Randolph is a lanky forward selected 14th overall in the 2008 NBA Draft. With an incredibly high ceiling, Randolph has been questioned for his work ethic and skinny frame.
At 6'10" and 210 pounds, Randolph blends length with athleticism and plays a solid all-around game. Though he has struggled to fit into Don Nelson's system, Randolph has the potential to become an elite forward.
With C Marcin Gortat and PF Brandon Bass both unhappy with their lack of playing time, it is plausible that the Orlando Magic might have some interest in Randolph. He would give the Magic a clear cut starting power forward.
This would allow Stan Van Gundy to slide Rashard Lewis back to small forward, where he is probably a better fit. The addition of Anthony Randolph would give Orlando a dominant stating five with flexibility.
Given the size of Randolph, the team could opt for a smaller lineup placing him at the center position to cover Dwight Howard when needed.
Anthony Randolph has drawn comparisons to Shawn Kemp for his ability to play like a shooting guard trapped in the body of a center. Randolph may have a lighter frame than Kemp but he seems more defensively advanced.
In his limited playing time this season, Randolph has put up 11.3 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 1.3 blocks and 0.8 steals per game. All this in just over 20 minutes a night.
If Randolph can develop into the player he has been advertised as, he could wind up on some future All-Star squads. I he can mesh with his new team's philosophy, Anthony Randolph could be a dynamic component on a championship contender.
