Rajon Rondo Signs With New Orleans
Free agent point guard, Rajon Rondo has signed with the New Orleans Pelicans. This is a great pickup for the Pels. They already have Jrue Holiday as their starting point guard, so it’s kind of a luxury to have a guy like Rajon coming off the bench.
Even though he doesn’t put up the greatest numbers, Rondo has an unquestioned impact on the floor. He knows how to run an offence and is one of the best players at getting guys involved and setting them up.
The only question is if accept the role of coming off the bench. He does still have issues with spacing the floor, but since Ad and Cousins can both shoot, it shouldn’t matter as much.
Jonathan Simmons Headed To Magic
The San Antonio Spurs let Simmons become an unrestricted free agent. So, he’s parted with the Spurs and signed with the Orlando Magic.
Simmons became quite an important piece for the Spurs last season. They did add Rudy Gay but he’s coming off an achillies tear so no one knows what he’s going to give them. Only time will tell if the Spurs are going to miss Simmons.
