Is another former Cat headed to New Orleans?

Rajon Rondo is still on the free agency market, but according to one report today, he could be headed to New Orleans.

ESPN’s Zach Lowe is reporting that Rondo is meeting with Pelicans executives today in Louisville to discuss a one-year deal, which would reunite him with former Kings teammate DeMarcus Cousins. If the deal goes down, the Pelicans would have FOUR former Cats on the roster in Rondo, Cousins, Anthony Davis, and Darius Miller; if James Young makes the roster after the Summer League, they would have five, surpassing Phoenix as the team with the most Cats in the league.

Earlier this week, Rondo met with the Los Angeles Lakers, who are looking for a point guard to help mentor Lonzo Ball. Last season, Rondo averaged 7.8 points, 6.7 assists, and 5.1 rebounds for the Chicago Bulls.

Potentially five Cats on the Pelicans? Sounds like we need a KSR New Orleans branch.

    “New Lexington Pelicans” anyone?

    While I like Rondo, this move is potentially problematic. The adage, “cooler heads prevail”, will certainly need to take precedence for this potential deal to work and pay dividends for the Pelicans

      At least Rondo won’t be expected to really be a leader on that team. The Brow is and will continue to be the leader of that team, which will hopefully mitigate some of Boogie and Rondo’s behavioral problems.
