Julius Randle is going to play alongside All-Star Anthony Davis.
Randle agreed to sign with the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday Sidney Crosby Jersey , doing so quickly after his rights were renounced by the Los Angeles Lakers hours earlier. His decision was confirmed by a person familiar with the negotiations and speaking on condition of anonymity because nothing has been signed.
ESPN, which first reported the Randle agreement, said it was a two-year, $18 million deal.
The move pairs Randle in the Pelicans’ frontcourt with Davis, another former Kentucky star.
Davis and DeMarcus Cousins formed perhaps the best 1-2 frontcourt punch in basketball last season before Cousins got hurt. And now, Cousins has gone to the defending NBA champions after agreeing Monday to a one-year, $5.3 million deal to sign with the Golden State Warriors.
