$9M? I was happy to see him signing, I thought it was a 1-year deal. But for $9M? That is a TON of money. Where is all this money coming from?

We let go of JR for Rondo!?!?!

Guys chill Lonzo is going nowhere. He will start and Rondo will teach him a lot.

For the $9 million though, this either means Julius is gone, we're stretching Deng, or we have a deal in place for Deng?

Jules is gone and Lonzo will probably back up Rondo...I doubt
Rondo agrees any other way but we'll see...

hardly a "dumb" move since it is only a 1 year deal.

The question is the fit and i think it'll be fine. He should be coming off the bench as to not limit Lonzo's growth.

I'd hardly call this "dumb" though.

They renounced Randle to sign Rondo?

I have no idea how that makes sense.

Randle probably didn't want to be here. That was the sentiment and since Aaron Mintz is his agent, they probably wanted some ridiculous contract.

The Lakers didn't drop Randle, Randle dropped the Lakers. Randle perhaps needed a new environment, so he's going to get it. Not sure if he'll get paid what he's worth, but that's on him.

The pickup of Rondo is a good pickup. Yes, he's not a consistent shooter, but he's a vet that can get the offense moving and who can irritate opposing guards. Lonzo isn't exactly a healthy player, and being he can be out for an extended amount of time, this is insurance.

That said, I don't like all these rentals playing with Lebron. I'm sure they are consulting Lebron on this, but it just doesn't make sense.

Well, lets trust Magic and his team. They got us Lebron, so...

I leave for a couple hours and...

Didn't see Rondo but definitely happy to see a legitimate PG with playoff experience.

Battle tested, good defender, good floor general and improved shooter over the past few years. Mentors Ball and makes Ball have to compete and earn the job. If Ball struggles or is injured it fills a much needed weak point from last year.

Overall, I can live with it. Even though the price tag is expensive.

Randle obviously wanted a long term deal.

Lakers are apparently only giving out 1 year contracts so that limits who they can sign..

Thats not how RFA works.

The Lakers can offer a qualifying offer, etc etc.

And it's not like that can't be accepted, and they had his cap hold which they could go over the cap to sign.

Either way you slice it


This makes no sense.
