Is this the year Anthony Randolph lives up to his potential? (Photo: Chris Young, The Canadian Press) Anthony Randolph was originally drafted 14th overall in the 2008 NBA Draft by the Golden State Warriors. At that time, DraftExpress projected the 6’10 forward/center to be a player somewhere between Rudy Gay (best case) and Tim Thomas (worst case). Not a bad place to fall in terms of talent in the NBA. So far though, Randolph has failed to deliver on that promise. After flashes of brilliance in his stints with the New York Knicks and Minnesota Timberwolves - including a career-best performance of 31 points and 13 rebounds, Randolph signed a multi-year contract with the Denver Nuggets. He only appeared in 39 games for the Nuggets in 2012-13 under old head coach, George Karl. However he played in five games against the Warriors in the 2013 NBA Playoffs and at times during the series he looked to be Denver’s most reliable big man. With Brian Shaw at the helm, Randolph may have an opportunity to compete for minutes as Shaw has deemed all positions up for grabs on this roster. Randolph will have plenty of competition for playing time as the Nuggets are well-stocked with big men. JaVale McGee, Kenneth Faried, Timofey Mozgov, J.J. Hickson and Darrell Arthur are all on this roster and they are all talented bigs. The collection of power forwards and centers that the Nuggets possess could indicate a future trade in which the team finally cashes in on the assets it has been hoarding. Randolph could be among those in danger of being dealt depending on how he performs in training camp and if he can fall into Shaw’s favor. Randolph is an athletic, young big man with a reasonable contract and that will be attractive to many suitors around the league. With Shaw’s offense focusing on halfcourt sets and getting the bigs involved, Randolph has a great chance to prove his skills this season. The competition for minutes at the big men positions are one of the many storylines to watch throughout preseason.
