  • The Lakers Signed Rajon Rondo To A $9 Million Contract And Renounced The Rights To Julius Randle

Last year, the 32-year-old Rondo averaged 8.3 points and 8.2 assists in 65 games with the Pelicans. Once the Lakers began signing Lance Stephenson and JaVale McGee on Sunday night, Randle saw the writing on the wall in Los Angeles.

ESPN, which first reported the agreement, said Rondo will make $9 million.

The young power forward played extremely well in 2017-18 and likely could've been a good fit next to LeBron James. Player option second year. The Lakers become Rondo's sixth team.

"I'm going to try and do something like that, but I don't think I'm going to be so specific". Gorsuch was the youngest nominee since Clarence Thomas, who was 43 when confirmed in 1991.

LeBron James is getting more and more new teammates by the day, with the latest reportedly being Rajon Rondo. The Lakers qualifying offer made Randle a restricted free agent, meaning the Lakers could match any offer. He also has played for the Boston Celtics, Dallas Mavericks, Sacramento Kings and Chicago Bulls. That cap space could increase to $16 million if the team uses the waive-and-stretch provision on Luol Deng, which would stretch out the $36 million owed to him over five seasons.

ESPN is reporting that DeMarcus "Boogie" Cousins, one the best big men in the game is joining the reigning champion Golden State Warriors.

By renouncing their rights to Randle, the Lakers parted ways with their longest-tenured player. His progress was slow and unsteady in his first three seasons in the National Basketball Association (he missed his entire rookie season after breaking his leg in the season opener), but he made significant strides in 2017-18, when he averaged 16.1 points and 8 rebounds. Prior to James' arrival, Turner Sports' David Aldridge reported that Randle was not interested in remaining in Los Angeles, which selected him with the seventh pick out of Kentucky in the 2014 National Basketball Association draft.
