Rondo is coming off a one-year stint in Sacramento, where he averaged a double double in the form of 11.9 points and 11.7 assists per game. He’s a ready-made Rose replacement for a Bulls team that doesn’t appear willing to commit to a full rebuild. A backcourt pairing of Rondo and Jimmy Butler is dynamic and talented, but one wonders how they’ll both get enough touches to be successful and happy.
