The Pelicans did not now have a traditional backup point guard after trading Tim Frazier to the Washington Wizards for a second-round pick.

Free agent Rajon Rondo has reached agreement on a one-year deal with the New Orleans Pelicans, league sources tell The Vertical.

According to ESPN sources, the Pelicans' contingent included general manager Dell Demps and coach Alvin Gentry. The sides are said to be working on a one-year deal.

Even though New Orleans just re-signed point guard Jrue Holiday to a five-year, $126 million guaranteed deal, the Pelicans reportedly are interested in having Rondo fill a backup role to give Holiday more rest during the season.

Rondo was notably traded to the Dallas Mavericks midway through the 2014-15 campaign while then going on to play for both the Sacramento Kings and Chicago Bulls along the way.
