I wonder what's going through Julius Randle's mind right now? I think he earned more money here compared to his worth at the beginning of the season but does he see himself as a top 5 or top 10 Free Agent?
Is Randle trying to recruit for the Lakers or is he being recruited by other players for a new team (Dallas?)?
He's probably trying to figure out where the tipping point is in terms of wanting to stay with the Lakers and getting his next big contract. He probably would love to get paid in LA, but he knows perfectly well that George and Lebron are the main FA targets right now.
Another thing is whether or not he's even getting an offer from someone else. Dallas have been rumored as a potential destination, but they're likely going to draft a player in the top end of the lottery. With Dennis Smith they're not going to pick Trae Young and i'm not sure where Randle fits along all the bigs that are available (Ayton, JJJ, Bamba, Carter and Bagley).
