Should Grizzlies invest long-term in Zach Randolph?
 
He surprised people and rose up to be named an All-Star, but in general Randolph has been considered a player whose stats are better than his actual value.

I hope they invest in him. We have one of the cheapest owners but I think he has even realized that they are going to have to start paying their players to stay otherwise the fans will be pissed. I don't know how it will work out with the new CBA coming up, I just know Memphis will be very mad if they just let him go because everyone here loves him.

No

Wait until he becomes a FA and then match anything he gets unless someone throws crazy money at him, which I doubt.

Please learn from the Rudy Gay debacle, let someone actually throw their hat in the ring before offering him the max. You just bid against YOURSELF! No one would have given that dude 50 million.

The next CBA might make it cheaper to sign him. If you sign him to an extension now, you are just bidding against yourself again. So a poorly run team like Memphis will really do it.

Trust me, just about every source that deals with the NBA has said that many teams were going to offer Gay the max. Teams had space to burn and Gay was the cream of the crop after the established stars that made all the headlines. Minnesota,NJ and LAC at the very least. If you let someone else dictate the terms, they will structure it so you have to make a huge up front payment or something else you'd rather not deal with, so it was better to just get it done if they were in deed going to match the max.

They will not have the right to match Zach Randolph. He'll be unrestricted where Gay was restricted.

Exactly. They should have just signed Gay to an extension last year but I don't think they expected so many teams to have such huge cap space and Gay was considered to be a pretty good pick up for a lot of teams. If Randolphs season this year is anything like it was last year I can't imagine other teams not going after him. He seems to like Memphis so maybe if he believes in the team and wants to stay he will take a little less to stay here since he fits in so well but who knows.

I wonder if the Grizz find a way to ship Rudy Gay out now that the team seems to be in great hands without him playing?
