LeBron effect: Rajon Rondo jumps to Lakers

LeBron effect: Rajon Rondo jumps to Lakers

They also re-signed two-way shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to a one-year, $12 million deal.

Last year, at age 23, Randle averaged 16.1 points and eight rebounds per game. Randle was previously informed that if he returned to the Lakers, his role would be "dramatically different" than it was last season, per ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.

A Randle-Davis pairing will work similar to the Cousins-Davis pairing last season.

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.

A person with knowledge of the situation said Monday that Rondo has agreed to sign a one-year contract with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Pelicans lost Rajon Rondo to the Lakers earlier on Monday.

Rajon Rondo isn't coming to Los Angeles to watch LeBron James play from afar.

By adding Rondo, the Lakers got a skilled ball handler and great defender who is not known as a great perimeter shooter.

The Los Angeles Lakers roster is starting to look very different than it did less than 24 hours ago. He also played for the Celtics when the Lakers won the 2009-10 championship over Boston in seven.

If you thought the biggest move of the National Basketball Association free agency period had already taken place, think again. The Lakers did not reach the playoffs during his four seasons.

With rumors still swarming around Pelicans' free agent DeMarcus Cousins, he has not made a decision as to where he will play next season. Randle was the seventh overall pick of the 2014 draft out of Kentucky.
