A member of yet another trade, Anthony Randolph's wayward NBA career continues. The former lottery pick, who has already played for four teams in six seasons, can now add stops with two new teams to his NBA passport, though he will likely not see the floor for either. The Chicago Bulls, who acquired Randolph last month from the Denver Nuggets, have traded him to the Orlando Magic, who plan to release him, the league announced Monday.

The move allows the Bulls to shed Randolph's $1.8 million salary, while the Magic will pick up second-round picks from Chicago in 2015 and 2016. In return, the Bulls receive the draft rights to Milovan Rakovic.
The Bulls have had a busy offseason, signing Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol, bringing over highly-touted international prospect Nikola Mirotic, and trading two first-round picks to acquire former Creighton star Doug McDermott.
Randolph has career averages of 7.1 points and 4.3 rebounds per game.
