The reported mid-June trade that would send Anthony Davis to Los Angeles left the Lakers with just three players - LeBron James, Kyle Kuzma and rookie Talen Horton-Tucker - under contract for the upcoming season.
The Lakers continue to build an intriguing roster after missing out on Kawhi Leonard. Rondo, who also played with Davis and Cousins in the Big Easy, averaged 9.2 points with eight assists last season for the Purple and Gold.
The Lakers will hold onto Rondo for another two years, according to ESPN. Untimely and unfortunate injuries have kept him from performing in the postseason.
Earlier Saturday, Los Angeles signed Cousins, Danny Green and Quinn Cook and reached agreements to bring back Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and JaVale McGee.

She has 2 kids - 1-year-old James , whose father is Andrew, and 10-year-old Leah , whose father is her ex-boyfriend Gary Shirley . She and her boyfriend, Andrew Glennon , recently had a pregnancy scare on the " Teen Mom OG " show, according to TMZ .
While Quinn Cook is the only point guard on the Lakers roster right now, expect the proven victor to serve as the team's back-up point guard after LA makes some more moves, rather quickly, in free agency. Cousins' deal is expected to be for one year.
McGee, 31, is coming off his first year in Los Angeles and gives the Lakers a veteran presence to work alongside Davis. He started 62 of the 75 games he played in. The 25-year-old point guard will earn $5.5 million through 2020-21. Undrafted out of Duke, the point guard spent his time with a number of franchises before finding a home in Golden State. He averaged 6.9 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 14.3 minutes per game last season.
