Free agent F/C Julius Randle has agreed to a two-year, $18 million deal with the Pelicans according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
After being renounced by the Lakers, this is a great deal for both Randle and the Pelicans. He had a terrific season and getting him at $9 million per year is great value; the second year is a player option, too. Woj mentioned that Anthony Davis played a big part in Randle's decision to sign with New Orleans. We'll see what happens with DeMarcus Cousins now, but this deal may rule out a return to the Pels.
