We can all breathe again: Rondo to sign with Bulls
The Rajon Rondo experiment is finally over. The enigmatic veteran point guard has agreed to a 2-year $28 million offer by the Chicago Bulls, thus ending the worries of fearful Kings fans that he might be back in Sacramento next season.
While Rondo put up very impressive numbers during his lone season with the Kings, they felt a little empty as that team struggled mightily defensively and only a select few players seemed to thrive under his direction.
With the now assumed promotion of Darren Collison to the starting role, the addition of Garrett Temple as his backup and the drafting of Oklahoma’s Isaiah Cousins in June, the Kings should be able to hold their own at the 1 spot this upcoming season. The plan is still to find a top-tier point guard next summer as a long-term solution though.
