Default Julius Randle - what's his worth ? Value ?

Where do ppl see him currently? What tier ?
Where do you project him, career wise?


Starter ? All star ? Franchise player? Max and players 3rd best in a good team?


And where does he play next year ?
Does he ever find a new home? Will he move around ? Will he underachieve ? What will his peak look like ?

Really don't want to overpay to keep him..
Has way too many bonehead moments where he just charges to the basket head down
Misses a ton of easy shots and rarely passes..

Then he will have a great game like against the nuggets and Suns.

The team needs some vets and some players who can shoot the 3 so I have no idea what the plans for randle are

Good post. Julius would fit best on a team where the talent is already there and he can slide into a defined role off the bench ideally. He's still got some maturing to do, and I think that along with pending free agency sinks any trade value. His trajectory could be similar to either one of the Morris twins.

I do think you sell him a little short on his passing, but that's just nitpicking.

That was his go-to move at UK.

He'd just bully dudes in the paint.

I think he is a good player off the bench. That's also his ceiling on a good team. On a bad to mediocre team he can be a starter but he won't be a 1st or 2nd option and he shouldn't be. He is not bad to have on your team but tradable and I think will be traded many times in his 12-14 year career.

I think he might be the best player on the team this year. That's not saying much though.

I think on a great team he can be a starter or 6th man type and play 30+ mpg and have a big impact. I do wonder how long he'll be able to do this. He doesn't seem like the type that will age all that well. But he's young now and has some room for short term improvement.

He is a low-end starter. Definitely no star but a solid role player. I wouldn't want him as anything more than 4th option on a decent team. He would have to be the 4th or 5th option or come off the bench with 2nd unit.

He needs a coach like Pop to maximize his talent to become the best version of himself. Luke isn't the guy to do it.

I wouldn't pay a cent over 10 mil per year for him. I'm sure he wants more though, So Magic will ship his ass out.

Brad Stevens could turn him into an All Star. Celtics should offer a top 25 protected 1st round pick.

I can see him being a young Zach Randolph type player.

I think he could definitely put up 20/10 if given the minutes, but as many have mentioned before, he rarely passes and makes some boneheaded plays. This was exactly like a young Zbo.

I personally think the Lakers should keep him and fit him into their long term plans as best they can. They're not gonna get great value for him.

They would like to keep him but he's going to demand big money...he's working this hard because it's his contract year...he wasn't taking it seriously last year when he was fat & struggled playing 30 minutes. I think he's going to have a career year in terms of efficiency this season and he'll fall back on his bad habits once he gets paid big.

He's a willing passer/playmaker, he averaged almost 4 assists last season in less than 30 minutes a game, that's more than most guards I would think. He could be an all-star if he worked hard enough but it's too early to say. He has the athletic ability to score 20+ a night but will he work on his right hand ?

Unprotected 1st rounder or no deal

Jahlil Okafor and a warm 6-pack. Take it or leave it.
