Pelicans, Rajon Rondo agree to one-year deal

The New Orleans Pelicans have reached a one-year deal with free-agent point guard Rajon Rondo, a source confirmed to The Undefeated’s Marc J. Spears on Saturday.

Sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe on Thursday that Pelicans officials — which included general manager Dell Demps and coach Alvin Gentry — met with Rondo and that it went “excellent.”

Rondo’s agreement with the Pelicans was first reported by The Vertical.

Rondo surged in the playoffs before breaking his thumb after what had been a largely disappointing and turbulent season with the Chicago Bulls in which he averaged 7.8 points and 6.7 assists — well below his career averages of 10.7 points and 8.5 assists per game.

The Pelicans re-signed Jrue Holiday to a five-year, $126 million guaranteed deal that could be worth more than $150 million with incentives, but they were intrigued by the possibility of shifting Holiday off the ball for large chunks of games, sources told ESPN.
