The Pelicans picked up a possible starting point guard when they reached agreement on a one-year deal with Rajon Rondo.

The Pelicans' interest in Rondo, an unrestricted free agent, comes amid potential competition from the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers.

Rajon Rondo is making his way to New Orleans. The meeting reportedly went well and the two sides could begin contract discussions as early as Thursday.

The 31-year-old veteran agreed to a one-year deal to join his fifth team, following a lone season with the Chicago Bulls.

Rondo was a four-time All-Star and won a championship with the Boston Celtics.

He finished the season averaging 7.8 points, 5.1 rebounds, 6.7 assists and 1.4 steals per game.

After an uneven tenure with Dallas, he teamed with current Pelican DeMarcus Cousins in Sacramento before signing with the Bulls last season.

The Bulls found a way to make the playoffs as the eighth seed and were up 2-0 against the Boston Celtics in the first round.

Rondo is not always quick to pass the ball, so that will be an adjustment, though he did play well with Cousins before. But Rondo missed the rest of that series with a broken thumb.

Despite his bumpy 2016-17 season, Rondo remains one of only three players to average at least six assists the past nine seasons.

Rondo averaged 7.8 points and 6.7 assists past year with the Bulls, marks that were significantly lower than his career averages of 10.7 points and 8.5 assists.
