I recognized the name from his college years at Duke, but admittedly had to wikipedia this one.
Here is the good:
- He’s tall! (6’10″)
- He was the number six recruit in his high school class after being named a McDonalds All-American and went to Duke
- Randolph earned his way, after being left undrafted on draft night, onto the 76ers roster
- He had a hot 5-game stretch in the NBA where he put up 7+ points and 6+ boards in a little over 18 minutes per game
- He, simply put, did not play well at Duke
- He was named the biggest recruiting bust for the 2000′s by Seth Davis
- He was in the NBA last during the 2009-2010 season where he averaged two minutes a game
- He has been playing in China and Puerto Rico for the last year
This would fill the 15 roster for now if Danny Ainge decides to hold onto all of the 10-day contracts (Williams, White, and now Randolph) as the season progresses, but there is still time for tinkering.
The news was first reported by RealGM.
