NBA point guard Rajon Rondo has been accused by the mother of his two children of pulling a gun on her and threatening to kill her on May 11, according to TMZ Sports.
Rondo spent the second half of last season with the Cavaliers, though he will be an unrestricted free agent in July and is not expected to return.
Per the report, Ashley Bachelor filed an emergency protective order against Rondo following an incident at her home.
“Bachelor says Rondo was playing video games with hers and Rondo’s son when Bachelor asked the boy to separate laundry,” TMZ wrote. “Rondo supposedly became enraged and violently ripped the video game console out of the wall. Bachelor claims Rondo then went into a full meltdown and smashed several objects.”
Rondo then left the home before returning 15 minutes later, banging on the back window with a gun, Bachelor alleged.
“Bachelor says the children became extremely upset and she tried to calm the situation. At that point, Rondo allegedly told her ‘you’re dead’ and left the home,” TMZ wrote.
The Cavs acquired Rondo in a trade with the Lakers after veteran point guard Ricky Rubio was lost for the season to a knee injury in December.
Rondo, 36, appeared in 21 regular-season games with the Cavs and averaged 6.2 points and 4.9 assists. He was viewed positively as a strong locker room and practice presence in Cleveland.
Along with the Cavs and Lakers, Rondo has spent time with the Hawks, Mavericks, Clippers, Pelicans, Bulls and Kings. His career started with the Celtics, winning a championship in 2008.
