Paul George shared his thoughts on the addition of Rajon Rondo to the roster of the Los Angeles Clippers.

George was excited about Rondo’s addition and praised his leadership skills.

“I look at him as a leader of this group. [His voice] holds weight in this locker room. He’ll hold us accountable, and that’s what you need: someone that can say what needs to be said.

I think we can reserve more energy. I relate it to the relationship I have with Russ, Russ created a lot of close out situations for me. It’ll be the same thing with Rondo. Rondo can get to the middle of the paint, can make plays,” George said about Rondo, via Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints and Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.
