Report: Magic, Bulls agree to trade for Anthony Randolph


 

According to a report by USA Today’s Sam Amick, the Orlando Magic and Chicago Bulls have agreed to a trade. According to Amick, the Magic will receive forward Anthony Randolph, along with two future second round picks and cash. The Magic are expected to waive Randolph. Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel added that the Magic will most likely send the draft rights to Milovan Rakovic to the Bulls. 

Randolph, 25, was drafted by the Golden State Warriors 14th overall in 2008. After a couple of disappointing years with the Warriors, Randolph was traded to the New York Knicks, in 2010. Midway through the 2010-11 season, Randolph was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves. 

Prior to the 2012-13 season, Randolph signed with the Denver Nuggets. Earlier this summer, Randolph was traded on draft night to the Chicago Bulls along with Doug McDermott. 

In his six year career, Randolph has averaged 7.1 points and 4.3 rebounds per game. 

If the Magic do indeed waive Randolph, the team will owe him just over $1.8 million this season.

    Hold on a sec. His per 36 numbers are actually pretty good, way better than Dedmons and he’s the same age. He can play at the center position and his blocks per 36 are up there. Is there something about him that makes us not want to keep him and dump Dedmon instead. Is there a big difference in salary or some aspect of his game that’s a negative? I don’t know much about him as a player.

      To be honest, I’m not sure. I think there’s a certain level of familiarity that they like with Dedmon at this point. Plus, I’d imagine they view Dewayne as more of a “true” center, compared to Randolph being more fit to play the four.
