LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) Julius Randle has been busy, drafted by the Lakers at the end of June, signing his first pro contract and playing in the summer league in Las Vegas. Monday he returned to Lexington for John Calipari's annual Pro Camp.

Randle spent one season at Kentucky and ended up the No. 7 pick in the draft. He said it was special the first time he put on a Laker uniform.

"It was cool, just like when you first put on that Kentucky gear." said Randle. "Ya know it's a brand, it's a school that has so much tradition, and when you put on that Laker gear it's the same thing. It's an organization, it's a family, just like Kentucky that has so much tradition and has done so much in the past.

Randle said he intends to live up to expectations in Los Angeles. He knows the NBA will present different challenges, but he also sees an advantage from what he went through at UK.

"I mean the court is a lot more spread, the spacing, it's just a lot different. Like coach (Calipari) was saying earlier, you don't get double and triple (teamed). I'ts kind of a lot more spaced and easier I would say. I'll have to make the adjustments."
