Julius Randle Remains Hopeful Of Receiving Offer From Lakers

Tuesday, 03 Jul, 2018

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).

Next up, Los Angeles had to figure out what to do with its biggest restricted free agent: Julius Randle.

Free agent Julius Randle has agreed to a two-year, $18M deal with New Orleans, league sources tell ESPN.

By adding Rondo, the Lakers got a skilled ball handler and great defender who is not known as a great perimeter shooter. The Lakers added Rondo's quick hands and length, Stephenson's aggressive defense, McGee's length and shot-blocking ability and brought back one of their best defenders from past year in Caldwell-Pope.

National Basketball Association insider Adrian Wojnarowski first reported the news. By signing Randle, it would appear that DeMarcus Cousins' time in New Orleans is through. The Lakers did not reach the playoffs during his four seasons. He averaged 8.3 points, 8.2 assists and 4.0 rebounds in 65 games for New Orleans last season. 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.

The deal will be for one year worth $9 million.

Randle averaged 16.1 points and eight rebounds in 2017-18.

It's unclear what the market is like for Randle, who starred collegiately at Kentucky. It includes a player option on the second year, which can allow Randle, 23, to return into unrestricted free agency in a much looser financial market in 2019.
