Free agent point guard Rajon Rondo is slated to meet with the New Orleans Pelicans in his native Louisville in talks for a potential one-year deal, according to ESPN's Zach Lowe.

The Pelicans can see Rondo and point guard Jrue Holiday playing together in the backcourt, giving some real traction to this possible deal, according to Lowe and Adrian Wojnarowski.

Rondo could be potentially also be a part of a three-team trade to send him to the New York Knicks, with hopes of shedding Carmelo Anthony's contract and shipping him westward to the Houston Rockets to play alongside Chris Paul and James Harden.

The 6-foot-1 floor general followed a stellar season with the Sacramento Kings with a rather deflating season with the Chicago Bulls, who waived him at the end of last month.

If he lands with the Pelicans, he could make this a reunion episode with one of his favorite lob and pocket-pass targets in the sure-handed DeMarcus Cousins.

If Rondo could fit into a New Orleans offense, he could regain the form that saw him lead the league in assists, with incredible play-finishers in Cousins and Anthony Davis and a reliable outside shooter like Holiday — but his acquisition could be more than meets the eye if the team engages in trade talks following his addition.
