Ex-Lakers center Julius Randle joining Pelicans on 2-year, $18M deal

Point guard Rajon Rondo

While the Lakers have plenty of young talent, the team made a decision to add some veteran reinforcements in the form of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Lance Stephenson, and JaVale McGee.

Fiesty guard Rajon Rondo is heading to the LA Lakers. The Lakers will be his fifth team in as many seasons.

Randle is a restricted free agent and is hopeful of receiving a potential offer from the Lakers. Unless Ball is traded away, he would most likely be demoted to a bench role with fellow youngsters Josh Hart and Moe Wagner. The 6-foot-9 forward averaged a career-high 16.1 points to go with 8.0 rebounds last season.

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 four-time All-Star played eight-plus seasons in Boston and won an National Basketball Association championship with the Celtics but has been a journeyman of late, spending time with Dallas, Sacramento, Chicago and New Orleans in the past four seasons. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski was the first to report the news.

Spieth and Johnson tied for early PGA lead
Watson jump started his round with an eagle on his third hole, the par-5 13th. He hit 12 of the 14 fairways and only missed three greens.

The Lakers also renounced the rights to forward Julius Randle, who will become an unrestricted free agent, league sources told Wojnarowski. Los Angeles can be patient, get the trade they want or add the free agents next summer, and in the meantime see which of their young core fits with that.

The Laker experiment this season is going to be fascinating to watch. They also could waive him and stretch his contract in order to lessen their salary cap burden. A LeBron-Boogie duo on the Lakers would surely be fun to watch.

Julius Randle will not be back with the Lakers.

Now Rondo could potentially serve as a terrific mentor for Ball, who averaged 10.2 points, 7.2 assists and 6.9 rebounds as a rookie, but shot just 36 percent overall and 30.5 percent from 3-point range.
