With the Phoenix Suns’ season over, it’s time to take a fond look back on the 2013-14 season and examine how everyone performed. As the Suns became just the fourth team in NBA history to win 48 games and miss the playoffs, there’s plenty of optimism to be had for this young team’s future. So far we’ve covered Archie Goodwin‘s first season in the NBA, but today we take a look at veteran big man Shavlik Randolph.
Unless you followed the Phoenix Suns closely this season, you probably have no idea who the hell Shavlik Randolph is. In his seven seasons in the NBA, Randolph has played for six teams and aside from his rookie year with the Philadelphia 76ers, has never played more than 16 games in a season. The Suns signed Randolph to add some veteran experience and influence to a frontcourt composed of rookie Alex Len and sophomore Miles Plumlee. He got limited run in his 14 games with Phoenix, but there’s a slight chance the Suns actually keep him around for a little while longer.
