The Chicago Bulls have a new point guard, and he’s a very proven one as well. Rajon Rondo has come to an agreement with the Bulls on a two-year deal worth $28 million.
The 30-year old averaged 11.9 points to go with a league leading 11.7 assists per game last season for the Kings. His style of play will work great with Jimmy Butler, who emerged as the Bulls new go-to-guy over the past two years. Via Yahoo Sports:
Rajon Rondo has a new beginning in Chicago, and the Bulls have a new starting point guard.
The four-time All-Star agreed Sunday on a $30 million, two-year deal, a person with knowledge of the negotiations told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no deal can be signed until the league’s offseason moratorium ends on Thursday.
Rondo becomes the Bulls’ replacement at point guard for Derrick Rose, the former NBA MVP who was traded to the New York Knicks last month.
