Z-Bo wants a contract extension. Heís entering the final year of a deal that will pay him $17.3 million this season, and after making the All-Star Game and leading the Grizzlies to a resurgent 40-win campaign in his first run with the team, Z-Bo wants to tack another three years and $65 million onto his earnings. Thatís the same structured deal Pau Gasol signed with the L.A. Lakers last year, and the same offer Carmelo Anthony is letting sit on the table from the Denver Nuggets. read more http://dimemag.com/2010/09/zach-randolph-wants-pau-gasol-money-and-he-should-get-it/

Fun fact: Zach Randolph hasn't played for a 50 win team since he was 21 years old.

Fun fact: Zach Randolph has never played for a 50 win team in which he was a regular starter.

He's a good player, but he's never done it for a good team. He doesn't deserve max money.

^ this, people need to learn to look at stats within context. Pau Gasol can put up 16 & 10 but he helps his team win. Z-Bo puts up 20 & 11 and does it on horrible teams. He is not a winning player. Just like David Lee ( and i love the guy) but he put up 20, 12 & 4 for a 29 win team.

Bosh had NO ONE else, and Zbo had Gay and OJ Mayo who are big time scorers as well.

If Zbo was on Toronto he would have put up 25ppg 12rpg....(and he's done that before on a bad team). If Zach played a lick of defense and passed the ball like he did for the two weeks he was under D'Antoni system....he would be a top 5 PF.

I'd would not give Zach Randolph a multi-year contract for any amount of money, and that's not even hyperbole. As soon as he gets paid he will put on 35 pounds, take games off, and kill whatever franchise who is stupid enought to pay him. On the court repcusions would be bad enough, but this is a guy who is linked to financing a major drug opperation in St. Louis.

I hope that the Grizz pay him so they can take the place of the Wolves as the leauge laughing stock. $65 Million, HA!

Its funny you mention that, he hasnt been to the playoffs in years so what exactly are you measuring him by? The last time he was in the playoffs he was basically the only reason Portland came back from that 3-1 deficit to Dirk and Nash. I remember that series as being his official coming out party (even though the stats supported that he shouldve been getting more PT long before then), still that was a long time ago, Z-Bo showed such promise and potential before the injuries and attitude problems showed up.

Z-Bo the black hole doesn't deserve a contract like this. Gasol and Bosh are both better PFs. Sometimes you wonder how bad contracts are made? Well, here's the answer if it goes through.

IndyRealist
09-28-2010, 04:40 PM
Just because a guy gets 21/12 (rounded) does not make him a max player. How is he getting those points? Is he efficient? Is he passing out of double teams?

He has major off-court issues. Not "got in the a fight at a strip club" kind of issues, but "federal task force" kind of issues.

He does not play defense. At all. A starting PF making over $12M/yr should LUCK into at least a block per game.

Not worth max money. Not worth more than $12M/yr, with a clause that says that if he is convicted of so much as jaywalking his contract is void.

^^ This guy is no were near $20m.

He is being extremely unreasonable. He had his first good season, but it wasn't THAT good either. Imo, he should get only about $12m tops. This was the first time he show'd maturity throughout a season, but it might not last either, which is why they should get him for little. And even if he wants to get traded, no one will really want him, bringing down his price even more.

I am cracking up at all the people who think Randolph is on the same level as Gasol or Bosh:rolleyes:

If you have watched bosh play a lot of games,you know hes got a lot of holes in his game.Great #3 to have on ur team though

Zach, what are you smoking?

You're worth $10-12m a year MAX.

Randolph is a real good player but he defiantly doesn't deserve that contract. He isn't even the best player on that team Gasol is. It's not like if he goes to the open market they would be competing with anybody for him I really doubt the knicks or nets would be interested.

Zach Randolph was an absolute beast last year. I saw him outrebound teams single handedly in the 1st quarter, as well as put together double doubles in less than 10 min.

Randolph seems to have matured, and is less of a black hole as he used to be. He also is the perfect player for this team with his "blue collar" work ethic. Pau could never resinate with the city of memphis like z-bo can because he is soft.

With all this being said, i would not give him more than 13 mil. a year, as boozer got.
Hopefully we can keep z-bo, OJ, and Marc, with the contracts of Jaric and Conley coming off the books next year. If we have to get rid of one, i say OJ because it is easy to find undersized sg in the NBA, but i do love OJ's game.

I believe Boozer got $75 mil over 5 years.

the reason zbo is always traded is because no one thinks he's worth the money he is gonna demand

Z Bo is a liability on the defensive end. He isnt smart and agile enough to help defense. Just like Maggette, Z Bo is a good and instant scorer, and Maggette never asks for anything close to max contract.

I dont think Zbo deserves that kinda money but i can't blame him for asking... He probably figures if they gave Rudy Gay a max deal (who def didnt deserve it) then he should get that kind of money as well..

lol waaaay to much. I mean he just doesnt deserve that kind of money, he made a All-Star game and now he thinks his all that? lol and i literally laughed out loud at some people who say his at the same level as Pau and Bosh! I mean Z-BO is not even a top 5 PF?! His not even CLOSE to Pau and no way his better than Bosh.

Prefer he and his agent come up with a more reasonable amount(like the $12M mentioned here over and over again) BUT if that is not accomplished; let him go in order to keep Marc. Marc will be a RFA next year and I'd much rather spend the $$$$$ on him. And I am glad Heisley woke up and quit dicking around with the rookies.

Honestly if I'm the Grizzlies I either first which is the better option in my opinion is keep Marc Gasol by signing him to an extension and get rid of Zack or vice versa. Option B is try and keep both by balancing the contracts out both at the same time or Option C is lose both. Honestly for the Grizzlies its way better to keep Gasol in the long run.

Hes a beast but thats damn high...The PF position in the NBA is weak right now.Hes better then Bosh and probably in the same area as Gasol.Still id be worried giving Randolph that much considering his less then perfect past behavior

:laugh: No offense guys, but he is nowhere near Pau or Bosh.

Offense hes just as good. Bosh is a willing passer. Defensively at least Bosh will try, ZBo doesn't.

I'm done here... Spreadeagle clearly knows Zbo isn't as good, but just wants to get the Heat fans angry or something.

Yup, thats what i was thinking. I would think they would rather keep Marc too, the guy is a beast.

lmao. If I am Memphis I look him in the eye and I say... Chris bosh just signed a deal that starts at 14 mil a year...and you aren't as good. GTFOH.qft

OT: I think LBJ, Wade, and Bosh might have set the bar on what a max contract might look like in the new CBA (or come close to).

Memphis should only do it if someone is willing to sign and trade ZBo with them. Otherwise, this guy is high. Memphis would do alright with Thabeet Gasol Gay Mayo and Conley.

David Lee got 80 mil. and he dont even know the meaning of defense.plus the knicks had one of the worst records.

The big mistake was giving Gay such a massive contract when you have Randolph, Mayo and Gasol all coming up as free agents? All three will use Gay's contract as a bargaining position and Heisley will have problems keeping more than two of those players with Memphis' finances.

Lee got a 6 year deal starting at $10.8 mil.

Lee can pass the ball and doesn't need the ball to score.

Can't say that about Zach.
