Over the next 12 hours, there were no updates regarding LeBron James and the Lakers as his representatives met with the Philadelphia 76ers. In a surprising move, the 33-year-old, who has been known to take his time in free agency, announced he was signing with the storied franchise.

Following James’ arrival, the Lakers also re-signed Kentavious Caldwell-Pope while signing Lance Stephenson and JaVale McGee. While they still have numerous options such as a Kawhi Leonard trade, the next step may be re-signing Julius Randle.

According to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports, Randle has not received an offer yet, but is hopeful of re-signing as both sides will meet:

Although Randle had a career season and there were concerns of potentially losing him, the market has dried up significantly in his restricted free agency. As a result, it appears the question is if the Lakers will sign him to a long-term deal or attempt to preserve cap space for 2019 free agency.

For president of basketball operations Magic Johnson and general manager Rob Pelinka, they took a major step in their vision in just their second offseason together. With James signing a four-year contract, he has given them time to build a perennial championship contender.
