CHICAGO – Ending up with Julius Randle might not be bad for the 76ers if they drop below the top three spots in Tuesday's NBA Draft Lottery.
The former Kentucky power forward is one of the headliners of the June 26 draft. The 6-foot-9, 250-pounder is being compared to Memphis Grizzlies power forward Zach Randolph.
Randle finishes well around the rim and has a solid face-up game. Randle is also effective in pick-and-rolls and on pick-and-pops. The Texas native averaged 15 points and 10.4 rebounds and was an Associated Press all-American third-teamer as a freshman last season.
