Rajon Rondo could be boom or bust for the New Orleans Pelicans

A person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press that the New Orleans Pelicans have agreed in principle on a one-year deal with 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.

Rondo was a four-time All-Star and won a championship with the Boston Celtics.

ESPN first reported the sitdown citing sources who labeled the meeting "excellent".

The 31-year-old Rondo signed a two-year deal with the Bulls in the summer of 2016, but he was waived by Chicago on June 30.

Rondo played in 69 games with the Chicago Bulls last season and averaged 7.8 points, 6.7 assists and 5.1 rebounds. He did, however, set a career high in 3-point percentage with his mark of 37.6 on 1.9 attempts per game and was instrumental in the first two games of Chicago's first-round playoff series against Boston - both wins - before suffering a thumb injury that ended his campaign.

Rondo also played with Pelican's center DeMarcus Cousins in Sacramento during the 2015-16 season.

With the Pelicans, Rondo will once again share the court with Cousins, a volatile personality in his own right.

Rondo averaged 7.8 points and 6.7 assists past year with the Bulls, marks that were significantly lower than his career averages of 10.7 points and 8.5 assists.

Rondo fell completely out of the Bulls' rotation last season for a stretch of five games in January before coach Fred Hoiberg came to rely on him as a veteran presence.
