Lakers Sign Rondo, Lose Randle In Flurry Of Free Agency Moves

LaVar Ball told everyone Le Bron James was going to Lakers

He'll join new Laker additions James, JaVale McGee and Lance Stephenson.

The Lakers' locker room is going to be fascinating.

With the Lakers drafting 7-foot MI center Mo Wagner in addition to bringing in James, Randle was likely to find his role further reduced on a revamped Lakers team.

And then there's "March 14", the closing track, which is a long and inward-looking verse about becoming a father. But while he rushed out to buy a crib for the tot, Drake has only met his son once at Christmas time.

With Rondo and Ball both being point guards, the Lakers told Rondo the team is trying to win now and the best man would play, a source told Shelburne. Thomas became an unrestricted free agent Saturday. Randle is more of a ball-handler and off-the-dribble threat.

The status of Julius Randle, who is a restricted free agent, appears in doubt. The free-agent class of 2019 is projected to be deeper and more talented than this one (Kawhi Leonard, Jimmy Butler, Klay Thompson, Karl-Anthony Towns and possibly Kevin Durant if he opts out of his existing deal), with the exception of James, of course. 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.

While it is hard to part with Randle, Los Angeles has been linked to Kawhi Leonard, who has requested a trade from the San Antonio Spurs. A LeBron-Boogie duo on the Lakers would surely be fun to watch.

Randle only played 14 minutes during his rookie season because of a broken right leg he suffered in the fourth quarter against the Houston Rockets on opening night. They drafted him seventh overall in 2014, the first of their four consecutive lottery picks.

Randle averaged a career-high 16.1 points while also averaging 8.0 rebounds last season, playing in all 82 games.

"Julius Randle has made it clear that I don't think he really wants to be back there, so are you putting money into a guy that doesn't really want to be back there", Aldridge reported per Silver Screen and Roll.
