Protective order against Cleveland Cavaliers free agent Rajon Rondo dismissed

According to TMZ, the protective order that had been filed against Cleveland Cavaliers free agent point guard Rajon Rondo has been dropped.

CLEVELAND — The protective order that was filed against Cleveland Cavaliers free agent point guard Rajon Rondo last month has been dismissed, TMZ Sports is reporting.

According to the website, the petition against Rondo, which had been filed by his longtime partner and the mother of his two children, was dismissed as the result of the two sides "reaching an agreement." No further details are available at this time.

In May, TMZ reported that Ashley Bachelor had been granted an order of protection for herself, her son and daughter following an incident that occurred in Louisville, Kentucky. Bachelor alleged that the incident began when the 36-year-old veteran point guard became enraged after she asked their son to separate laundry while he was playing video games with Rondo.

Per the report, Rondo proceeded to rip the video game console out of the wall and smash various items including a teacup, outdoor lights and trash cans. After threatening Bachelor by telling her "you're dead," Rondo allegedly left the home for approximately 15 minutes and returned outside with a gun.

Rondo allegedly demanded that his son and daughter come outside, where he yelled at both kids for being afraid of him. Although efforts to calm him down were unsuccessful, he eventually left the scene. In her request for a protective order, Bachelor also alleged that Rondo had previously been physically and verbally abusive to their son and verbally abusive to her and their daughter.

The Cavs acquired the two-time NBA champion and four-time All-Star in a trade with the Los Angeles Lakers midway through the 2021-22 NBA season. In 21 games with Cleveland, the Kentucky product averaged 6.2 points and 4.9 assists.

With his contract having expired, Rondo is scheduled to hit free agency this summer.
