A little over a month ago, Sacramento Kings guard Rajon Rondo dismissed the Triangle Offense as not being “a good look” for him, but he walked back those remarks over the weekend prior to facing the New York Knicks.
Rondo says he can thrive in any system, and took a shot at former Knicks head coach Derek Fisher after he claimed the veteran guard hadn’t succeeded against the famed offense in the past.
Rondo on Fisher saying he wasn't successful vs. the triangle: "He might have blacked out a couple of times (when) we beat their a– in '08."

The 30-year-old will be an unrestricted free agent this summer.
Per the NY Post:
“I had a comment earlier about it, but if I put my mind at it, I think I can be good at anything,” Rondo said. […] The free-agent-to-be surely will be a target of the Knicks this summer to fill a point guard position that has been a black hole since Jason Kidd manned it in a 54-win campaign during the 2012-13 season. Not surprisingly, it was also the last time the Knicks qualified for the playoffs.
Rondo signed a one-year, $9 million deal with the Kings last year in attempt to revive his career, and he has done just that. The 30-year-old is averaging 11.7 points and a career-high 11.8 assists per game and has made it known he loves to play at Madison Square Garden. […] “It’s one of those arenas,” Rondo said. “That’s the biggest lights. It’s Broadway … Madison Square Garden is the mecca of basketball, so it’s always great going there and perform in front of a lot of fans.”
Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony has openly lobbied for and welcomed the idea of adding Rondo for next season. […] “We have a lot of respect for each other,” Rondo said of Anthony. “He competes every night and plays extremely hard and I think I do the same.”
