Report: Grizzlies Say They Won’t Trade Zach Randolph This Season

8489916The Memphis Grizzlies have been rumored to do some sort of makeover this season ever since the new front office came in. The Grizzlies got under the luxury tax by trading Rudy Gay away. There have also been rumors about Zach Randolph being dealt, which makes no sense to me as I thought the Grizzlies still have a legitimate shot at the NBA championship.

The Grizzlies fans don’t have to worry about that, apparently. Ron Higgins and Ronald Tillery of the Memphis Commercial Appeal have the report:

The Grizzlies say they will not trade Zach Randolph this season.

The team has fielded calls proposing trades for its all-star, but Griz CEO Jason Levien said he told Randolph on Thursday that he won’t be dealt this season. NBA teams have been told the Grizzlies aren’t looking to move the 31-year-old forward, who averages 15.7 points and 11.7 rebounds.

Randolph’s career blossomed in Memphis. He had always been a 20-10 guy ever since he won the Most Improved Player award in 2004. But his stats didn’t translate to winning in Portland, New York, and the Clippers. The Clippers traded him away for Quentin Richardson when they drafted Blake Griffin and Randolph has prospered in Memphis since.

He went to the all-star game for the first time in 2010 and was selected to play in this year’s midseason exhibition. Randolph was also unstoppable in the 2011 NBA Playoffs, helping the Grizzlies upset the first-seeded Spurs in the first round and take the Oklahoma City Thunder to the full seven games.

It would’ve been a huge PR backlash for the Grizzlies if they traded away Randolph, who is a fan favorite in Memphis. With Gay gone, he’s the offensive centerpiece for the Grizzlies. He and Marc Gasol make a deadly duo in the frontcourt and I don’t see why the front office even thought of breaking up this potent team.

Nevertheless, the Grizzlies will try to rally back from the Gay trade. They beat the Warriors on Friday night, 99-93, so they could be on the way to that recovery process.
