Julius Randle doesn’t actually control where he can play next season, but the Lakers stud forward would prefer to play on a playoff roster, whether in Los Angeles or elsewhere.
“I just want to be in a great situation where I can continue to grow as a basketball player,” Randle said at the NBA Draft Combine on Thursday. “Going into my fifth year I really want to compete. I see the playoffs and the intensity and that’s something I really want to be a part of and experience … That’s really all I’m looking for, just to have fun and compete in playing basketball and continue to grow as a player.”
Randle will be a restricted free agent this offseason, and he could be included in a trade or a main fixture in the Lakers' resurgence.

After a rough start, Randle had his best season as a pro, averaging a career-high 16.1 points per game on 55.8 percent shooting, along with eight rebounds per game.
