Lakers sign Rajon Rondo to one-year deal for $9 million

Lakers sign Rajon Rondo to one-year deal for $9 million

The latest star to sign with the team in less than 24 hours of LeBron's announcement is Rajon Rondo.

The Lakers and Randle are expected to speak on Monday. Instead, the Lakers renounced the rights to Randle, who was a restricted free agent, to free up enough cap space to come to an agreement on a one-year, $9 million deal with Rondo. Randle is more of a ball-handler and off-the-dribble threat.

Rondo, 32, was a member of the Celtics team that won the National Basketball Association championship in 2007-08, beating the Lakers in six games in the Finals.

Rondo, 32, averaged 8.3 points, 8.2 assists and 4.0 rebounds per game last season for the New Orleans Pelicans. James told Los Angeles executives this week he likes Ball's game and "is excited to play with him", according to ESPN. McGee typically sat on the bench for the Warriors last two Finals runs, and though he looked great during some moments in the most recent championship, it was often when surrounded by four Hall of Fame players.

Musk also said the new factory in a tent is preferable to the regular factory because it has a great view of the mountains. The lawsuit alleged Tesla's board of directors breached its duties to shareholders by approving the merger.

That ensured the Lakers reserved the right to match any offer sheet Randle would potentially sign with another team. Rondo walks into a crowded backcourt, which includes Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball. The next big question revolves around free agent DeMarcus Cousins.

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

Both Davis and Randle played collegiately at Kentucky, and the Pelicans have made it a habit over the past few years to add former Wildcats to the roster.
