  • Rajon Rondo

Last year, his fourth in the Association, Randle averaged 16.1 points, 8.0 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 0.5 blocks and 0.5 steals per game for the Lakers.

The Lakers originally gave him a qualifying offer, which made Randle a restricted free agent. The four-time All-Star and three-time National Basketball Association assist leader will follow JaVale McGee, Lance Stephenson, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and, of course, James among the Lakers' new recruits.

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

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. Player option second year.

With the Lakers drafting 7-foot MI center Mo Wagner in addition to bringing in James, Randle was likely to find his role further reduced on a revamped Lakers team.

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.




By adding Rondo, the Lakers got a skilled ball handler and great defender who is not known as a great perimeter shooter.

If you thought the biggest move of the National Basketball Association free agency period had already taken place, think again.

LeBron James' decision to join the Lakers marked an excellent start to Magic Johnson's plan to turn Los Angeles into a contender. He also has played for the Boston Celtics, Dallas Mavericks, Sacramento Kings and Chicago Bulls. They also could waive him and stretch his contract in order to lessen their salary cap burden.

DeMarcus Cousins has been mentioned as a possibility for the Lakers, who might be interested in bringing him in.

He has career averages of 13.5 points and 8.9 rebounds in 238 National Basketball Association games (182 starts).

Randle was drafted No. 7 overall in the 2014 NBA Draft by the Lakers and has played every season of his professional career in Hollywood. Brandon Ingram, 20, is now the longest-tenured Lakers player, having played a grand total of 138 games over two seasons since he was drafted out of Duke in 2016.
