That said, all those guys are all on one-year deals, the Lakers have maintained flexibility long term.
He teams up with James who will join the Lakers on a four-year deal worth $153.3million (£116m).
According to Ramona Shelburne, Randle asked the Lakers to renounce his rights upon the Rondo signing once it became clear he would have a diminished role.
Cousins was in line for a max deal last season until he tore his achilles tendon while playing for the New Orleans Pelicans.

Remarkably, neither Ronaldo nor Messi have managed to score a single goal in a knockout tie in four World Cups going back to 2006. After Uruguay clinched victory to set up a last-eight showdown with France , Cavani told A Bola: "It's very exciting".
With Rondo as a pass-first point guard without much of a shot, he's a sensible back-up to Lonzo Ball, unless he beats out LaVar Ball's son for the job.
Why? To free up the $12.5 million cap hold so they could chase other players and hand out slightly oversized one-year contracts.
The Pelicans lost Rajon Rondo to the Lakers earlier on Monday. The Lakers added Rondo's quick hands and length, Stephenson's aggressive defense, McGee's length and shot-blocking ability and brought back one of their best defenders from previous year in Caldwell-Pope.
Rajon Rondo is teaming up with LeBron James. Randle is more of a ball-handler and off-the-dribble threat.
Rondo is going to Lakers training camp and has plans to compete for the starting job, according to Yahoo Sports. The next big question revolves around free agent DeMarcus Cousins. He had averages of 16.1 points, and 8.0 rebounds, per game. Prior to James' arrival, Turner Sports' David Aldridge reported that Randle was not interested in remaining in Los Angeles, which selected him with the seventh pick out of Kentucky in the 2014 National Basketball Association draft.
