturday against the Nuggets. Darren Collison will likely come off the bench with Seth Curry getting another start. Rondo doesn't have great numbers without DeMarcus Cousins, so he's not an ideal DFS target.
Mar 31 - 7:53 PM

Rajon Rondo (toe, thumb, shoulder) was ejected at the end of Wednesday's game, which he finished with 15 points, 11 assists, four steals and a pair of 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

Rondo was jawing at the refs all night and was finally booted when he and DeMarcus Cousins sarcastically applauded a foul call. The ejection won't have any repercussions but he's battled minor injuries for weeks and the Kings have made it clear that their veterans may face more DNP-CDs down the stretch, particularly in back-to-back situations. Unfortunately, the Kings play on both Friday and Saturday this weekend.
Mar 31 - 12:40 AM

Rajon Rondo will start against the Wizards on Wednesday.

He is coming off a rest night and should be ready to go. Rondo has dealt with toe, shoulder and thumb issues, so he might not be 100 percent. He will likely be rested again at some point.
Mar 30 - 10:06 PM

Rajon Rondo (toe, thumb, shoulder) is probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Wizards.

He sat out of Monday's game vs. the Blazers to rest and he could have more maintenance days moving forward. His outlook isn't great because he's a shut-down candidate with the Kings out of the playoff hunt, but he's worth deploying in all lineups while he's active. Darren Collison will likely return to the bench Wednesday.
