How Randle Fits in With the Lakers


With the 7th pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, the Los Angeles Lakers selected Julius Randle from Kentucky.

This is a good value pick for the Lakers. While there are bigger names in the draft, Randle will has the talent to come in from day one and be a 15-10 guy in the NBA.

Randle’s range will help on offense, and while he may be a bit undersized on defense, he reminds many of a young Zach Randolph. If that turns out to be the case, the Lakers will be very happy.
