Rondo for 9M, waiving Randle created 13.8M in cap space (per Bobby Marks). Since Rondo signed, does this make it impossible for a Pelicans-Lakers to complete a sign and trade involving Randle and Rondo/Boogie? It seems Lonzo's services are unnecessary . What else could this mean? Is this a foreshadowing move?

Has to be.  Rondo wouldn't sign on to be a backup, and they wouldn't pay $9MM for a backup.  And, Ball needs minutes to develop his game.  Something has to give I would imagine.

Oh wow. Pacers might end up being the toughest competition in the East. While not the West, a 𝚃𝚘𝚙-4 of Boston, Toronto, Philly, and Indy is certainly still formidable.

I was worried about the Pacers going hard after Smart.  Can we take them off the smart list after this signing?  And yes, the Pacers are going to be sneaky good.

Good, he can stay in LA in the off-season, but brave the cold when he comes to Boston.  ;D ;D :angel: :angel:

Yeah I'm convinced the Lakers are about to start a dynasty with AD buying an LA mansion, Rondo there, LBJ there and Kawhi soon to be there.

LeBron will be 35, by the time AD can conclusively force a trade out, and I seriously doubt AD is going to be that much interested in Kawhi/Rondo/LBJ if Kawhi doesn't end up there, and they get knocked out of the 1st round. Which I gather, that will probably happen.

Nice low cost & risk high upside signing.

According to multiple sources Julius Randle asked to be renounced by the the Lakers once it became clear his role could dramatically change this season and the team wasnt interested in making a longer term commitment to him.

I like Tyreke, but hes gotten a bit overrated around here.  Yes, he shot the ball great last year, but hes a career 31% shooter from 3, and even after the new year his shooting had dipped below 35%, much closer to his career average, or even his more recent trend, than the 43% he shot for the first couple of months.  On top of that he played all of 52 games last year, coming off of seasons where he played in only 25 and 40.  He still does other things well enough, but hes primarily depth.

Im sure hell have his uses, but he does not turn the Pacers into a team that challenges Boston, Toronto, or Philly.
