The offseason has been a crazy one this year with all the changes and reports in the NBA. This offseason we heard an NBA player arrested and numerous NBA stars wanting to be traded right away. Zach Randolph was arrested last month but now he opens up that he was wrongfully arrested. Also, Carmelo Anthony's agent says that Carmelo could have been in Houston back in July, even with the Ryan Anderson contract.

Randolph wants to put arrest behind him

Zach Randolph has had an interesting offseason so far, which included leaving the Memphis Grizzlies for the Sacramento Kings and being arrested in Los Angeles.

Randolph was arrested in Los Angeles last month for marijuana possession with intent to sell. Initially, Randolph and his lawyer stated that the accusation was false and misleading. Randolph fans were worried as he could face a lifetime ban in the NBA. Ailene Voisin of the Sacramento Bee has reported that Randolph felt that he was wrongfully arrested that night. He added that a lot of things were said by different parties but none of them were true. When asked if he was expecting to be fined by the NBA he said no because he did nothing wrong.

Zach Randolph will only be facing 150 hours of community service. He said that he wanted to focus on basketball and that he no longer wants to talk about the incident.

He added that he just wants to move forward so that he will not be a distraction to his teammates and the organization as a whole. Randolph will enter his 18th NBA season with the Sacramento Kings next season. He has career averages of 16.8 points, 0.3 blocks, 0.7 steals, 1.8 assists, and 9.3 rebounds. Randolph has shot 47.1 percent from the field and 76.3 percent from the free throw line.

Knicks did not want to take on Anderson's contract

It was rumored that Carmelo Anthony would land with the Houston Rockets this offseason, but the Ryan Anderson contract was said to be the wall that made the deal impossible. Carmelo Anthony was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder a few days ago. Frank Isola of New York Daily News reported that Carmelo's agent said that the Houston trade was a done deal in early July.

He added that the only reason it did not push through was the Knicks not wanting to take on the huge contract of Anderson. Leon Rose also said that he respects and applauds the decision made by the Knicks by putting their NBA team in a good position and also doing right by Carmelo. He ended the conversation by saying that the OKC worked out and benefitted everybody.
