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. In his first season, he averaged 19.5 points and 9.7 rebounds per game, despite the Knicks poor season overall.

But in his second season, the arrival of a new coach in Tom Thibodeau helped him improve further. He averaged career highs in points and assists and also became a sharpshooter. Randle stepped up as a true leader of the team, as their main scorer and also their primary playmaker.

This new role helped the Knicks finish as the fourth seed, their best finish regular season since 2012-13. He is now likely to be an All-NBA player and is the favorite to win Most Improved Player too.
