NBA Trade Rumors: Grizzlies Reportedly Offering Zach Randolph for Pau Gasol

In one of the juiciest offseason rumors to emerge thus far, the Memphis Grizzlies have reportedly offered to trade Zach Randolph and another piece to the Los Angeles Lakers for Pau Gasol, according to Peter Vecsey of the

This is a fascinating development on many fronts.

First of all, two playoff teams don't just swap All-Star power forwards every day. This would send seismic shock waves throughout the Western Conference, as the Lakers are a perennial title contender, while the Grizzlies have been a scary dark-horse contender each of the last two seasons.

Both clearly needed some retooling after early playoff exits, but a potential trade of this magnitude—particularly on the Grizzlies' end—was highly unexpected.

Randolph has had plenty of off-court issues in the past, but he was an unstoppable force in the 2011 playoffs, when he averaged 22.2 points and 10.8 rebounds per game. He suffered a torn knee ligament that hindered him this past season, but at just 30 years of age, he likely has years of productive basketball ahead of him.

Gasol has been equally valuable in Los Angeles, helping lead the Lakers to consecutive titles in 2008-09 and 2009-10. Although he has become a scapegoat for their recent troubles, Gasol has averaged at least 17.4 points and 9.6 rebounds per game in all four of his seasons with the Lakers.

If this deal goes through, Gasol would return to his former team and play alongside his brother, Marc, while Randolph would form a menacing frontcourt duo in L.A. with Andrew Bynum.

Nothing has been made official yet, but we will have all the latest updates for you when they become available.

doubt lakers accept.

Maybe if they make it a three way that sends Zbo to hell and someting good to lakers it would be intriguing.

Of course id be happy to have both gasols on a team. then trade Ballhogay for Igoudala and its a great team.

from my prospective gasol doesn't even want to be in LA anymore after all this drama, if he could of picked one team, i think it will be this one. How fun would it be to be starting along side your bro? Gasol/Gasol/Gay/Mayo/Conley is pretty dangerous if they can sign a couple players too.

Maybe Bleacher report isn't all that reliable most the time but this could very easily be a real possibility.

It makes a lot of sense for both teams who are each in need of a roster shakeup.
Zach Randolph has a very aggressive old school style who plays the boards relentless. He will not let the presence of Andrew Bynum effect his game. He just like Gasol, can open up his mid-range game when needed as well.
Pau would get the chance to return to a city that has much love for him and also a chance to play with his brother which would form a very nice duo upfront for the Grizz. I can see them both taking the game seriously and play at a very competitive level.
LA is also seeking a move up into the 1st round which could also represent the other piece that could be in the deal.

This could also help LA more in finding a trade partner for MWP in acquiring the pick which they could use possibly to move up even higher.

Zbo is coming off of knee surgery, is owed more money... How on earth does this make sense for the Lakers?

Better playoff performer?

Last time I checked Pau has 2 championships, and his playoff stats are superior.

The only thing Zbo has ever done better in the playoffs is outrebound Pau by +0.2, and shoot a higher clip from the line.

Pau's also played in 101 playoff games to Zbo's 28.

and his former stats were superior, but last playoffs, he wasn't good, so lets just look at the recent performances, and he is frail in the playoffs and not aggressive enough.... and also, you guys are shopping him like crazy, getting Zbo would be more than enough compensation to back.

And Zbo was good this past post season? Nah gimme Pau, better player over the course of their respective careers, without question, and I'm a fan of Zbo.

Again... Zbo is 1 year younger than Pau, has more money on his contract, and is coming off of knee surgery. Why wouldn't LA just keep Pau who's contract expires a year earlier and is owed less money? Even if you switched the two, do you think it makes LAL any better? Realize that Zbo isn't going to get as many shots, and considering he shoots a lower % than Pau by nearly 5% over their careers, how exactly does he make LAL better than they would be with Pau?

The Lakers are trying to shed salary, in the summer of 2014 they'll have nobody under contract, and that summer also happens to be one of the biggest ever in terms of free agency.

If the Lakers trade for Zbo, he'll be making 16.5 mill in 2014-2015 at the age of 33-34. He won't be worth it.

Even if you switched the two, do you think it makes LAL any better? Realize that Zbo isn't going to get as many shots, and considering he shoots a lower % than Pau by nearly 5% over their careers, how exactly does he make LAL better than they would be with Pau?

