Pelicans meeting with Rajon Rondo about potential one-year deal

NEW ORLEANS LA- APRIL 02 Chicago Bulls guard Rajon Rondo shoots against New Orleans Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday during the game between the New Orleans Pelicans and the against the Chicago Bulls

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

The Los Angeles Lakers were also reportedly interested in signing Rondo to a one-year deal this week, but it's unclear if their recent signing of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope affects those plans.

Rajon Rondo and the Pelicans could soon begin contract negotiations after a contingent of New Orleans officials met with the free agent point guard Thursday, according to an ESPN report. However, according to a Thursday afternoon report from Zach Lowe of ESPN, it appears as though the veteran signal caller may be one step closer to finding his next National Basketball Association franchise. Rondo had a rough first season in Chicago and found himself on the bench during one stretch of the regular season.

In 69 games with the Chicago Bulls, Rondo averaged 7.8 points, 6.7 assists and 5.1 rebounds in 26.7 minutes per game. With Rondo sidelined, the Bulls lost four straight. He played for the Dallas Mavericks, Kings and the Bulls.

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 reportedly think they can play Jrue Holiday and Rondo together.
