DISCLAIMER: The following post is NOT an outright endorsement of Julius Randle as the 76ers 2014 NBA Draft Lottery selection. It is simply a hypothetical idea that crossed my mind last night as I watched Randle and Kentucky play.
Leading up to last night’s big college basketball double-header my thoughts on the 2014 Draft class were that either Andrew Wiggins or Jabari Parker would be a great fit for the 7-6. As I watched the games last night, those thoughts were quickly confirmed. Both are athletic, fantastic wing players who could step right in and start for Brett Brown. Either one would be a tremendous fit as a draft pick for the Sixers.
So I asked myself the following as I watched Kentucky play Michigan State on Tuesday night, “What if the Sixers aren’t in a position to select one of those two players? What if Hinkie ends up on the clock and Julius Randle is the best player available? Would Randle be a good fit here?”
