Rajon Rondo returning to Lakers on two-year deal

Rajon Rondo returning to Lakers on two-year deal

But after reports came out that Leonard intends to sign with the Clippers, Green agreed to a two-year, $30million deal with the Lakers, and announced his decision on social media.

Caldwell-Pope, McGee, Green, Cook, Cousins and Rondo join a rebuilding Lakers team that has seen a lot of change since the season ended. The Lakers will now look to utilize their cap space in order to scoop up some of the best remaining players on the free agency market.

He provided an update on his Instagram account, thanking Toronto for its support: "Thank you Raptors fans. I'm excited. Let's get this show on the road".


After missing out on Kawhi Leonard but landing Danny Green, the Los Angeles Lakers moved early Saturday to re-sign Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and JaVale McGee to help fill out their roster, according to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.

McGee also will re-sign with the Lakers for two years on a deal worth $8.2 million that has a player option. The former UGA star played the last two years with the Lakers, averaging 11.4 points this past season. The 26-year-old originally signed with Los Angeles in 2017 on a one-year, $18-million contract and re-upped with the Lakers for another season at $12 million last July.

The Lakers recently acquired Anthony Davis to pair up with LeBron James, transforming the franchise into legitimate title contenders. LeBron, Davis and Kyle Kuzma were their core trio, and Frank Vogel now has a solid rotation.
