Well, good news, you’re in the right place.
I’ve done some research and have found players who played for both the Kings and the Trail Blazers.
Zach Randolph, often referred to as “Z-Bo,” was widely recognized for his scoring and rebounding prowess. He played college basketball at Michigan State University before being selected 19th overall by the Portland Trail Blazers in the 2001 NBA Draft.
Randolph had stints with the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Clippers but truly flourished when he joined the Memphis Grizzlies in 2009. He became a central figure in the Grizzlies’ “Grit and Grind” era alongside Marc Gasol, Tony Allen, and Mike Conley. His toughness and post-up game became hallmarks of the team’s identity.
During his time with the Grizzlies, Randolph was a two-time NBA All-Star (2010, 2013) and helped lead the Grizzlies to the Western Conference Finals in the 2012-13 season. He ranks first in Memphis Grizzlies’ franchise history for total rebounds.

Jim Jackson entered the NBA when he was selected 4th overall by the Dallas Mavericks in the 1992 NBA Draft.
In Dallas, he quickly showcased his scoring prowess, becoming one of the young pillars of the team alongside Jason Kidd and Jamal Mashburn. However, despite the promise, the trio was short-lived due to various factors, including injuries and internal dynamics.
What followed for Jackson was a journeyman’s career, as he played for 12 different NBA teams, which included stints with the 76ers, Warriors, Trail Blazers, and Rockets, among others. Despite the frequent relocations, Jackson consistently proved his worth on the court, often providing a scoring punch and veteran presence.
Jackson Key Stats

- 5+ Assists/Game Season (Nets, Warriors)
