“Do you see the Grizz trying to sign ZBO if he is bought out by Sacramento? Then retire at the end of the season.” Nothing has changed on this front since I last dismissed it. I continue to think a portion of the fan base hungers for it much more than the Grizzlies do. But it’s also worth noting that as long as Randolph is accepting of the status quo in Sacramento – and he seems to be – there’s no reason for the Kings to buy him out until after the trade deadline. They don’t have their draft pick this summer and really want to win this year. Randolph’s $11.7 million expiring contract could be a trade chip.
