7 things to know about new Pelicans forward Julius Randle

The 32-year-old averaged 8.3 points, 8.2 assists, 4 rebounds and 1.1 steals in 63 regular season games.

The Lakers have renounced Julius Randle, making him an unrestricted free agent, league source tells ESPN.

Elsewhere, The Lakers continued the rebuilding of their club by agreeing to a one-year, $9 million deal with veteran point guard Rajon Rondo, according to multiple reports.

Randle came into training camp last season in the best shape of his life.

Harry Kane says he can score in every World Cup game
I mean, we've been so fortunate to have a squad of players whose character and spirit has formed an incredible bond. He said: "We have to focus on the game tomorrow".

With Rondo as a pass-first point guard without much of a shot, he's a sensible back-up to Lonzo Ball, unless he beats out LaVar Ball's son for the job.

Perhaps they did so because Randle reportedly expressed his desire to play elsewhere next season after the team signed LeBron James over the weekend.

By adding Rondo, the Lakers got a skilled ball handler and great defender who is not known as a great perimeter shooter.

With free agency just one day in, the Los Angeles Lakers are clearly not done dealing. The four-time All-Star also won a championship in 2008 with the Boston Celtics.

Eleven family members found dead in Delhi home
In a shocking incident, 11 bodies were recovered from a house in Burari area of New Delhi on early Sunday morning. The family reportedly ran a grocery shop and a plywood business out of their home.

If you thought the biggest move of the National Basketball Association free agency period had already taken place, think again. That cap space could increase to $16 million if the team uses the waive-and-stretch provision on Luol Deng, which would stretch out the $36 million owed to him over five seasons.

The Lakers, who secured a commitment from LeBron James on Sunday night, are rumored to have interest in Cousins, who is recovering from a torn Achilles tendon.

By renouncing their rights to Randle, the Lakers parted ways with their longest-tenured player.

Los Angeles selected Ball with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.
