Woj: Zach Randolph picks up option, signs contract extension

Posted By on Fri, Jun 27, 2014 at 11:11 AM

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports (and apparently confirmed by Randolph's agent Raymond Brothers), the Grizzlies and Randolph agreed to terms this morning:



This deal is probably the best the Grizzlies could do and still keep Randolph. The $16.5 million for next year is a lot of money, but the $20 million / 2 year extension after that is exactly the number I thought they should offer him.

Hard to argue with that deal. Next year, it makes getting rid of Tayshaun Prince a little bit more important but harder to actually do, but beyond 2014-15, the Randolph contract is at a price point that allows the Griz to re-sign Marc Gasol next summer (and let's not forget Mike Conley at some point).

Now let's hope they call Marc Gasol this afternoon and start talking about making that happen.
