Report: Rondo joins Pelicans on one-year deal

Rajon Rondo has agreed to a one-year deal with the New Orleans Pelicans, per Shams Charania of The Vertical.

Jrue Holliday likely will be New Orleans' starting point guard after signing a five-year, $126 million deal this summer, but Rondo gives the team some much-needed backcourt depth.

The Lakers also reportedly were in the running to sign the ex-Celtics guard.

Rondo and Pelicans star center DeMarcus Cousins were teammates during the 2015-16 season with the Sacramento Kings.

Isaiah Thomas appears to be channeling the New England Patriots' "No days off" slogan.

The Boston Celtics guard spent Friday night, in the middle of the NBA offseason, studying film. He was up past midnight to take a look at Boston Celtics' game tape, according to ESPN.com's Chris Foresberg, who posted a picture on Twitter of Thomas hard at work.

Thomas finished the 2016-17 season with 28.9 points per game, 5.9 assists and 2.7 rebounds in 33.8 minutes. He helped the Celtics earn the NBA Eastern Conference's No. 1 seed, and contributed a handful of clutch performances as Boston charged to the Eastern Conference finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers, who won the series, 4-1.
