Randolph could see his workload reduced as a result of the Kings selecting Marvin Bagley with the number two overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. Randolph signed a two-year, $24 million contract with the Kings last summer and played a significant role on the team in 2017-18. He appeared in 59 games, averaging 14.5 points, 6.7 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 25.6 minutes. However, with Sacramento bringing in power forward/center Bagley, Randolph's role could fall by the wayside as the team looks to continue the rebuild.
Randolph averaged 14.5 points, 6.7 rebounds and 2.2 assists across 59 games played with Sacramento in 2017-18. Despite playing in the lowest amount of games since the 2011-12 season, the 35-year-old showed no signs of slowing down as he increased his scoring, assists and blocks per game from last year. In addition, Randolph also improved his field-goal and free-throw percentages to 47.3 and 78.5 percent respectively. However, the former Michigan State star will look for a new home next year when free agency opens this summer.
Randolph (coach's decision) did not see the floor during Friday's 94-93 win over the Grizzlies. Randolph went from projected starter to a DNP-CD, marking his eighth straight absence. The 17-year veteran was apparently healthy enough to play Friday after recently battling an illness, so it remains to be seen if he'll take the floor in the Kings' penultimate game of the season against the Spurs on Monday night.
Randolph, as the result of a late lineup switch, will not start during Friday's contest against the Grizzlies, Jason Jones of The Sacramento Bee reports. Due to an illness and personal reasons, Randolph has missed the team's past seven games. Originally, it appeared he would start and play Friday. However, due to a late lineup switch, Randolph won't be in the starting five. As a result, there's no guarantee he'll take the floor.
Randolph (personal) will draw the start at power forward for Friday's contest against Memphis, Jason Jones of The Sacramento Bee reports. Randolph has not played over the past seven games, but that will change Friday, as he'll re-join the starting five. The move will push Vince Carter down to small forward, subsequently sending Justin Jackson to the bench.
