Julius Randle agrees to two-year deal with New Orleans Pelicans


Randle averaged 16.1 points, eight rebounds, and 2.6 assists in all 82 games with the Lakers last season. Randle's wife, Kendra, broke the news via Twitter.

Heading into free agency one of the more compelling storylines the Los Angeles Lakers faced was with Julius Randle. The Lakers will be his fifth team in as many seasons.

It's possible these signings, while head-scratching now, have a larger goal - future trade chips or cheap, available backup options when the Lakers make a big trade.

The Lakers added Rondo's quick hands and length, Stephenson's aggressive defense, McGee's length and shot-blocking ability and brought back one of their best defenders from previous year in Caldwell-Pope. The Lakers reached a one-year, $9 million deal with the 32-year-old point guard.

Mr Jadwat likened the Court's decision to the ruling which upheld Japanese-American internment during World War Two. The Supreme Court allowed it to go largely into effect in December while the legal challenge continued.

The Lakers could create additional cap space this summer by trading Luol Deng and his $18 million salary for the next two seasons, but partners would seem to be scarce. Randle would have cost a lot, unless they were able to get him to agree to a big one-year deal. A LeBron-Boogie duo on the Lakers would surely be fun to watch.

Now Rondo could potentially serve as a terrific mentor for Ball, who averaged 10.2 points, 7.2 assists and 6.9 rebounds as a rookie, but shot just 36 percent overall and 30.5 percent from 3-point range.
