Julius Randle, Pelicans agree to two-year, $18 million deal

  • DeMarcus Cousins

Los Angeles has also re-signed Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and added Lance Stephenson, Rajon Rondo as well as JaVale McGee to its roster, in addition to James, this offseason.

With free agency just one day in, the Los Angeles Lakers are clearly not done dealing.

Randle was set to be a restricted free agent. Unless Ball is traded away, he would most likely be demoted to a bench role with fellow youngsters Josh Hart and Moe Wagner. 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 previous year in Caldwell-Pope.

Cousins was in line for a max deal last season until he tore his achilles tendon while playing for the New Orleans Pelicans.

The company said it will help keep start-up costs to about $10,000 by offering discounts on vehicles, fuel and insurance coverage. A year ago it introduced Amazon Flex , which allows independent drivers to pick up shifts delivering packages around town.

He helped the team make it to the NBA Finals in 2008, when they won the NBA Championship.

Rondo averaged 8.3 points and 8.2 assists per game in his one season in New Orleans, helping the Pelicans to the Western Conference semifinals.

Rondo is coming off a stellar season with the Pelicans and showed that he can easily play side-by-side with another point guard, Jrue Holiday. By signing Randle, it would appear that DeMarcus Cousins' time in New Orleans is through. His progression since he was drafted out of Kentucky with the No. 7 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft raised eyes in his fourth NBA season. They also could waive him and stretch his contract in order to lessen their salary cap burden. He had averages of 16.1 points, and 8.0 rebounds, per game.
