Former Nugget Mark Randall enters his second season in player development. In this role, Randall is responsible for working with and developing the skills of the Nuggets young players.
Randall is in his fifth season working with Nuggets management. Following his retirement in 1999, he served as college scout before working in player development last season.
Randall played in the NBA from 1991-95. He was drafted by the Chicago Bulls in the first round (No. 26 overall) of the 1991 NBA Draft. From 1991-93, he played for Chicago, Minnesota and Detroit. In 1993, he joined the Nuggets after being called up from the CBA. He was released by the Nuggets prior to the ’94-95 season, but rejoined them once again from the CBA midway through the season. That year, he played in two postseason games as the eighth-seeded Nuggets upset Seattle in the first round and took Utah to seven games in the second. He played in the CBA in ’96-97 and made the Nuggets roster following the lockout in 1999, but was waived without playing a game. For his NBA career, Randall averaged 2.6 ppg and 1.3 rpg.
The Edina, Minn. native enjoyed a storied career at the University of Kansas. He captained the 1991 Jayhawks squad that lost to Duke in the NCAA Championship game and was named to the All-Tournament Team. He redshirted his sophomore year, during which Kansas defeated Oklahoma to win the NCAA Championship. Randall finished his career as the sixth all-time leading scorer and rebounder in KU history and the all-time leader in field goal percentage in Big 8 history.
A 1986 graduate of Cherry Creek High School in Englewood, Colo., Randall earned both McDonald’s and Parade All-American honors as a prep. He is a competitive golfer with a 2 handicap, who last year played in the Colorado Open.
He and his wife, Kimberly, reside in Highlands Ranch with their two children, Samantha and Dylan.
