After having a less than blockbuster year with the Chicago Bulls, Rajon Rondo has reportedly agreed to a one-year contract with the New Orleans Pelicans.
Rondo averaged just 7.8 points per game with the Bulls, which was his lowest mark since he was a rookie. His assists and steals averages also took a dive from the 2015-16 campaign, going from 11.7 and 2.0 to 6.7 and 1.4, respectively.
Rondo played with Pelicans center DeMarcus Cousins in Sacramento during the 2015-16 season.
In their lone season together, Rondo averaged a league-leading 11.7 assists per game, to along with 11.9 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.0 steals. He recorded 237 assists to Cousins — his most assists to one player in a single season.
This will be Rondo’s fifth team dating to the 2014-15 season.
