I think even some of the more vocal critics have been turned due to his stellar play this year.


Nope. I'm on-board. I always thought he was talented but hated his game because he often played OOC and rarely helped on defense. Those weren't talent issues they were mental and maturity issues but he's shown a lot of progress in those areas this season.

Hopefully, these aren't contract year performances but that's always a risk with any player. He's earned the opportunity to be part of this team's future.

JR is getting the shaq "non-call" treatment now, which is extremely annoying. Just because he is physically stronger and makes a quick move doesnt mean he's NOT getting hacked every time he goes up for the lefty layup. I feel he get's hammered on most of those strong moves. Granted, he's imposing his strength on the defender but it's not his fault he can move guys around like shaq did. A foul is still a foul and it shouldnt be called differently just because a guy like IT would be getting thrown 10 feet after the hack.

As much as I love his improvement, it's hard to ignore the turnovers. Too often I check his box score and see near equal assists and turnovers and it's not really getting better. I think it's the most important aspect of his game he needs to work on, even moreso than a jumpshot.
agreed. He's still mistake prone. Too many turnovers, offensive fouls etc. He holds the ball too much at times. But his positives outweigh his negatives due to his physical gifts. Hopefully the mental aspects of the game continue to improve.

I still think it depends on what sort of offers he gets. If Dallas offers him the max for example, I doubt the Lakers would match that. I think they'll try to retain Randle at a price that doesn't interfere with the two max plan.

I am going to be upset if we don't keep him now. Kudos to you Julius- you made me a believer!

Dallas has about 14m in cap space IIRC. They have Powell who is an analytical darling at PF. They will likely draft a PF or a big man. They like Barnes at Pf and have that dirk guy still. I donít understand why they would give him a 25m max.

Dallas can make room for 29 million if they renounce their players, which can easily happen.

Julius + LeBron will be such an incredible tandem. PG and BI on wings. Lonzo "running the point". Kuzma + Hart as major rotation players. Lopez as the starting C... get ready folks.

I think starting five in that scenario would be

Ball
George
Ingram
James
Randle

With bench:

A vet PG
Hart
Ring chaser SF
Kuzma
Lopez
1st rd pick
Zubac
Bryant

That starting lineup would be killer on defense too.

So their entire plan is to renounce players to add what would likely be a 5th big man between dirk, draft pick, Powell, and Barnes and pay jules a 25m max knowing heís a RFA?

Agreed. A front office would be nuts to gut their team for a shot to overpay another big man on their team. I just donít see it especially if they draft a big (likely).

Randle has been breaking out. It's not even just playing well anymore. He's a serious player. I think it not only makes LA more likely to match just about any offers, I think it makes it less likely a competing offer comes in. Dallas isn't going to want to watch their cap room languish for the busiest 48 hours of free agency only to watch LA match.

I could see Sacramento putting in a serious bid though. Radavine was said to like Randle when they were discussing a deal for Boogie

They don't have much of a team outside of DSJ, Barnes, and the draft pick. Dirk is gone after next year. They can still offer 18 million and keep whatever pieces they want. They are going to tank next year as well.

Yup. Itís a waste of time to go after jules now. We will make a way to keep him at all costs

Iíd match for 18M if Dallas offered that.

Powell is actually a really good player and I think Dallas has finally realized that and they have been starting him. His O and D rating along with pretty much all his advanced stats scream a very good player. Heís from the same class as Julius and heís also starting to realize his potential. Dallas could look to possibly pay their own guy with their cap space.

McDermott is also a restricted free agent thatís been playing well but I donít think heís that high on their priority list. Who knows though since they traded for him.

If I were Dallas, Powell is the a no brainier. If I were the Lakers, Randle is worth it if he promises to keep working on the jumper and maybe a fade away.

The 18 millions is a steep price though...13m/4yrs to start, 15.5 max for me.

Is Randle the 2nd best player out of 2014 draft after Embiid? (Wiggins? Parker? Smart? Gordon? Lavine? Nurkic?)

Probably Jokic. He is probably 3rd at this point and could get better.

Embiid and Jokic are in a tier by themselves out of that draft. After that, I'd group Wiggins, Parker (ignoring injuries, which admittedly is tough w/ him), Gordon, Gary Harris, and Julius in that 2nd tier.

I think Julius definitely has a chance to end up the best player out of that second tier.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that there's not much of a market for Julius and that we can get him for something like 4/60, or maybe even cheaper. That would be a STEAL.

I still don't see Randle as a full time starting C but I guess it doesn't matter a whole lot. That's a good problem to have.
