Nba free agency has been frenetic to say the least. Teams are stacking the deck to compete with Golden State and basically changing the landscape of the league. In a league where small ball rules, one team has gone against the grain and may have found the piece to make them a legitimate dark horse in the unpedictably stack west. The team was the Pelicans and the signing was Rajon Rondo.
Rajon Rondo has all the entangibles of a solid floor general. He gets the most out of bigmen and The Pelicans have the best two bigs in the game. Expect Rondo to take advantage of the nightly mismatches Cousins and Davis will have all season long. Also, Rondo is known to show up in big games and the playoffs. If he can lead them to the playoffs an upset may be on the horizon.