I would take Zach. He is the better PF. Pau is a C that doesn;t mesh with Bynum, Zach is a real PF and proven to mesh with a big and spread the floor. He is also a double double machine and hungry offesnviely. They could put 4 bench guys out there with him and he would carry the O and be greedy, whereas PAu forces Blake and Artest into fades like he does Kobe vs the clock.

Another thing is lets be real here.

Pau was a 1 time all star, no all nba, 0-12 in the postseason guy who got called out for being soft and faked an injury on top of being overpaid in Memphis. Zach is the better player for that franchise. He's a better first option and focal point, because unlike Pau he doesn't have to be poked, prodded, and coddled. Him on one knee produced Pau's playoff numbers which tells you how bad Pau has been the past two years at PF.

PAu got elevated in status because of Kobe and Phil. He isn't a guy that is a 20 million dollar player. He isn't a franchise player. He isn't a leader or captain. He isn't tough minded and naturally willing to leave it all out there. HE has to be pushed and in the words of Amare have Kobe, Lamar, Bynum, Ron and the like standing behind him as Pau in his own words said "to give him strength". Plus Pau has a damn trade kicker, is getting older, and mentally has checked out on two playoff runs now.

I would take Zach. I would take Josh Smith. Hell I would take the 3 picks and Lowry. It's just at a point you can't rely on the guy nor want his mentality rubbing off on others in LA because the moping offsets the hard hat ball to the wall Kobe and Ron bring, and there is no one there to care about his feelings and hug him with Derek and Lamar gone because as Kobe has already said "he don't do that **** with anyone but his girls"

Pau for Zach and Tony Allen would be a good deal. (Would say OJ but hes a FA)

really?

See Zbo got that label for his good playoff run 2 years ago, but other than that he's been nothing special in the playoffs. and even during his great run 2 years ago he only shot 44% in the playoffs... not exactly great.

Gasol has been a MUCH better player in the playoffs and its really not even close. 17 & 10 & 3apg & 2bpg on 52% for his career he in the playoffs.

zbo has a horrible contract and is coming off an 11ppg 7rpg season, he is nowhere near the passer Gasol is either...

Gasol > Zbo, and again really not close... no way the Laker do this.

STL Don
06-28-2012, 10:23 AM
It really would depend on who the Grizzlies package with Randolph, IMO.
I could see this type of deal working out well for both sides barring any injuries. Randolph would be a better fit than Gasol for the Lakers and we would no longer have to suffer watching Pau out of position with a high tendency of disappearing, especially when we would expect him to be stepping up his game.
Both would also probably find it in themselves to regain confidence and play harder for each of their new city's in which would be a lot of hype surrounding one another to perform at a high level.

Everything that the lakers have said they wanted (youth and athleticism) is not found in Zbo... They may have comparable stats but this would not the Lakers at all. They would essentially be the same team they were last season.

See I have to disagree with Zbo being a good fit. I think playing with Marc who is extremely unselfish and a great passer really helps him. Bynum needs to improve on his passing ability, and it's nowhere near Marc's level.
r
My biggest complaint with this deal is that Zbo has more years and more money than Pau left on his deal. We have nobody on the books for 2014, but if we pulled this deal, a 33-34 year old Zbo would be making 16.5 mill. That's a big chunk of the cap for us.

Yes, because Laker fans wouldn't be going crazy right now of if Pau was going to be dealt tomorrow and we'd be the ones just coming off of our 17th championship parade.

doubt lakers accept.

Maybe if they make it a three way that sends Zbo to hell and someting good to lakers it would be intriguing.

Of course id be happy to have both gasols on a team. then trade Ballhogay for Igoudala and its a great team.

Hahahahaha

@numba1

So grizz trade arguably their top 2 players and receive the Lakers 3rd best player and an old washed up Metta when they already have tony allen? Got it.

You talking about Mayo ?

unless they play with two basketballs I don't see how Kobe and Randolph can be on the same team. I like it for the Grizz.

I'll kill someone if this happens I want nothing to do with z-bo and his contract, maybe if they give us conely,gay,zbo,and 2 first round picks I'd take. Lol
But seriously We need to get younger and faster and those aren't z-bo's strong points

First of all Bleacher report is written by fans like all of us on here....0 credibility.

2nd, this move makes sense for both teams. The Lakers need a 4 that can stretch the floor to create space for Bynum. Is this the best option? Probably not, but it's on the correct path.

Josh Smith wouldn't fit with the Lakers because he can't stretch the floor. If we are not getting Howard I rather have Zbo over josh smith.
