LOS ANGELES — Sacramento Kings forward Zach Randolph has been sentenced to community service after being arrested for marijuana possession and resisting arrest following an incident last month at a Los Angeles housing project.

Los Angeles city attorney’s office spokesman Frank Mateljan says Randolph entered a no contest plea Wednesday.

He says Randolph was sentenced to 150 hours of community service and may ask for the charges to be vacated if he stays out of trouble for a year.

Randolph’s attorney didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment, but he has previously called the allegations “false and misleading.”

Randolph, a 16-year NBA veteran, spent eight seasons with the Memphis Grizzlies before signing with the Sacramento Kings in July.
