Rondo spent this past season with the New Orleans Pelicans and built up his value. In 65 regular season games, Rondo averaged 8.3 points, 4.0 rebounds and 8.2 assists, shooting 46.8 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from three.
During the playoffs, Rondo took his game to another level. He posted 10.3 points, 7.6 rebounds and 12.2 assists per game and helped the Pelicans sweep the Portland Trail Blazers in the first-round.
The Pelicans signed Elfrid Payton on Sunday, making Rondo’s return to New Orleans unlikely.
Rajon Rondo has no assurances that he'll start over Lonzo Ball, but it's entirely possible: "Best man plays," I'm told.
