Mentor: Julius Randle can be more versatile player at NBA level

While acknowledging the challenges associated with a move from college to the NBA, Julius Randle’s mentor said Tuesday that the now former Kentucky player can rely on a more versatile game to ease the advancement.

Jeff Webster, a 2,000-point scorer for Oklahoma in the 1990s, said Randle sacrificed his individual game to help the Kentucky team prosper this past season.

“He can’t just be the one guy out there doing everything,” Webster said. “They’d have never made the run (if Randle tried to dominate)."
