WT- MEM exploring randolph trade 

Post#1 » by s0nicm0use » Tue Jan 8, 2013 10:08 pm

The Memphis Grizzlies have held preliminary trade talks involving Zach Randolph.

The Sacramento Kings are one team that have engaged the Grizzlies on Randolph, according to a source.


didnt see this anywhere else but damn memphis really doesnt want to pay the tax they really seem vulnerable and desperate now i wouldnt be suprised to see one of randolph or gay traded by the deadline

I feel sorry for Grizzlies fans, they have a solid team in which they are possible contenders, yet their management is stripping them down, essentially the opposite of us where our management is trying to pile on talent on a mediocre pool of assets we have.

They're looking to move one of them, preferably Gay. Moving Zbo would be a big step back for them.

Honestly, I'm sick of losing and being brainwashed with the garbage that is put out by this franchise. I'd trade for both ZBo and Gay and take on their contracts. Flame away rebuilders.

The sale in Memphis should have never went through the new owners are basically broke and can't afford a team very much like Jordon buying the Bobcats.

They are definitely not moving both of them. Hopefully raps can swing something with Calderons expiring.
