I believe

that Randle would not do a 1 year deal. So all the people they signed other than Lebron are 1 year contracts.  

I agree that Randle is better than those players they signed but maybe the Lakers were trying to clear cap space to get Leonard next year or another top maximum salary player.  They would have ($14m for Pope, $9m for Rondo, $4m for Stephenson) a total of around at least $25 million.

 

I could be wrong above but I think this might be a reason.
