Zach Randolph Avoids Jail Time with Plea Deal
It has been a rough offseason for the new Sacramento King.
In August, Zach Randolph was apprehended for an incident in which he resisted arrest as well as held possession of marijuana with the intent to sell. Appearing in court, Randolph pled no contest, working out a deal in which the veteran power forward will avoid jail time. In turn, Randolph will be forced to complete 150-hours of community service. If the former Memphis Grizzly is to complete his community service hours and has no further run-ins with the law over the next 12-months, his resisting arrest conviction will be removed from his record.
Entering the first year of his two-year, $24-million deal with the Kings, Randolph will now await further discipline from the NBA.
Randolph spent his last eight NBA seasons playing in Memphis where he averaged 16.8-points and 10.2-rebounds over that span. The 26-year old averaged 14.1-points and 8.2-rebounds per game in his final year with the team, predominantly coming off the bench.
