LOS ANGELES (AP) The Los Angeles Lakers have exercised their team options for the 2017-18 season on guard D'Angelo Russell and forwards Julius Randle and Larry Nance Jr.

The Lakers announced the expected moves Wednesday before their season opener.

Russell and Nance were first-round picks in the 2015 draft, while Randle was a first-round pick in 2014.

Randle will make nearly $4.15 million next season. After missing 81 games in his rookie season with a broken leg, he averaged 11.3 points and 10.2 rebounds last year while playing 28.2 minutes per game, the fewest among all NBA players averaging a double-double.

Russell will make $5.56 million next season. The No. 2 pick made the NBA All-Rookie second team, averaging 13.2 points and 3.3 assists.

Nance started 22 games for the Lakers last season.
