Julius Randle Inks Two-Year, $18 Million Deal With Pelicans

Point guard Rajon Rondo

With the Randle signing in NOLA, and with what little cap room remains for the Lakers, it is entirely plausible that Cousins signs a one-year deal with the Lakers to join James. He averaged a career-high 16.1 points past year to go with 8 rebounds per game.

Julius Randle will not be back with the Lakers.

First, they renounced the rights to power forward Julius Randle, a story broken by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Ball reportedly suffered torn meniscus in his left knee near the end of last season, but he is expected to be sound when training camp begins in September.

Rondo is coming off a stellar season with the Pelicans and showed that he can easily play side-by-side with another point guard, Jrue Holiday. Players and teams are free to negotiate and agree on new contracts, but they can't officially sign them until Friday morning PT.

Rajon Rondo is teaming up with LeBron James.

With Rondo and Ball both being point guards, the Lakers told Rondo the team is trying to win now and the best man would play, a source told Shelburne. Randle is more of a ball-handler and off-the-dribble threat. The Lakers qualifying offer made Randle a restricted free agent, meaning the Lakers could match any offer.

The Los Angeles Lakers are signing veteran point guard Rajon Rondo.

DeMarcus Cousins has been mentioned as a possibility for the Lakers, who might be interested in bringing him in. The Lakers did not reach the playoffs during his four seasons.

By renouncing their rights to Randle, the Lakers parted ways with their longest-tenured player. He was the No. 7 overall draft pick out of Kentucky in 2014 but played in only one game his rookie season before breaking a leg. He had averages of 16.1 points, and 8.0 rebounds, per game.
