The Los Angeles Lakers chose to go with Julius Randle out of Kentucky with the seventh overall pick in the 2014 NBA draft and it seems to be a popular selection.

Shortly after Randle was drafted, Kobe Bryant took to Twitter to welcome his newest teammate:

The rumors were running rampant heading toward Thursday’s draft about the Lakers’ intentions. Talk of the franchise making a potentially game-changing trade began to circulate, but the team instead chose to go with Randle on draft day.

Drafting Randle may ultimately be the right move for the Lakers as they attempt to rebuild with a solid young core. Randle’s draft stock did take a hit with talk of a foot injury, but it may have worked out in the Lakers’ favor.

With Pau Gasol and Jordan Hill potentially headed elsewhere in free agency, Randle may have a chance to play immediately. Kobe already seems to be fan of the pick made by the Lakers which is always a step in the right direction.

    Please Mitch, re-sign Jordan Hill! I wanna see Hill and Randle play!

    • Chrmngblly

      I like Hill. I would still like to see them buy another pick and grab a foreign Big or something…

      What if Nash is good next year?

      • Vega One

        I like Jordan Hill too he is really helpful and can do a little spin move for a big average guy…he just didnt have enough minutes on the court.. and speaking of Nash I believe he will do great and will play healthier than last year… Him and Kobe just needed alot of rest last year (y) #LALakers4life

      I think Randle is going to make people forget all about Hill. The only thing that will be missed is that mop on top of his head.
