Former Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo is on the move yet again.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Sunday that Rondo, along with Patrick Beverly and Daniel Oturu, had been dealt from the Los Angeles Clippers to the Memphis Grizzlies in exchange for Eric Bledsoe.

The Grizzlies will be Rondo's ninth NBA team and his eighth in as many seasons. A four-time All-Star and 2008 champion with the Celtics, Rondo was shipped to the Dallas Mavericks midway through the 2014-15 season and hasn't spent more than two full seasons in a single location since.

Since spending half a season in Dallas, Rondo has played for the Sacramento Kings, Chicago Bulls, New Orleans Pelicans, Los Angeles Lakers -- where he won another championship in 2020 -- and split last season between the Atlanta Hawks and Clippers. 

The record for most NBA franchises played for is 12, shared by four players. Ish Smith and Anthony Tolliver are the active leaders, at 11 teams each.

The 35-year-old Rondo averaged a career-low 5.4 points per game last season between the Hawks and Clippers and is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent next summer.
