Rajon Rondo

According to Ian Begley of ESPN, those close to the New York Knicks believe the team is determined to sign a veteran point guard to mentor rookie Frank Ntilikina. There is no consensus on a possible Derrick Rose return.

Two guys the Knicks previously expressed interest in – George Hill and Darren Collison – have already been picked up; so they have set their sights on a couple of new targets, including 31-year-old Rajon Rondo.

During the 2017 playoffs, Rondo helped the No. 8 seeded Bulls jump out to a 2-0 series lead over the No. 1 seeded Celtics before suffering a thumb injury, averaging 11.5 points, 10.0 assists, and 8.5 rebounds per contest.

New York has reportedly also been in contact with the Boston Celtics about a possible Marcus Smart trade. Stay tuned for more updates.
