Sixers’ Randolph exercises player option

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) – Philadelphia 76ers forward Shavlik
Randolph exercised the player option on his contract Friday for the 2007-08
season. Per club policy, terms of the contract were not released.

Randolph’s season was cut short last year when he suffered a fractured and
dislocated left ankle in practice November 30th. In 13 games before the
injury, he averaged 4.5 points and 4.2 rebounds.

In two seasons with Philadelphia, the 6-10, 240-pound forward has averaged
2.7 points and 2.7 rebounds in 70 games, including seven starts. Randolph was
an early-entry candidate for the 2005 NBA Draft out of Duke University. He
went undrafted and signed with the Sixers in August of 2005.
