Julius Randle Remains Hopeful Of Receiving Offer From Lakers

Julius Randle

Apparently, Randle wasn't insane about the idea of his role with the Lakers changing after all the moves they made in National Basketball Association free agency thus far.

That ensured the Lakers reserved the right to match any offer sheet Randle would potentially sign with another team. Randle holds a player option in the second year, the report says.

The Lakers are jostling their roster, also reportedly renouncing the rights to forward Julius Randle, making him a free agent. The Pelicans allowed Cousins to play in a similar way, and Randle's skill set should make him a natural fit playing next to Davis.

In his one year with the Pelicans, Rondo averaged 8.3 points and 8.2 assists per game in the regular season, and excelled in the playoffs with 10.3 PPG and 12.2 APG.

Rondo was excellent in the playoffs as the Pelicans swept the Portland Trail Blazers in the first-round of the Western Conference playoffs.

Rajon Rondo is teaming up with LeBron James. He'll join new Laker additions James, JaVale McGee and Lance Stephenson.

The Lakers also added versatility with James, Rondo and Stephenson all triple-double threats on any given night.

He has bounced around a bit since being traded from the Celtics during the 2014-15 season, ending his eight-plus year run in Boston.

The notable free agent nugget that remains as it relates to the New Orleans Pelicans is where Cousins will go.
