Anthony Randolph Interested In NBA Return If He Has Defined Role

Sep 17, 2017 12:37 PM

The NBA game is much more suited to the skills of Anthony Randolph than it was in 2008 when he was drafted by the Golden State Warriors.

"Now I fit in perfect, right?" Randolph said with a smile.

Randolph has become a quality perimeter shooter and has also gained over 30 pounds since 2008.

 

"To keep it real, I got knocked down from my pedestal," Randolph said during the Eurobasket group stage in Finland. "I had to go back to the basics. It was a different experience. It helped me realize why I really started playing basketball again."

"I think he should be in the NBA," said Goran Dragic, who came into the NBA the same year as Randolph. "It's just life. He said he made some choices that maybe he would do differently, and I still believe he can make it. He is a huge addition to our team. He can play multiple positions -- 3, 4, 5. He gives us a different type of game. In the past, we never had a guy you can throw an alley-oop to, can switch everything, can take the big guys out, shoot the mid-range or a 3. He's a complete player."

Randolph can make 3s, switch screens and catch lobs, which has put him back onto the NBA radar.

"I won't go back in the NBA just to say, 'Oh, I'm back in the NBA,'" said Randolph, who has an NBA out in his Real Madrid contract next season. "I feel like I have to know that I'm going to have a role and that I can help the team and that I have an opportunity to play. I don't want to go sit on the bench, I want to play. I love playing basketball."

NBA Execs Split On Michael Porter Jr., Luka Doncic As Top Prospect Of 2018

Jun 23, 2017 6:36 PM

Michael Porter Jr. and Luka Doncic are expected to be the top two picks of the 2018 NBA Draft.

Porter is an elite athlete at 6'10 with a tremendously fluid and polished set of offensive skills.

Doncic is one of the most highly regarded international prospects in basketball history who can shoot, make plays off the dribble and pass.

The league is essentially divided at this point between Porter and Doncic as the best prospect. Many observers believed Porter or Doncic would have been the top overall prospect if they were in the 2017 draft class over Markelle Fultz.

Apr 29, 2017 11:05 AM

Real Madrid secured a Final Four berth with its second road win in less than 48 hours against Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul on Friday night.

Luka Doncic was named MVP for Game 4 of the EuroLeague Playoffs. It marked the 18-year old's second consecutive MVP of the round award, after he shared the honor 48 hours earlier in Game 3.

Doncic has won the honor four times this season, second to only reigning EuroLeague MVP Nando De Colo of CSKA Moscow, who won six.

Doncic scored 11 points to go with 7 assists and 5 rebounds. He made his only two-point shot attempt, hit 1 of 4 from downtown and went 6 for 8 from the free throw line in addition to collecting 1 steal and 6 fouls drawn for a performance index rating of 21, the highest among all players in the two Game 4 contests.

Doncic is expected to be one of the top two picks in the 2018 NBA Draft.
