Full Name: Zachary Randolph Current Team: Los Angeles Clippers
Height/Weight: 6'9"/260 Number: 50
Birthdate: July 16, 1981 Entry Draft: 1st round (19th) in 2001
Birthplace: Marion, Indiana Drafted By: Portland Trail Blazers
Position: PF/C College: Michigan State University


A 6'9", 250+ lb. tank, Zach Randolph anchors the power forward position for the New York Knicks. "Z-Bo," as he is sometimes called, earned NBA Comeback of the Year honors in 2003-04—a season during which he averaged 20.1 points per game and 10.5 boards per contest, while playing a career-high 81 games. After this season, Randloph signed a six year, $84 million contract extension.

Randolph followed his breakout year with two consecutive 18+ point, 8+ rebounds per game years. In 2006-07, however, he started to shine again, averaging 10.1 rebounds/game and 23.6 points/game.

Off-court (and in practice!), Randolph's behavior has been less than ideal. During his rookie year—he left Michigan State after his freshman year—Randolph was cited and fined for underage drinking. He punched teammate Ruben Patterson during a 2003 practice, earning a two game suspension. In 2006, two cars registered to Patterson were pulled over for racing in a 20 mph zone, and later that year, a sexual assault complaint was filed against Randolph (but charges were later dropped).

The Knicks acquired Thomas from the Portland Trail Blazers, along with Dan Dickau, Fred Jones and draft rights to Demetris Nichols, on June 28, 2007, in a draft day deal for Steve Francis, Channing Frye, and a 2008 2nd round draft pick.

Scouting Report

A ferocious rebounder on the offensive glass and a talented scorer, Randolph is nonetheless a liability on defense. His portly frame makes him ill-suited for the frenetic pace of most games, but helps him in half-court sets—especially in jockeying for position in the post. He's a solid and underrated passer but you do not want him putting the ball on the floor often, if ever.
