  • Julius Randle

The latest: Former Boston Celtics star Rajon Rondo has signed a one year, $9 million deal, according to multiple reports. 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.

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.

Deng's $36 million salary would then be paid out over five seasons.

For the season in New Orleans, he averaged 8.3 points, 8.2 assists and four rebounds. That announcement was quickly followed by agreements by Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Lance Stephenson and JaVale McGee to play for the Lakers, sources told ESPN's Chris Haynes.

Despite losing Randle's defensive abilities, the Lakers have managed to upgrade their defense in the past 48 hours.

The Dallas Mavericks, once considered the Lakers' biggest threat for Randle, focused in on DeAndre Jordan prior to and after the center opted out of the final year of his contract.

Rajon Rondo will be wearing Forum blue and gold.

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

With Rondo as a pass-first point guard without much of a shot, he's a sensible back-up to Lonzo Ball, unless he beats out LaVar Ball's son for the job. The two did not play together at Kentucky, but both played their college ball under John Calipari.
