SAN ANTONIO, TX - APRIL 15: Zach Randolph /

Sacramento Kings’ new big man, Zach Randolph, was recently arrested for possession of marijuana.

It has been reported by various sources that Sacramento Kings‘ big man, Zach Randolph, was arrested recently for marijuana possession with the intent to sell, although it is unclear whether he was actually trying to sell the substance. The arrest happened Wednesday night while the 16-year veteran was in Los Angeles, California.

There is also the news that Randolph has been released from jail as multiple media outlets have a picture of him walking out of the station after being bailed out.


It finally seemed like the Sacramento Kings were doing everything right. To begin their offseason, the Kings had an incredible draft which both the team’s fan base AND national media revered. Then, the Kings made some savvy moves in free agency in which they signed three veterans to mentor their youth and Bogdan Bogdanovic who is coming off a great campaign playing overseas.

Yes, it looked like the Kings’ offseason road was going to be smooth as the regular season is coming closer, but then today’s news came out.

Prior to Randolph’s arrest, the Kings’ roster was complete and ready to go, but now Randolph’s status is up in the air. What will the punishment be for his recent arrest? Will he still remain a member of the Sacramento Kings? More details have to be released before answering these questions.

Final Thoughts

Overall, it’s unfortunate to hear this news because there seems to be a possibility that Z-Bo may be facing huge consequences for his previous actions.

Prior to his arrest, Kings fans were excited that Randolph was going to be in Sacramento this upcoming season as he brings a veteran and physical presence to the team in which the youth at his position could have definitely needed going forward.

It looked like the Kings were going to avoid drama this offseason, but unfortunately, that isn’t the case anymore.
