More Free Agency Moves out of LA: Lakers Sign Rajon Rondo, Allow Julius Randle to Enter Free Agency

The free agent frenzy isn’t over in LA yet.

Everyone knows LeBron chose to head to the Lakers yesterday on a 4-year deal, but that hasn’t stopped GM from making more moves. After also bringing in Lance Stephenson and JaVale McGee to accompany LeBron, it was recently reported that the Lakers had signed Veteran point guard Rajon Rondo. Rondo revamped his career in New Orleans last season, averaging 10 points, 12 assists, and 6 rebounds per game for the Pelicans in the playoffs. Now he’ll join a Lakers roster with only one other point guard on it in Lonzo Ball. However, the larger (and more questionable) news out of LA is that they have renounced forward Julius Randle, making him an unrestricted free agent. Randle average 16 points and 8 rebounds this season on 58% shooting from the field. Many people and analysts really liked Randle and thought he might have the most upside of any of the Lakers young prospects. The 23-year old be entering his 4th NBA season next year and will have plenty of suitors from around the league. It doesn’t seem like Magic Johnson and the Lakers front-office are going to slow down with the moves in order to surround LeBron with a team they all feel can contend for a championship, so expect to see the Lakers to continue to shuffle their roster around this off-season.
