*While the NBA is on strike it looks like the players are having a hard time staying out of trouble.
Memphis Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph (pictured) is in a situation after police searched his Oregon home to investigate the alleged assault of a drug dealer.
The victim told police he came to the home of the basketball player Saturday morning to sell some weed. But he was met with the ends of pool sticks when three people beat him following a dispute over the price of the smoke.
He was not severely hurt and was released from the hospital after being treated for head and face injuries.
Randolph was home at the time of the beating. Police also say evidence backs up the victim’s testimony.
Speaking of the NBA, The Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant might be starring in a film soon. According to reports, the untitled movie will have a basketball subplot and will go into production in September. The full length feature will be shot either in Oklahoma City or Baton Rouge, La.
In other sports news, the Oakland Raiders used their third-round pick in the NFL’s supplemental draft to bring in former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor. But he won’t be eligible to play until the team’s sixth game of the season, which is the number of games he would have lost out on had he returned to Ohio State.
As a result of the pick, Oakland forfeits its third-round selection in the 2012 draft.
