Rajon Rondo had meeting with New Orleans Pelicans Thursday

The 31-year-old point guard agreed to sign with the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday, per Shams Charania of The Vertical. The meeting reportedly went well and the two sides could begin contract discussions as early as Thursday.

Rondo played with Pelicans center DeMarcus Cousins in Sacramento during the 2015-16 season, and the two formed a strong bond.? Rondo had a rough first season in Chicago and found himself on the bench during one stretch of the regular season. He was in and out of the Bulls' rotation at times, but was looked upon as a leader for younger Bulls players.

After helping the Bulls get off to a solid start in November, Rondo struggled to find his form alongside ball-dominant players like Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Butler.




He finished the season averaging 7.8 points, 5.1 rebounds, 6.7 assists and 1.4 steals per game.

However, a thumb injury kept him sidelined for the remainder of the campaign following Chicago's 2-0 series lead in the opening round of the postseason, in which the Bulls lost four straight to the Celtics.

In Rondo, the Pelicans envision a potential starting or reserve point guard alongside Jrue Holiday in the backcourt. After that, the Bulls waived Rondo to save about $10 million of the $13.4 million he would have made next season. He was a starter on the Celtics' 2008 championship team.
