Heading to Milwaukee
After appearing in nine games with the Thunder last season, Robinson has agreed to a two-way deal with the Bucks. The 23-year-old has averaged just 1.9 points and 0.9 assists per game in 7.6 minutes of action throughout 18 career appearances but will look to make the most out of his opportunity with Milwaukee. As a two-way signee, he'll likely spend time in the G League with minimal impact at the NBA level.

Rejoins Lakers on one-year deal
Over the weekend, news surfaced suggesting Rondo and the Grizzlies had agreed to a buyout, and the veteran guard is set to become a free agent later Monday. Once that happens, he'll return to the Lakers, a team he helped to the NBA title in the Orlando bubble in the 2019-20 season. Rondo began last season in Atlanta before being dealt to the Clippers at the trade deadline. Earlier in August, he was sent to Memphis as part of the deal that brought Eric Bledsoe to the Clippers. Rondo, who will turn 36 in February, appeared in only 45 total games last season, averaging career lows in points (5.4 per game), rebounds (2.4) and minutes per game (17.1). As a trusted confidant of LeBron James, Rondo should work his way into the Lakers' rotation, but with Russell Westbrook, Kendrick Nunn, Talen Horton-Tucker and James all capable of running the point, Rondo will likely be forced to settle for a reduced role.

Set to join Lakers
After the Heat rescinded Nunn's qualifying offer earlier Tuesday, the guard turned around and worked out a deal with the Lakers. Charania notes that Nunn turned down more money with the Knicks, among other teams, to join a title-contender in Los Angeles. With Nunn in the fold, the Lakers have completely re-tooled their roster around LeBron James and Anthony Davis, swapping out some depth pieces to bring in a third star in Russell Westbrook. Nunn will likely vie for minutes at both guard spots alongside Wayne Ellington, Talen Horton-Tucker, Malik Monk and Kent Bazemore. The Illinois product is coming off of averaging 14.6 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 2.2 made threes (38.1% 3Pt) per game for the Heat last season.
