Could Randle fall to #9?

26 posts in this topic

I'd rather start Cody Zeller at PF than a short guy with short arms like Randle. That mess in this video isn't going to work in the NBA.

Cody Zeller wingspan: 6'10.75"

Julius Randle wingspan: 7'0"

7 foot tall + 6'11 wingspan > 6'9 (barely) + 7ft wingspan

Randle played in the post in college because he had no reason to go anywhere else, he was too strong and skilled for most teams to stop him.  He has a good stroke (70% on FTs) so I have no doubt the rest of his game will develop.

 

He is Kevin Love size, easily big enough to play PF, and strong enough to play C for stretches.  I dont know if he fits the team right now, but he would be the best prospect available if he falls to 9

Ask Bismack Biyombo about wingspan, it hasn't helped him so far.
