Rajon Rondo had meeting with New Orleans Pelicans Thursday

After a meeting earlier in the week, sources confirmed Saturday morning that the Pelicans had agreed to a 1-year deal with point guard Rajon Rondo. The move comes days removed from a report from Zach Lowe of ESPN, who noted that the two parties were slated to meet.

The sides are said to be working on a one-year deal. The Pelicans are still a relatively young team that could definitely use a veteran with playoff experience on their roster.

Rondo played for the Chicago Bulls last season, averaging 7.8 points, 6.7 assists and 5.1 rebounds in 69 games.

Should Rondo sign, he would be the second point guard New Orleans signs this offseason.

She attempted to regain her composure before telling the moderator, "Maybe I should go", and then left the room. Mugurza, however, is determined to do whatever it takes to once again halt a Williams' charge in the final.

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. Rondo played very well in the first two games, but was then lost for the remainder of the series with a thumb injury.

A former teammate of Pelicans center DeMarcus Cousins in Sacramento, Rondo would likely serve as a backup to Jrue Holiday. In 72 games for the Kings, Rondo averaged 11.9 points and a league-leading 11.7 assists.

A four-time All-Star and an National Basketball Association champion in Boston, Rondo bounced around after eight-plus years with the Celtics. He was waived by the Bulls in June after just one year with the team.
