ESPN, Sports Illustrated, The Los Angeles Times and New Orleans Times-Picayune reported Rondo will sign a one-year deal with the Lakers for USD9 million after releasing forward Julius Randle to free up space under the National Basketball Association salary cap.
While Rondo has demonstrated that he can still contribute, especially as a passer, his defense and shooting are still severe limitations in his game. The Lakers agreed to a one-year, $9 million deal with Rajon Rondo (Pelicans).
Last week, Magic Johnson suggested the Lakers were operating on a two-year plan and would not be rushed into decision this summer, particularly given Leonard, Irving, Klay Thompson and DeAndre Jordan will be unrestricted free agents in 12 months.

We know he has discussed team building with team president Magic Johnson. "He didn't go to the Rockets, he didn't go to Golden State, he went to [the] Lakers, a team that finished 10th or 11th in their conference and now they're the number two favorite to win the title". Antawn Jamison led the team in points per game (18), Mo Williams in assists (7.1), Anderson Varejao in rebounds (9.7), and Daniel "Boobie" Gibson in spirit (110%).

Earlier in the week, Johnson seemed resigned to the possibility he might not get James or Paul George, who ended up re-signing with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The agreement came on the first day of free agency, with the 14-time NBA All Star set to sign his new contract on Friday. But with LeBron James on the roster, the Lakers jumped from 20/1 to win the title to 7/2. With the addition of LeBron, the Lakers are instantly back in the championship picture.
