Anthony Randolph will be out in his Real Madrid contract next season is looking to return to the NBA but feels he should take the job only if he has a defined role.
“Now I fit in perfect, right?” Randolph said with a smile.
“To keep it real, I got knocked down from my pedestal,” Randolph said during the Eurobasket group stage in Finland.
“I had to go back to the basics. It was a different experience. It helped me realize why I really started playing basketball again.”
Randolph believes he’s better suited for the NBA than he was in 2008 when he was drafted by the Golden State Warriors.
“I won’t go back in the NBA just to say, ‘Oh, I’m back in the NBA,'” said Randolph
“I feel like I have to know that I’m going to have a role and that I can help the team and that I have an opportunity to play. I don’t want to go sit on the bench, I want to play. I love playing basketball.”
