Reports: Rajon Rondo, Bulls agree to two-year, $28 million deal
The Chicago Bulls and free-agent point guard Rajon Rondo have agreed to a two-year deal worth $28 million, ESPN’s Marc Spears reports.
According to USA Today’s Sam Amick, the deal is fully-guaranteed in the first year, and partially guaranteed in the next, with no options.
Rondo, 30, played last season for the rebuilding Sacramento Kings, averaging 11.9 points, 11.7 assists and 6.0 rebounds in 35.2 minutes per game. He spent the first eight years of his career with the Celtics before leaving mid-way through the 2014–15 season to join the Mavericks. There, he played 46 games and fell out of favor with head coach Rick Carlisle.
The Bulls recently traded away starting point guard Derrick Rose to the New York Knicks, lost center Joakim Noah in free agency, and dealt away backup point guard Kirk Hinrich to the Hawks in February.
