Rajon Rondo News

The Bulls will not make a decision on Rajon Rondo's team option until next week, according to Vincent Goodwill of CSN Chicago. This isn't surprising as the Bulls could have their roster look very different in 12 hours. The Bulls could be dealing away Jimmy Butler and would likely come away with either a point guard or a pick to select one, so those will be factors on Rondo.

The Bulls are still undecided as to whether or not they will pick up their team option worth $13.4 million for Rajon Rondo for the 2017-18 season, according to sources of Sean Highkin. Chicago is reportedly actively shopping Jimmy Butler, which hints that they're eager to begin a rebuild, and if that's the case it wouldn't make much sense to keep the 31-year-old point guard on their roster. The three alphas experiment featuring a Rondo, Dwyane Wade and Butler backcourt didn't go very well last season, so in terms of fantasy hoops, Rondo would be best served wearing a different jersey next season.

Rajon Rondo (right wrist, fractured right thumb) expects to be "100 percent recovered" by training camp. Rondo was diagnosed with a sprained right wrist in early April and seems to have suffered ligament damage, although neither his wrist nor thumb required surgery. Early indications are that Chicago will keep Rondo on the roster for 2017-18, even though his $13.4 million salary is only guaranteed for $3.0 million until Jun. 30.

VP of Basketball Operations John Paxson said that "there's a really good chance" Rajon Rondo will be on the Bulls' roster for the 2017-18 season. The Bulls will have until June 30 to buyout Rondo for $3 million, but for now, it looks as though they're committed to keeping him on the roster. It was an up-and-down season for Rondo, but he was a top-50 guy after the break when he put in averages of 10.3 points, 5.2 boards, 7.1 dimes, 1.8 steals, 1.1 triples and 2.4 turnovers per contest. It also helps that both Fred Hoiberg and Jimmy Butler had high praise for Rondo at the season's end. His outlook will improve if Dwyane Wade opts to leave as a free agent.

Coach Fred Hoiberg had high praise for Rajon Rondo on Friday. Hoiberg and Rondo had a rocky relationship for much of the season, but the coach gave a strong endorsement of his point guard after the Bulls were eliminated on Friday. "Obviously we played great basketball with Rajon toward the end of the season," Hoiberg said. "I love Rondo. I love coaching him. I love everything about the kid. He was so good to have out there on the floor." Jimmy Butler also stated he wants the Bulls to pick up Rondo's team option. "Of course," Butler said. "He's been huge for us this year."

Coach Fred Hoiberg said that Rajon Rondo (thumb) remains out for Game 6 Friday vs. Boston and is unlikely to play in a potential Game 7. Isaiah Canaan will draw another start on Friday. He is averaging 13.0 points and 1.5 assists in 35.1 minutes over the last two games. With Jimmy Butler bothered by a sore knee, Hoiberg may again have to ask Dwyane Wade, and even Paul Zipser, to bring the ball up at times.

Rajon Rondo (thumb) is listed as out for Game 6 against the Celtics on Friday. This isn't a surprise after Rondo said his thumb was still broken before Game 5. Assuming there are not any changes, Isaiah Canaan will look to build off his 35.0 minutes per game over his last two, scoring 13 points in each. Wade's time at the point has also gone way up, but the Bulls really need to get Jimmy Butler going.
