The Los Angeles Lakers just swapped out one former Cat for another. According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Lakers renounced their rights to Julius Randle, making him an unrestricted free agent, and agreed to a one-year deal with Rajon Rondo. Whoa.
Shams Charania is reporting that Rondo’s deal is worth $9 million, a hefty increase over his base salary of $3.3 million with the New Orleans Pelicans last year. This will be his sixth team in six years. Everyone will talk about Rondo and LeBron, but I can’t wait to see how he gets along with Lonzo.
By renouncing Randle and bringing Rondo on board, are the Lakers going after DeMarcus Cousins, too?
