Julius Randle Remains Hopeful Of Receiving Offer From Lakers

DeMarcus Cousins is joining the Golden State Warriors in a shock free-agency move DeMarcus Cousins is joining the Golden State Warriors in a shock free-agency move

The Lakers outbid the New Orleans Pelicans to snare Rondo and created more salary-cap flexibility by renouncing Randle, who quickly came to a two-year, $18 million deal with New Orleans, according to league sources. Randle's wife, Kendra, broke the news via Twitter.

Rondo's deal comes a day after the Lakers landed LeBron James in free agency.

Rondo is coming off a stellar season with the Pelicans and showed that he can easily play side-by-side with another point guard, Jrue Holiday.

The Lakers also added versatility with James, Rondo and Stephenson all triple-double threats on any given night. The point guard is the latest National Basketball Association star to join the team in the wake of LeBron joining the Lakers, who have also added Lance Stephenson and JaVale McGee. 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. By signing Randle, it would appear that DeMarcus Cousins' time in New Orleans is through.

However, with a minimum of effort, the Lakers could have a max deal available to lure top-tier free agents next summer. Would this be a precursor to a trade that ends up with Kawhi Leonard in Los Angeles? The Lakers did not reach the playoffs during his four seasons. Not only are there questions surrounding how he will return from the achilles he tore in January, but analysts have also waffled on what type of contract they expect him to sign.

Deng's $36 million salary would then be paid out over five seasons. They signed Elfrid Payton to a one-year deal, but are likely still in the market for a point guard given Payton's limitations. A LeBron-Boogie duo on the Lakers would surely be fun to watch.

The former seventh overall pick would join a frontcourt rotation that includes All-NBA big man Anthony Davis and Nikola Mirotic.
