Pelicans, Randle agree to 2-year deal

The Lakers Have Renounced Julius Randle This move just broke the NBA
Jennie Wade | 04 July, 2018, 01:18

Since Randle's signing completed New Orleans' frontcourt, it essentially signaled that DeMarcus Cousins didn't have a place on the Pelicans next season.

He has increased both his scoring average and field goal percentage in each of the last three seasons, coming in at 16.1 a night on 55.8 per cent from the floor last season in 82 games for the Lakers.

The Lakers have renounced Julius Randle, making him an unrestricted free agent, league source tells ESPN. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski was the first to report the news.

Randle had a breakout season in 2017-18. A player option in the second year is included.

Uruguay punish sluggish Russian Federation to top Group A
Because Russia had the advantage in goal differential from its first two group matches, it would have won the group with a draw. Russian Federation exceeded those rock-bottom expectations by beating Saudi Arabia and Egypt .

The Lakers have turned their focus away from trying to land Kawhi Leonard in a trade - those talks are still ongoing, but the Lakers don't feel the same pressure to get a deal done fast with LeBron James locked down for four years. Unless Ball is traded away, he would most likely be demoted to a bench role with fellow youngsters Josh Hart and Moe Wagner.

The Los Angeles Lakers roster is starting to look very different than it did less than 24 hours ago.

The Laker experiment this season is going to be fascinating to watch. Randle was the seventh overall pick of the 2014 draft out of Kentucky. A short time after, Cousins agreed to a one-year deal with the champion Golden State Warriors in one of the most shocking free agent moves in recent memory. They also could waive him and stretch his contract in order to lessen their salary cap burden.

His stats as a starter: 18.6 points, 9.1 rebounds, 3.1 assists on 56.0 percent shooting in 29.9 minutes per game.
