Players in the NBA move around a lot. It is rare to see someone stay with one team their entire career, like Kobe Bryant did with the Lakers, and Stephen Curry will likely do with the Warriors.

As a result, players sometimes move on from a team after a long time and just look out of place anywhere they go. So, let’s look at four players that never looked quite right in a Kings jersey.

4. Zach Randolph 

Zach Randolph played his final NBA game in a Kings uniform. He was part of a move that also brought Vince Carter and George Hill to Sacramento to provide some veteran leadership for their young players.

Randolph was solid, averaging 14.5 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 2.2 assists over 59 games to finish his career. Nevertheless, the Kings jersey looked odd on him. 

The forward just came off his eighth season with the Memphis Grizzlies. In Memphis, he made two All-Star appearances and was named to the All-NBA Third Team in 2011. He was one of the most important players on the team at that time and the Grizzlies even retired his number. 

Seeing him in a different jersey after that just felt strange.
