What to Do With Anthony Randolph?

by November 05, 2009

The guy who should know, his coach, doesn’t seem to have a clue. (Here’s a crazy idea, Don: play the guy): “Randolph is listed at 6-foot-11 but says he’s closer to 7- foot. He once was considered the team’s long-term solution at power forward, and many believed that he could develop into a ‘3’ with his assortment of skills. No one seems to know what to make of the second-year player anymore. ‘He’s probably taller than anybody I’ve got on the team right now, and he’s still growing, they tell me,’ Nelson said. ‘Maybe, eventually, center will be his position. I don’t know.’ One thing is certain: The future is not now. Starting center Andris Biedrins picked up his third foul in the opening six minutes against Memphis on Wednesday night, but Nelson didn’t turn to Randolph. Instead, the coach opted for 11th-year reserve Mikki Moore.”
