We Like Obscure NBA Players: Randy Woods

No video game reviews until life slows down behind-the-scenes. It’s been really hard for me to blog as of late. But, hey, I can resume this feature… even if it is half-assed. After all, I don’t have to post a long blurb about these guys, right?

So why did I choose this obscure player? It’s because the Clippers announcers have been talking about this guy briefly in the past week or so.

Thank you, Hoopedia, for the pic.

Anyway, Randy Woods was drafted 16th by the L.A. Clippers in the 1992 draft (ya know, some guy named Latrell Sprewell was available). I was listening to this draft on the radio and I remember the local broadcasters saying, “Hey, Elmore Spencer was available!” The Clippers were still able to get Elmore Spencer nine picks later but this is about Randy Woods.

Randy Woods averaged 27.3 PPG in his junior year in LaSalle. I guess he was tabbed to be a future star but he wasn’t going to get very many minutes behind Mark Jackson and Gary Grant. He never got going in three years with the Clippers. His best scoring season was in his second season with 3.6 PPG… and he never played more than 62 games in a season. He was a throw-in in the Antonio McDyess/Brent Barry-Rodney Rogers-Brian Williams trade to Denver… and he only played eight games with them.

There is very little information about Randy Woods after his last stint in the NBA. So if someone can help me out on this one, that would be great. I just know that he’s been mentioned by Ralph Lawler and Mike Smith over the past week than the previous decade-and-a-half.

    the Clippers didn’t want Sprewell b/c of something to do with having to support his family. I don’t know ….
