After being drafted by the Lakers, Randle said the following about what he’s bringing to Los Angeles, according to Mike Trudell of Lakers.com:

Randle could make an immediate impact in Los Angeles due to the team’s current situation. Not only will Randle have an opportunity to play immediately and potentially become a starter next season, Kobe Bryant will likely be a fan of the former Wildcat due to his mentality and motor.

Randle said the following about Kobe via Trudell:

As of right now, the Lakers taking Randle with the seventh pick is a hit with the fans. Most believe Randle will be an impact player right out of the gate and all signs point to the Kentucky star having the chance to do just that next season.
