Rondo agrees Pelicans deal

FOUR-TIME NBA All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo, who helped Boston win the 2008 National Basketball Association title, has agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the New Orleans Pelicans, according to media reports on Saturday. The 31-year-old American committed to a deal after meeting with Pelicans general manager Dell Demps and head coach Alvin Gentry, ESPN reported. Rondo, a former teammate of Pelicans center DeMarcus Cousins in Sacramento during the 2015-16 campaign, likely will serve as a backup to Jrue Holiday, who was re-signed to a five-year, US$126 million guaranteed deal. The Pelicans have been intrigued at the idea of playing Holiday in other spots, an option Rondo might provide. It will be the fifth club in four seasons for Rondo, who last season averaged 7.8 points, 6.7 assists and 5.1 rebounds in 69 games for the Chicago Bulls.
