Julius's cap hold that first year is going to count against the cap only 12.4M which means no matter what the Lakers pay him, THIS off-season it only counts 12.4M against the cap. The only way it wouldn't is if they paid him less than 12.4M and if they even tried to lowball him that badly, they don't deserve him.


Lakers should pay him as little as possible.....what he deserves is extremely subjective.


What he deserves is actually largely objective and numbers based, no?

His explosion really stands out from those clips, both offensively and defensively. I wouldn't be surprised if he doubled his dunks from previous seasons. A lot of strong finishes in those clips.

Just as I was writing the above, looked it up - he had 50 dunks last season, and 99 dunks this season.

If the Lakers do NOT bring Randle back, they better have a plan in place to bring someone physical to the roster to replace what he brings.

Otherwise, it is a big step backwards when we need to be moving all steam forward.

In fact, I hope our entire team does!

Definitely cannot afford to lose him AND Brook. Preferably both are retained.

It seemed like he dunked a lot more often this season. Iím glad Iím not the only person tat noticed that. I wonder if there is anymore room to improve physically from randle or if the rest of his development will depend on skill/mental. I guess we will find out this summer.

Who's out there that can replace Randle for less money? I can't think of anyone, so why the hell would the FO let him walk?

that double clutch which in past looked like just tossing it up to the rim is now a purposeful move. Looking at it slo-mo at the video.. Randle actually hang in the air for a split second until the defender descent and kiss it off the window. This guy bring what Derrick Favors does plus more physicality, better handling and better everything. Favors make about $12mil this year so $14-16mil/yr I hope would do it and we get to keep the 2 max option open

Ha. When I need some protein in a pinch, my go-to is a 2 piece skinless breast. I always have brown rice and veggies in the fridge. Get those macros.

Randle's getting better every year. Plus he's a beast. He put in the work every offseason to buff up and it showed, 82 games played this year. Unlike skinny boy BI and Lonzo, whose frail body can't handle the physicality of the NBA.

I would match any offer up to $18M/yr for him. Hopefully, no other team goes crazy for him because I'd really like to see him back in Lakers uniform.

I'm here to eat Crow. I really wanted Julius gone but he has made incredible strides. Looking forward to next year but I'll probably go back to bashing him 5 games in.

Just throwing this out there, you have some type of University of Kentucky affiliation. You are always hyping up the players from that school....

Would it be worth it to include Randle in a sign and trade for Kawai? Does that make us better, or is Randle going to be that good?

I dunno, maybe I just donít get it. If you look at it year over year from 16-17 to 17-18

Julius per 36
Rebounding numbers down
FT shooting down
Assists Down
Turnovers up
PFs up
Blocks and steals about the same, less than 1 per game each
Defense about the same statistically

What he did improve on was his FG% around the basket, dramatically. Other then that he looked like a different player, but put up the same if not worse numbers down the line. Iím not sure that he really made a quantum leap forward other than he can finish around the rim better, which is good...itís great actually.

His BPM and Per have him ranked somewhere between the 75th and 100th best player in the league, which is nice. Heís an average starter on an average team, a 1 or 2 option on a lottery team and a 4th or 5th option on a playoff team.

I donít think holding onto him should get in the way of signing a max player, if we lose him..itíll be a loss for sure because heís a decent player, but I donít think heís a real game changer. Heís probably worth $10-12M, but heís worth up to 14 if you can lock him up long term just on the potential that he could possibly learn how to hit a jump shot or improve his defense.
