Contract Details: 2 years/$35.2 million (with a player option on the second year)
Zach Randolph may be 32 years old, but he has the kind of game that translates to advanced years. He uses his bulky upper body to establish position inside and doesn't need to play above the rim.
It's a style that's been effective for him. Last season, he scored 15.4 points and grabbed 11.2 boards a game—one of just four players to post such averages in 2012-13. Dwight Howard, David Lee and Kevin Love were the others.
But Randolph has been in the rumor mill before, and Memphis has established a reputation of competing on a budget. They shipped Rudy Gay out shortly after signing him to a deal similar to Randolph's.
If backup power forward Ed Davis shows the potential to produce in his stead, don't be surprised if Memphis explores its options with Randolph in the trade market.
They'd have to dig deep, because finding a team willing to take on his contract could be tough.
Possible Destination: Washington
The Deal: Zach Randolph for Emeka Okafor and Jan Vesely
This would work for the Grizzlies because Okafor is on an expiring contract and he would fit Memphis's defense-first mentality.
As for the Wizards, they have an exciting young backcourt in John Wall and Bradley Beal, but lack the punch inside to provide balance. Randolph would command attention around the rim, creating a bit more space on the perimeter for the guards.
