NBA Free Agent Rumors: Julius Randle Agrees To Contract With Pelicans

Julius Randle Le Bron James

The latest star to sign with the team in less than 24 hours of LeBron's announcement is Rajon Rondo.

Randle, who just finished his fourth season in Los Angeles, was a restricted free agent this summer, meaning the Lakers had the opportunity to match any offer he received. The unrestricted free agent agreed to the deal a day after free agent LeBron James chose to bolt from the Cleveland Cavaliers in order to join the Lakers.

Rondo is on his sixth team since the 2014-15 season and has often been disengaged on the court, accused of assist-hunting, and his defense is mostly overrated.

Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio . "I love that issue if they're going to actually do that". This is a stunning & unsurprising indictment of Trump's claimed objective behind the crackdown on "illegal immigration".

As it relates to Randle, ESPN's Wojnarowski reported all-NBA Pelicans forward Anthony Davis played a large part in the recruitment.

The Pelicans were hoping to bring Rondo back after the leadership he brought to the team in 2017-18. They may simply be adding veteran players to surround a core of James and young talent to fill out the roster. Los Angeles has renounced Julius Randle, making him an unrestricted free agent. The 20-year-old point guard averaged 10.2 points and 7.2 assists per game in his rookie season. They also could waive him and stretch his contract in order to lessen their salary cap burden.

The deal will be for one year worth $9 million. 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.
