Julius Randle 2021: Net worth, Salary, and Endorsements
Julius Deion Randle is an NBA player who plays for the New York Knicks. He was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers in 2014 with their seventh overall pick. He is currently in his seventh season in the league.
Randle began his college career with the Kentucky Wildcats, where he just played one season. But with a remarkable stat line of 15 points and 10.4 rebounds per game, he won multiple awards and impressed NBA scouts. This led to him being a top 10 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.
In his rookie season, Randle played just one game and was on the sidelines mostly because of a broken tibia. He played three seasons with the Lakers and showed steady growth each year. Despite that, they let him go, and he then signed a two-year deal with the Pelicans.
He had a career-high season in New Orleans, and so he knew he could play for a better team. So, in the following off-season, he rejected his player option, and then signed a three-year deal with the Knicks.
Julius Randle and New York Knicks
In July 2019, Randle joined the Knicks as their marquee free agent signing. The Knicks received a lot of stick since they were linked with bigger names but ended up with Randle. But the former Kentucky star used this as motivation and had a bright start to his Knicks career.
