Julius RandleHt/Wt: 6' 9" / 250 lbs
2014 Draft Profile - Julius RandleJulius Randle is what an NBA prospect looks like. A chiseled, explosive, 6ft9, 250lbs he has the ideal size of a PF, with athleticism of SF. His transition to NBA game might be the easiest because of size, skill, athleticism. Will be a good rebounder right away and blossom into one of the league's best.
Being a #2 option scorer should come fairly easy. He has the strength to finish in traffic, runs well enough to score in transition and has a nice, improving stroke with some range. He is best from mid range where he can explode past his defender. Randle can get to the line consistently where he is efficient. He might need to decide to work on developing his post game or his range, right now he is in between which may lead to games where he struggles to score if hes not getting easy transition buckets. Also needs to work on his offhand. Doesn't have the length to be dynamic defender and may struggle offensively when he cant take his man off a bounce.
There is a plethora of NBA guys that can earn a comparison. Terrance Jones, Blake Griffin, Beasley to name a few. In 2013 Randle woulda been the #1 pick without blinking an eye. He looks like a future All Star.
