Coaching change or not, there are rival executives out there who believe that the Grizzlies will ultimately be forced to look hard at trading Mayor of Memphis, Zach Randolph, if they want to commission a serious shake-up that leads to a roster infusion of youth and athleticism. As shocking to the system as that would be for many Memphians, Randolph is the player on the roster most likely to fetch a difference-maker in return. So we have to keep a lookout for that as well, should the Grizz decide they need to make a more drastic move than their interest in Mario Chalmers we reported earlier this week.

Multiple league sources have told CSNNE.com in recent weeks that the Celtics are focused on landing an All-Star caliber talent in the frontcourt. That makes sense when you consider how guard-dominant the Celtics were this season and how that had a negative impact on the team’s rebounding and, to a lesser degree, their defense as a whole.
Mark Medina: Not surprising: De’Aaron Fox plans to work out for Lakers and Sixers. Lakers’ workout likely to happen mid-June (week of 11-17)
Ryan Ward: From an interview I did w/ Kareem 2 weeks ago on Lakers role: “I am going to stop in to see him [Magic] in the next couple of weeks & maybe work out something where I can help out the team. We’ll see if something makes sense.” #Lakers
