Rajon Rondo Signs with the Chicago Bulls

Former Kentucky point guard Rajon Rondo has signed with the Chicago Bulls for the next two seasons.

Rondo has signed a two-year, $28 million dollar deal with Chicago.

Last season, he averaged 11.7 points, 11.7 assists and 6.0 rebounds per game for the Kings.

Here's more from the Chicago Tribune:

Rondo has clearly overcome a torn ACL in January 2013. In addition to the 11.7 assists, he averaged 11.7 points and six rebounds for the Kings last season while posting 37 double-doubles and six triple-doubles. As an aside, three Bulls offseason acquisitions — Rondo, Valentine and Paul Zipser — have had knee surgeries.

Rondo's strong season with the Kings on a one-year, make-good deal also saw him shoot a career high 36.5 percent from 3-point range and outshoot Derrick Rose from all ranges: inside the arc, outside the arc and inside the restricted area.

And he's a pass-first pure point guard and strong rebounder for his position who owns career averages of 11 points, 8.7 assists and 4.8 rebounds over 10 seasons.
