Cavaliers Lose Rubio for the Season, Acquire Rondo from the Lakers

Less than a week after losing Ricky Rubio for the season, the Cleveland Cavaliers already had their replacement.

Rubio, who became a large part of the Cleveland Cavaliers backcourt, especially following Collin Sexton’s season-ending injury, last played on December 28 against the New Orleans Pelicans. He would put together a stellar 27 point, 13 rebound and nine assists performance before being forced to leave the game with a knee injury.

The following day, it was announced that Rubio would miss the remainder of the season with a torn ACL.

Immediately in scramble mode, the 20-16 Cavaliers struck a deal before the start of the new year with the Los Angeles Lakers, acquiring point guard Rajon Rondo for 28-year old Denzel Valentine. Rondo was lost in the shuffle in a crowded Lakers back court but is expected to receive regular minutes with the Cavaliers.

The 35-year old point guard has been averaging 3.1 points and 3.7 assist across 16 minutes per game with the Lakers.
