Six months ago, we all thought Rajon Rondo was looking at a max contract this summer, with teams like the Lakers seemingly very interested. But after a complete trainwreck of a stint in Dallas, Rondo might not get the kind of pay day he was expecting. So where will Rondo end up? According to one report, a “darkhorse location” could be Sacramento, where the Kings need an upgrade at PG and have one of the most talented big men in the game in DeMarcus Cousins.

From Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe:

A darkhorse location for Rajon Rondo in free agency is Sacramento, where the Kings are entering a pivotal year in their franchise and could use a bona fide point guard. Darren Collison, coming off hip surgery, is the team’s scheduled starter for next season. Rondo, who didn’t appear interested in going to the Kings a few years ago, could use the club as a springboard to perhaps a larger contract if he signs a one-year deal. Rondo is also close friends with Kings forward Rudy Gay.
