The Blazers on Sunday said they will not discipline forward Zach Randolph for his involvement in a street-racing incident in downtown Portland last week, during which two handguns were confiscated from his car. Both handguns were registered to Randolph, who was a passenger in the car that was pulled over by Portland police.
"During the past few years we have tried to hold our players to a higher standard of accountability and behavior," team President Steve Patterson said in a statement released by the team. "Even though Zach did not break any laws, his involvement in this matter showed poor judgment and he fully understands that he needs to take more responsibility for his actions. Zach has assured us that he is truly sorry for the embarrassment that this incident brought to the team, our fans and our community."
