Randle ‘unlikely’ in Lakers’ long-term plans

Julius Randle and fellow Lakers youngsters Larry Nance Jr. and Jordan Clarkson are playing well, despite the trade deadline looming.

It appears that forward Julius Randle is not in the Los Angeles Lakers’ long-term plans, according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

In fact, Randle may be not be with the team beyond this season, Wojnarowski suggested.

“One player whose future is very unlikely to continue with the Lakers is Julius Randle,” said Wojnarowski on ESPN (via RealGM). “Rob Pelinka, their general manager, and Magic Johnson, their president, will be faced with this question: Do they look to trade Randle between now and the February trade deadline and get back potentially a first-round draft pick for him, or do they roll the dice and wait until summer when he’s a restricted free agent.”

Randle is 6-foot-9 and was selected with the seventh overall draft pick in 2014. He is averaging 11.5 points and 6.3 rebounds this season.

  1. Would love for the Cavs to pick Randle up. I think he is going to be very good in the coming years. I rate him, not sure why the Lakers don’t.
