The Lakers selected Julius Randle yesterday in the first round of the NBA Draft, while the Clippers, with the 28th overall pick, nabbed CJ Wilcox.

The 19-year-old Randle averaged 15.0 points on 50 percent shooting and 10.4 rebounds in his freshman season for the University of Kentucky.

Wilcox, a shooting guard from the University of Washington, averaged 14.4 points on 43.3 percent shooting from the field, 38.9 percent from three-point range, over his four-year career.

Are Randle and Wilcox good picks for the L.A. teams? How do certain picks complement certain teams?
