From LATimes.com (http://www.latimes.com/sports/la-sp-clippers-randolph2-2009jul02,0,238192.story)

Clearing the way for No. 1 pick Blake Griffin, the Clippers have agreed to trade power forward Zach Randolph to Memphis for former Clipper Quentin Richardson, The Times learned today.

Because of salary-cap rules, the deal can't be completed until next week.

Pretty interesting deal for both sides

Grizzlies have a strong starting 5 now, Conley-May-Gay-Randolph-Gasol

But we all know Zach doesnt really make his team better and isnt known for winning, plus that contract of his isnt great.

As for the Clippers, im sure they couldve gotten something more if they were to trade Zach. But at least it clears up that log jam they have upfront and they get rid of his contract

The more I think about it, the more I realize that Richardson is a good fit for this Clipper team.

They needed a SF like you wouldn't believe and they also need scoring.

Q Rich provides both of those things and they gave up only a player that they didnt need.

The Clippers have cap-space now, so I hope they go after Trevor Ariza hard now. If they can't get him, make Quinton Ross the second option. Anyways... B. Davis, E. Gordon, T. Ariza, B. Griffin, C. Kaman w/ M. Taylor, Q. Richardson, A. Thornton, S. Novak & M. Camby off the bench would be looking pretty nice.

Wow it actually happened.

Stupid Grizzlies gave us hell when tried to unload Zach on them saying we had to take back Marko.

But now they take just Q, when he's not on our team :sigh:

Oh well.

I think Zach can work in Memphis since he's got some legit defensive big men playing next to him.

dee279
07-01-2009, 11:00 PM
Umm.... Not much to say. Memphis just got better no matter what all of you think of Zach Randolph. He is a good player and he fits well onside of Gasol and with scores like Rudy and OJ, Great deal for Memphis. Clippers probably would have taken anything for him so whatever for them. I guess they better hope Griffin plays up to his potential.

Why are the clippers dumb for this trade? Yes, Randolph is a very, very talented player. But he's a team CANCER and as good as he is with his guaranteed 20 pts, 10 rebs a night, Randolph WON'T make your TEAM better, especially in the Clippers' situation. Not only did they dump a big team cancer, they freed up room for Griffin, as well as dumped a huge salary. I know Q-Rich has a big salary, but at least they could use richardson better than randolph granted that they're stacked with big men. Richardson won't kill your team like Randolph

This is just another addition to the never ending bone head moves by the Clippers.

Zach was far and away their best player last year. I get the need to save money but Camby or Kaman should have been moved instead.

Seriously dude.. You are just reciting the company line here. Zach was in no way a cancer to the Clipps last year. He was their best player and emotional leader and played harder than anyone on the squad. I rode the Clipps to many upset victories last year and I have Zach and Eric Gordon to thank for all the nice trips I'm taking this summer.

Zach was on his best behavior this year.. Except for the DUI
On the court his play and attitude were exemplary.people can change

the reason why this is a "good trade"
is becuz even though Zach played good for us it didnt amount to anything (which is apparently always the case with him)

we unloaded his contract...and got richardson whose contract expires after next season....
THUS
making us "players" in 2010 since marcus cambys contract is up ...ricky davis
gives us atleast 20 mil to offer someone i believe...

Even so, the logic holds. The Z-Bo acquisition was a zero impact move for the Clips, and it really accomplished nothing more than burdening their payroll with a horrible, horrible contract. Even if they can't get one of the top marquee players in 2010, that FA pool is so deep that if they move wisely, they'll be able to put together a much better foundation that's built for the future.

Solid move.

Getting rid of Z-Bo is always a good thing. Can't believe another team was sucker enough to take him.

Ironically, that move for them was the equivalent this summer of the Nuggets dumping Camby off on them last summer. For totally different reasons, but with similar results in terms of creating breathing room on the salary front.

If the clips can sign an extra decent backup PF/C just because Camby and Kaman have been injury-proned, this could work out for them

JOSKOMANG4
07-02-2009, 11:06 AM
For the Grizzles.. they add a veteran PF who has shown to be a 20/10 guy a night.. the only thing that sucks about Randolph is his contract..

For the Clippers.. Q can be a nice spark off the bench for the Clipp joint. He can also help groom young SF Thornton. Also cap relief.. Q's deal ends at the end of the season.. thus taking over 9 mill off their cap for next season. Oh and btw.. Blake Griffin becomes their starting PF

Great deal for both teams...

I do believe now the Grizzles will focus on bringing in a veteran PG... and I'm hoping PLEADING for Andre Miller.. With the acquisition of Andre Miller and Zach Randolph.. The Grizzles will be in the playoff hunt next season. Not to mention.. what Mike Conley can learn from a veteran aspect.

Lineup outlook:

C: Marc Gasol/Hamed Haddadi / H Thabeet*
PF: Zach Randolph/Darrell Arthur/Hakim Warrick*
SF: Rudy Gay/ D. Carroll*
SG: O.J. Mayo/Greg Buckner/Sam Young*
PG: Andre Miller/Mike Conley/Marko Jaric


Definitely playoff potential.

Not a bad move for either team. Brings a potential allstar in Randolph to Memphis. A player they need. If he doesnt **** up, could be a great move. With Griffin getting more minutes, better for the Clippers. But still, no respect for the Clippers and the playoffs. I looked at their roster last year and they looked to be in contention. Three young stars in Thornton, Kaman and Gordon. Add vets Camby and Baron, and now sub #1 Griffin for FatZach and the teams roster looks close to the best in the league. I give credit to Dunleavy as GM for putting this team together, but no credit to Dunleavy as coach who won't even get them to the playoffs. This roster anywhere else in North America with a different coach would be contending in the West year in, year out. Straighting up Clippers!
