Julius Randle, Pelicans Agree to Contract After 4 Seasons with Lakers

A person with knowledge of the situation says Rondo has agreed to sign a one-year contract with the Los Angeles Lakers. As expected, they extended him the qualifying offer to make Randle a restricted free agent. The two-time National Basketball Association champion with the Golden State Warriors is going to be part of the revamping by the Los Angeles Lakers, agreeing to a one-year deal worth just under $2.4 million, according to a person familiar with the negotiations. Randle is more of a ball-handler and off-the-dribble threat.

The 32-year-old most recently played for the New Orleans Pelicans and has proven to been one of the best passing point guards of his generation.

Fiesty guard Rajon Rondo is heading to the LA Lakers. After all their moves Sunday and Monday, the Lakers have $5.6 million left under the salary cap, which could rule out another big free-agent signing.

In his one year with the Pelicans, Rondo averaged 8.3 points and 8.2 assists per game in the regular season, and excelled in the playoffs with 10.3 PPG and 12.2 APG. They drafted him seventh overall in 2014, the first of their four consecutive lottery picks.

Both Davis and Randle played collegiately at Kentucky, and the Pelicans have made it a habit over the past few years to add former Wildcats to the roster. It includes a player option on the second year, which can allow Randle, 23, to return into unrestricted free agency in a much looser financial market in 2019.
