New Orleans Pelicans, Rajon Rondo agree to one-year deal

Chicago Bulls guard Rajon Rondo during the second quarter of a first-round NBA playoff basketball game in Boston Tuesday

Free agent guard Rajon Rondo will meet with the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday regarding a potential one-year deal, according to ESPN's Zach Lowe.

Rajon Rondo's deep career tour through the National Basketball Association will continue in 2017-18 when he plays for the New Orleans Pelicans, his fifth team in four seasons. After the team resigned point guard Jrue Holiday this offseason, they didn't have a traditional back up to his position.

Rajon Rondo has apparently already found a new organization.

The Chicago Bulls waived Rondo on June 30 after just one season.




Rondo was a four-time All-Star and won a championship with the Boston Celtics.

Rondo averaged 7.8 points and 6.7 assists per game over 69 games and 26.7 minutes per with the Bulls last season. In joining the Pelicans, the 11-year veteran point guard will be reunited with former Sacramento Kings teammate DeMarcus Cousin, with whom he grew close during the 2015-16 season. However, he did have a strong playoff series against Boston, and was key in the Bulls jumping out to a lead in that first round match-up, which Boston eventually overcame.

Rondo averaged 7.8 points and 6.7 assists a year ago with the Bulls, marks that were significantly lower than his career averages of 10.7 points and 8.5 assists.

Despite his bumpy 2016-17 season, Rondo remains one of only three players to average at least six assists the past nine seasons. But Rondo missed the rest of that series with a broken thumb.
