The Clippers needed to find another ball-handler and playmaker and they have found one in Playoff Rondo.
In 27 games with the Hawks this season, Rondo averaged 3.9 points and 3.5 assists.
This will be Williams' second stop in Atlanta, after playing for the Hawks from 2012 to 2014. He's been a stellar scoring presence off the bench, but he's been exposed in the playoffs for his lack of defense. He's averaging just over 12 points per game on the campaign.
