AP source: Rajon Rondo goes to Chicago for 2 years, $30M

A person with knowledge of the negotiations tells The Associated Press that Rajon Rondo is going to the Chicago Bulls, agreeing on a $30 million, two-year deal.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Sunday because no deal can be signed until the league’s offseason moratorium ends on Thursday.

Rondo essentially becomes the Bulls’ replacement at point guard for Derrick Rose, the former NBA MVP who was traded to the New York Knicks last month.

Chicago becomes Rondo’s fourth team in less than two years. He spent his first eight full NBA seasons in Boston, winning a championship with the Celtics in 2008. The Celtics traded him to Dallas in December 2014, and Rondo spent last season in Sacramento.
