Julius Randle Remains Hopeful Of Receiving Offer From Lakers

  • Lakers add Rajon Rondo surprise to fascinating roster

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. He had averages of 16.1 points, and 8.0 rebounds, per game.

The move comes on the heels of an agreement between the Lakers and LeBron James as well as point guard Rajon Rondo.

The Lakers have renounced Julius Randle, added Lance Stephenson, JaVale McGee and re-signed Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

Randle played in all 82 of L.A.'s games a year ago.

Despite losing Randle's defensive abilities, the Lakers have managed to upgrade their defense in the past 48 hours. And he expects LeBron James to be better than great for the Lakers. James told Los Angeles executives this week he likes Ball's game and "is excited to play with him", according to ESPN.




Rondo considered remaining with the Pelicans before accepting the Lakers' offer.

With a stellar rookie season behind him, Lonzo was looking to easily be the starting point guard for the Lakers. Rondo gives the Lakers experience at point guard, where the Lakers relied on Ball, and even Ingram when Ball was injured.

Cousins was in line for a max deal last season until he tore his achilles tendon while playing for the New Orleans Pelicans.

Information from ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk, Ramona Shelburne and Bobby Marks was used in this report.
