Pelicans, Rajon Rondo Agree To Contract

16 July 2017

After a meeting earlier in the week, sources confirmed Saturday morning that the Pelicans had agreed to a 1-year deal with point guard Rajon Rondo.

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. The Pelicans already brought back point guard Jrue Holiday this summer, but he could move to shooting guard if Rondo is added.

One of the best point guards still available is Rajon Rondo, but that might not be for much longer. With the Bulls entering a rebuilding phase - and eager to pocket the $11 million difference - Rondo hit the free agent market, drawing interest from the Pelicans, the Lakers and the Knicks, according to various reports.

Rondo is entering his 13th National Basketball Association season after being drafted No. xx overall by the Celtics in xxxx.

Rondo played in 69 games with the Chicago Bulls last season and averaged 7.8 points, 6.7 assists and 5.1 rebounds.

However, a thumb injury kept him sidelined for the remainder of the campaign following Chicago's 2-0 series lead in the opening round of the postseason, in which the Bulls lost four straight to the Celtics.

If Rondo were to sign with the Pelicans, he would be rejoining former teammate DeMarcus Cousins as the two played together with the Sacramento Kings.

Rondo has become a journeyman late in his career.

This will be Rondo's fifth team dating to the 2014-15 season.
