Pelicans meet with Rajon Rondo about potential 1-year deal, report says

Rajon Rondo meets with Pelicans, could be reunited with DeMarcus Cousins

This summer has been especially insane in the National Basketball Association as there were a flurry of signings and trades from the onset.

The former Chicago Bulls point guard met with the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday over a potential one-year contract with the team, ESPN's Zach Lowe reported on Twitter, citing National Basketball Association sources.

The meeting reportedly went well, and Rondo and the Pelicans could begin negotiations as early as Friday (AEDT).

According to Shams Charania of The Vertical, Rondo and the Pelicans have agreed to a one-year deal.

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

The 11-year veteran averaged 7.8 points and 26.7 minutes in 69 regular season games this year, shooting 40.8 percent. He only averaged 27 minutes per game, which was his lowest average since his rookie season. Rondo flourished near the end of the season to lead Chicago to a 2-0 series lead over the top-seeded Boston Celtics in the first round of the playoffs before suffering a broken thumb.

Despite Rondo's dip in production, he is still a four-time All-Star with the potential to be a two-way force and can get out in transition and set up teammates.

The Bulls traded forward Jimmy Butler the night of the NBA Draft, paving the way for a rebuild that included declining their team option on Rondo. The Pelicans are intrigued with the idea of pairing Rondo next to Holiday for large chunks, allowing Holiday to play off the ball, per the report.

New Orleans has no proven point guard on the roster behind Holiday.
