Kings’ Randolph avoids jail after LA arrest

Zach Randolph signed a two-year deal with the Kings this offseason.

Sacramento Kings forward Zach Randolph was sentenced to community service after being charged with marijuana possession and resisting arrest last month in Los Angeles, according to a report from the Associated Press.

“Randolph entered a no-contest plea and avoided jail time,” CBS Sports wrote. “Instead, he was sentenced to 150 hours of community service.”

Randolph, 36, signed a two-year, $24 million contract with the Kings this offseason. He had been a key player for the Memphis Grizzlies during the previous eight seasons.

Per CBS Sports: “Randolph’s initial arrest in August on suspicion of possession of marijuana with intent to sell is a felony in the state of California, but prosecutors instead charged him with misdemeanor drug possession. According to court records, Randolph was in possession of ‘more than 28.5 grams of marijuana or more than four grams of concentrated cannabis or both.'”
