Stein: How will you make the decision on what to do this summer contract-wise? Randolph: I’d like to be here. I’d like to retire here. You never know. If I’ve got to make some sacrifices to be here, I would. I still can play. I can still help a team out. I want to win a championship. I’ve made all the money in the world. I just want to win. I don’t know yet [about opting in or opting out], but Memphis is my home. If they trade me tomorrow, I’m here. I just bought a new house. My daughters go to school [in Memphis]. That’s my home.

What tweaks will you make? Joerger: I hope that we'll play a little bit faster and get the ball up and down the floor a little bit quicker and play with a quicker pace, and not for the reason of getting a quick shot unless something presents itself at the rim. But by getting up and using a larger part of the shot clock, we hope to be able to move the ball more and then attack inside with Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph or creating better opportunities for drives with Mike Conley.

The team is led at the top of the rotation by Marc Gasol, Zach Randolph and Mike Conley, while veteran forward Tony Allen serves as one of the lead dogs in the locker room. But for the team to take the next step, Joerger believes the growth will need to come from the team’s younger role players. “For us to grow from within Jerryd Bayless needs to have a nice season for us,” Joerger says. “Quincy Pondexter needs to have a nice season for us. Those guys need to make shots from the perimeter and for that to happen they’re going to have to be on the floor and be consistent.” HoopsWorld

Any NBA player who is on a team’s roster during any game in Memphis has to pay a flat tax bill of $2,500 for that game. (The same goes for NHL players who pop into Nashville to face the Predators.) The tax applies to a maximum of three games, so that no player pays more than $7,500 per calendar year, Klempner says. The flat rates apply to each player, regardless of his individual income level, and they also apply to Memphis players; Marc Gasol, Zach Randolph, and Tony Wroten all wrote $7,500 checks to the state of Tennessee for last season.
