With Derrick Rose now rocking the blue and orange for the New York Knicks, the Chicago Bulls were left with a void at the point guard position. That void has been filled with former Wildcat, Rajon Rondo.
The Bulls signed the four time NBA Allstar to a 2-year, $28 million deal to join budding star Jimmy Butler in the Chicago backcourt. Getting out of the chaos that is the Sacramento Kings organization should be good for Rondo, who has his share of issues with coaches throughout his career. Last season, Rondo averaged 11.9 points, a career high tying 11.7 assists, 6 rebounds and two steals per game last season for the Kings.
ESPN’s Marc Spears spoke to Rondo just after the news broke and the point guard is pumped up about the move.

Good for Rajon Rondo and hopefully he finds a home in Chicago.
