Rajon Rondo meeting with Pelicans

Rajon Rondo meeting with Pelicans”

He owns a championship ring with a title in Boston.

Rajon Rondo may not be the player he once was, but the high variance that comes with the point guard makes his situation with the New Orleans Pelicans a potential high-risk, high-reward situation. He was traded to Dallas in December 2014, where he clashed with coach Rick Carlisle.

He also called out veterans Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Butler in an Instagram post in January after they had publicly criticized some of their other teammates. However he surged in the playoffs, helping lead the Chicago Bulls to upset victories over #1 seed Boston, before a broken thumb ended his season. With Rondo sidelined, the Bulls lost four straight.

Rondo's reputation was restored enough by the Bulls' elimination that he was a candidate to be brought back - except only $3 million of his $14 million salary for 2017-18 was guaranteed if Chicago released him by June 30. The meeting reportedly went well and the two sides could begin contract discussions as early as Thursday.

Rondo joins Jrue Holiday in signing with the Pelicans this offseason. It's possible Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry will use the two guards together at times, with Holiday playing off the ball.

A source said Cousins played a "pivotal" role in Rondo coming to the Pelicans.

Rondo has become a journeyman late in his career.

Rondo has career averages of 10.7 points and 8.5 assists over 11 National Basketball Association seasons. He shot 40.6 percent overall and made just 60 percent of his free throws.
