In different internet sites, the starting quintet that will be used by the Lakers ahead of the 2021-22 campaign of the NBA. The leak is somewhat surprising, since Frank Vogel intends to show a remarkable variation in the positions of power forward and center.

Although Rajon rondo continues to show that he can be an effective driver of the game as a point guard, the veteran may not have much participation as a point guard during the upcoming season, according to a report from Yahoo Sports.
Although the Lakers have a veteran squad that involves a distribution of minutes by various members of the rotation, Rondo would not have much of a place at least in the beginning. “He is not expected to play a lot and even not play in some games,” said Yahoo Sports from a source close to the team.
