Julius Randle agrees to two-year deal with New Orleans Pelicans

DeMarcus Cousins is joining the Golden State Warriors in a shock free-agency move

DeMarcus Cousins is joining the Golden State Warriors in a shock free-agency move

Randle tweeted that he was excited to join the Pelicans.

Randle averaged a career-high 16.1 points last season while also averaging 8.0 rebounds and playing all 82 games.

The status of Julius Randle, who is a restricted free agent, appears in doubt.

The Lakers have renounced Julius Randle, added Lance Stephenson, JaVale McGee and re-signed Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

ESPN's Ramona Shelburne reports that Randle requested the Lakers renounce his rights earlier on Monday.

A Randle-Davis pairing will work similar to the Cousins-Davis pairing last season.

Rondo is coming off a stellar season with the Pelicans and showed that he can easily play side-by-side with another point guard, Jrue Holiday.

James will join a Lakers team which has missed the playoffs for five consecutive seasons, the longest streak in franchise history. Though James will be playing for another team next season, there is no denying the impact he had on Northeast Ohio.

Rondo reportedly agreed to sign a one-year contract with the Lakers on Monday. Rondo walks into a crowded backcourt, which includes Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball.

The Lakers are the fifth team the 32-year-old Rondo since he was traded from the Celtics to the Dallas Mavericks back in 2014-15.

The move came shortly after Pelicans point guard Rajon Rondo, another former United Kingdom player, reportedly agreed to a contract with the Lakers.

Deng's $36 million salary would then be paid out over five seasons.

ESPN is reporting that DeMarcus "Boogie" Cousins, one the best big men in the game is joining the reigning champion Golden State Warriors.

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. Prior to James' arrival, Turner Sports' David Aldridge reported that Randle was not interested in remaining in Los Angeles, which selected him with the seventh pick out of Kentucky in the 2014 National Basketball Association draft.
