New Orleans met with Rondo late this week, and the two sides started negotiating a contract shortly thereafter.
The Pelicans are trying to keep pace with the other teams in the Western Conference that have loaded up this offseason, and they believe that Rondo and Jrue Holiday can play alongside each other with Holiday playing off the ball. New Orleans wants as a playmaker who can make the most out of playing with Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins, and think Rondo can be that guy.
Rondo averaged 7.8 points, 6.7 assists and 5.1 rebounds per game last season.
