7 things to know about new Pelicans forward Julius Randle

Last year, his fourth in the Association, Randle averaged 16.1 points, 8.0 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 0.5 blocks and 0.5 steals per game for the Lakers.

The status of Julius Randle, who is a restricted free agent, appears in doubt.

Since signing James to a four-year, $153.3 million deal on Sunday, the Lakers have also reached agreements with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Lance Stephenson and JaVale McGee, according to ESPN reports.

According to Ramona Shelburne, Randle asked the Lakers to renounce his rights upon the Rondo signing once it became clear he would have a diminished role.

The Lakers have sought a veteran point guard to direct their offense for the better part of a year, after they traded D'Angelo Russell to the Brooklyn Nets on June 22, 2017. Player option second year.

The 32-year-old Rajon Rondo is expected to compete for position with Lakers young gun Lonzo Ball.

Rondo did have a memorable clash with another Lakers point guard when he and Isaiah Thomas got into a scuffle and were ejected, along with Walton, during a Valentine's Day meeting in New Orleans last season.

If you thought the biggest move of the National Basketball Association free agency period had already taken place, think again.

If recent Los Angeles Lakers rumors are true, Julius Randle's time with the Los Angeles Lakers has come to an end.

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. 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.

He has career averages of 13.5 points and 8.9 rebounds in 238 National Basketball Association games (182 starts).

With Randle's departure, the Lakers will have no players left on their roster who played with Kobe Bryant in his final game in 2016.
