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.

Ben Bolch: Multiple teams have inquired with Clippers about Blake Griffin offering various packages but team has no active interest in deal, per source. Clippers remain reluctant to part with a cornerstone of franchise and a player who, at 26, was having possibly best season before injury.
Ethan Sherwood Strauss: Asked Steph Curry if he expects to have a voice in major free agency decisions: “I expect they’ll ask me about what a potential move, whatever it is, how it’ll impact the team, the chemistry, and this and that. But at the end of the day that’s not my job. If it was we probably wouldn’t have the team we have right now. I’ll stick to shooting, playing with the teammates that we have, and hopefully whatever that means down the stretch, Bob and front office continue to do the job they’ve been doing”
Tom Orsborn: A full recovery expected for Manu Ginobili, Gregg Popovich says. Asked how his spirits are, Pop says, “As 1 would expect, he’d rather be playing.” #Spurs
