Rajon Rondo signed his one-year, $3.3 million deal with the Pelicans. It's a fairly cheap deal on Rondo and it may have to do with how the Pelicans are willing to play him more minutes than most teams. Rondo is also going to get another $3 million to not play for the Bulls. He's expected to be used on two-PG lineups with Jrue Holiday, but Rondo isn't a player most fantasy owners should be targeting.

Coach Alvin Gentry said the plan going into next season is to start Rajon Rondo at point guard and Jrue Holiday at shooting guard. The Pelicans started both Tim Frazier and Holiday in the same backcourt frequently over the final month of the 2016-17 season, so Holiday has some experience playing off the ball. However, it will still be an adjustment for both Rondo and Holiday playing alongside each other. Nonetheless, this is good news for Rondo's fantasy value, as it means his playing time should be fairly steady and predictable. Rondo will rack up assists passing to Holiday, DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis.

Rajon Rondo has reached an agreement on a one-year deal with the New Orleans Pelicans. The Pelicans re-signed PG Jrue Holiday to a massive contract earlier this month, but clearly feel comfortable playing him off the ball at times. New Orleans doesn't have much depth at shooting guard, with E'Twaun Moore and Jordan Crawford as the only two options currently on the roster. Thus, it is possible Rondo and Holiday play significant minutes together in the same backcourt. It will be difficult to predict just how much playing time Rondo will see on a nightly basis until we get into training camp and the preseason.

The Pelicans are meeting with Rajon Rondo on Friday about a possible one-year deal, according to Zach Lowe of ESPN. Despite re-signing Jrue Holiday to a massive contract, New Orleans is still interested in adding another point guard this summer. It was reported earlier in the week they had conversations with the Pistons about trading for Reggie Jackson. It doesn't appear any team is willing to offer Rondo a multi-year deal, as he recently met with the Lakers about a one-year pact as well. The Pels believe Holiday can be successful playing off the ball, but both Jrue and Rondo's fantasy value might take a hit if they shared a backcourt.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Lakers are still hopeful of signing Rajon Rondo despite committing $18 million to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. Rondo met with Lakers' president Magic Johnson on Tuesday and should be considered the favorites to sign him. However, the Lakers can only offer a $4.3M exception, so it will be interesting to see if it's enough to bring him to Los Angeles. Rondo would likely come off the bench and be a mentor to rookie Lonzo Ball, so he wouldn't have much fantasy value with the Lakers.

Rajon Rondo reportedly met with Lakers' president Magic Johnson on Tuesday. With the Knicks using up most their cap space to sign Tim Hardaway Jr. and Ron Baker, they don't really have the money to offer Rondo anything more than the minimum, so he might be forced to take whatever deal the Lakers offer him with the point guard position filled on most teams around the league. Rondo would likely be asked to serve in a mentorship role to Lonzo Ball in Los Angeles, which would likely result in a value-killing timeshare situation, so not ideal for fantasy hoops.

According to ESPN's Ian Begley, there remains mutual interest between Rajon Rondo and the Knicks. The Knicks have less than $2 million in cap space and a $4.3 million exception to offer free agents after breaking the bank to bring back Tim Hardaway Jr., but they can always create more cap space via trade -- Carmelo Anthony, Courtney Lee and Joakim Noah have all been mentioned in trade rumors this summer. The Knicks are looking for a mentor for rookie Frank Ntilikina, and while Rondo is past his prime, Begley adds that young players in Sacramento and Chicago "raved about Rondo's mentorship and his ability to assist with player development."

According to Mark Medina of the Orange County Register, the Lakers are interested in Rajon Rondo. The Lakers primary concern is preserving cap space for the summer of 2018, when they plan to make a run at the top free agents available, including LeBron James, Paul George and DeMarcus Cousins, among others. Thus, L.A. will likely only offer one-year deals to players who were unable to secure longer contracts elsewhere. Thus, Rondo may be interested in a large, one-year pact, which would allow him to hit the free agent market again next July.

The Knicks have reached out to Rajon Rondo. Would the Knicks go with former Bulls point guards two years in a row? The point guard market is drying up and Rondo will likely wind up on a team that missed its priorities. He did play well in the postseason before injury, but he would only be a late-round pick in most formats.
