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


On Monday, Randle agreed to a two-year, $18 million deal with the New Orleans Pelicans, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Randle asked to have his rights renounced instead of taking on a reduced role with the Lakers, according to Wojnarowski. Sources said Pelicans star (and fellow Kentucky alum) Anthony Davis was key in recruiting Randle to agree on the deal that also features a player option for the second year. He spent 2017-2018 with the New Orleans Pelicans and averaged 8.3 points and 8.2 assists per game during the regular season. As it turns out, the answer was letting him go for nothing, as the Lakers renounced the young forward and let him become an unrestricted free agent.

Rondo was excellent in the playoffs as the Pelicans swept the Portland Trail Blazers in the first-round of the Western Conference playoffs.

Julius Randle's Los Angeles Lakers career is over after four seasons.

He will join a locker room filled with characters, as the Lakers also agreed to deals with JaVale McGee and Lance Stephenson.

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.

The problem with the signings of Stephenson, McGree, and Rondo is that none of the players are particularly good, and the Lakers ate up valuable cap space to add them.
