Free agent Rajon Rondo has reached agreement on a one-year deal with the New Orleans Pelicans, league sources tell The Vertical.

So now Davis gets to play with 2 headcases for a whole season. Lol 

Lakers miss out on rondo, and one more team better than the fakers (and nets).

That team is going to be very  interesting. Either really good, or really bad

Curious to see whether it's for the veteran's minimum.

Rondo and Boogie are meant for one another.  Hope they can put a decent team together here. Horrid uniforms though. So miserable to look at.

They have most of their mid-level exception available, so I would expect it's using that.

If the Celtics 3 max contract guys were boogie, Davis, and Rondo, no one would be complaining much lol.

  • Peace it's a board. We all will never agree.
I hope he can lead them to the playoffs. Holliday can play without the ball.

If they stay healthy (huge if) I think that could be an absolutely incredible team

Rondo and Boogie played well together in Sac, you could tell they enjoyed playing together. That's gonna be a fun reunion.

Putting him with TWO offensively capable bigs should be a treat to watch. He's basically got a new age Shaq and KG to play with.
Danny Ainge got fleeced.

Yeah, I would not play Holiday out of position for Rondo.  Rondo is veteran insurance/back up in my mind.

I would take Rondo over Holiday 10/10 times.

It's hard to measure heart.

Good for rondo.  Wonder how much $?  Hope him & boogie drive Davis crazy and Davis demands a trade to the C's

Happy for Rajon.

He's playing with 2 of the best bigs in the game right now.

As long as the coach gives him the KEYS from the GET GO they will be fine and should make the playoffs.

Trust Rondo.

He's proved himself in CHI - after a rocky start he finished WELL - giving BOS quite the scare and looking every bit as in control of things as he was from 2010-2012.

He was key in supporting the rookies as well.

Again I wish him well.
