Rajon Rondo agrees one-year, $9 million with LA

Adjust Comment Print

The 23-year-old forward agreed to a two-year, $18 million contract with the Pelicans on Monday, according to a report from ESPN.

With the Lakers not offering a long-term contract extension to Randle prior to the deadline past year, they were attempting to preserve cap space for 2018 and 2019 free agency.

Hours after the Lakers rescinded their qualifying offer and made him an unrestricted free agent, Julius Randle is reportedly set to join the New Orleans Pelicans.

Fiesty guard Rajon Rondo is heading to the LA Lakers. A player option in the second year is included. Thomas became an unrestricted free agent Saturday.

Sure, Lebron James heading to the LA Lakers is huge news but the Golden State Warriors have managed to spoil the party by announcing a massive signing of their own.

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.

But going to LA doesn't necessarily provide any hint about his team for next season, since James has homes in Southern California. CLINT CAPELA LATEST The Rockets front office will meet with Clint Capela and his agents in Los Angeles on Sunday, ESPN reported.

A day after its bombshell signing of LeBron James, Los Angeles agreed to a one-year deal with Rajon Rondo, ESPN reported on Tuesday (AEST).

It's unclear what Rondo's addition means for point guard Lonzo Ball, who started 50 of 52 games for the Lakers last season as a rookie.

In his one year with the Pelicans, Rondo averaged 8.3 points and 8.2 assists per game in the regular season, and excelled in the playoffs with 10.3 PPG and 12.2 APG. He averaged a career-high 16.1 points and 8.0 rebounds while being a key cog in coach Luke Walton's defense as a big man who could play against multiple positions.

In 12 National Basketball Association seasons, Rondo has career averages of 10.5 points, 8.5 assists and 4.8 rebounds.
