Zach Randolph available?

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.

Bogut said on media day that he would have forced a buyout if the Warriors would have traded him to a team he did not approve. He clarified Friday that he was not referring to the Rockets. “That was a different team, not Houston,” Bogut said, acknowledging that the Philadelphia 76ers were the other team that engaged the Warriors in serious trade talks. “I’m not saying I would have forced a buyout. It would have been an option.”

“It was important to play with the spirit of a tough minded team,” said Gibson. “Rondo is a tough minded guy; he loves his teammates. The whole night he was just chattering away, telling us what to do. You see when the scuffle happened he was the first one in there. It’s great to have guys like that having your back. The good teams know how to find a way to win games. That comes from having guys like D. Wade, Rondo, guys who have actually won before and are not afraid to take those shots. All during the game all I heard was Rondo’s voice constantly motivating guys, constantly telling guys where to go; even when D. Wade hit that big shot, Rondo was in there saying, ‘Stop celebrating, let’s get ready for the next play.’ Those are the things that help teams.”
