Kings forward Zach Randolph reached a deal with prosecutors in Los Angeles to avoid jail time stemming from an arrest in August, TMZ reported Wednesday. Randolph was due in court Thursday to face misdemeanor charges of possession of marijuana and resisting arrest and could have been sentenced to up to one year in jail if convicted on both charges. According to TMZ, Randolph will plead no contest to resisting arrest and the marijuana charge will be dismissed in exchange for 150 hours of community service. If Randolph completes the community service and has no run-ins with the law of the next 12 months, the resisting arrest conviction will be erased from his record.

Rasheed Wallace says he knows “for a fact” Zach Randolph is no drug dealer — despite getting busted with more than 2 pounds of weed … telling TMZ Sports Z-Bo just knows how to throw a party. We spoke with Sheed about the NBA star’s recent L.A. arrest for possession of marijuana with intent to sell … and Wallace laughed off any notion that Randolph was trying to slang. “It seems to be — no matter who you are — the bigger the paycheck, the bigger the party,” Sheed says. “I know for a fact he ain’t no dope dealer.”

The bid package will include virtual reality tours of event spaces and testimonials from team officials, local political leaders and former Kings legends.
Another topic at the first practice back was the prime topic in the country right now: Gun control. In the wake of the latest massacre in Florida, some high schoolers who survived the shooting have spoken out loudly about the issue, drumming up more conversation and potential change than at any other point. Kerr, who is passionate about the issue, was asked about the ongoing dialogue. “I think it’s phenomenal,” Kerr said. “What those kids are doing is heroic, it’s heartfelt and I think it’s the beginning of some change. I really believe that. I’m amazed every time I see on TV or online, it’s heartbreaking but inspiring all at once.
“I feel very encouraged. We’ve got a generation that’s grown up with these school shootings and mass shootings and they’re fed up. Historically, it’s a young generation that has to initiate change. You think about the Vietnam war. “All the old white guys who kept sending the troops over to fight this ridiculous war, it was all the young people who protested, had to make change, communicate. It’s the young people in the country now who are going to create the change we need in terms of how we handle gun violence and how we do our best to curb it. It’s amazing to watch.”
