NBA Free Agency Rumors: Rajon Rondo agrees to two-year deal with Bulls

Rajon Rondo on Kings: 'There Were Too Many Distractions on and off the Court'

Rajon Rondo entered free agency as one of the top point guards available, especially after Mike Conley re-signed with the Memphis Grizzlies. After trading point guard Derrick Rose to the New York Knicks, the Chicago Bulls were in the market for a point guard.

According to Marc Spears of ESPN, the Bulls have filled that hole by signing Rondo to a two-year deal worth $28 million, though others are reporting $30 million.

The Bulls had an obvious need at point guard with the departure of Rose. They've emerged with a solid point guard in Rondo who is a proven winner. Rondo rebuilt his value as one of the league's top point guards with the Sacramento Kings, leading the league in assists per game with 11.7. He has now led the league in assists three times. Rondo also averaged 11.9 points per game with the Kings and he's a versatile point guard who is adept at passing and scoring.

Filling Rose's shoes will be a very tall task to ask from Rondo, but he has the skill set necessary to do so. While he is not as dynamic or athletic as Rose, Rondo will bring a veteran presence and his basketball IQ. Over his career, he has a PER of 16.7. Even at his worst, he's proven that he can be an average player. The Bulls have potentially saved their offseason by grabbing one of the few point guards who can replace Rose in Rondo.
