There is a story on ESPN that the Grizzlies have traded for Zach Randolph.
Here is the link to the story.
This is an interesting move for the Grizzlies and one that must leave some national media shaking their heads. The Grizzlies made a move that wasn't a salary dumping move. We are actually spending more money than we have to. This is a move that will make the Grizzlies better.
I am glad to have an offensive power forward to start the season with. It will be interesting to see who the backup will be. Will they resign Warrick who is a bench scorer or will they go with Arthur who is more of a rebounder and defensive presence.
Our starting lineup now has 3 guys who could average 20 points per game and 2 others who could average around 10 or more. Will we win the NBA championship this year? No, but I can see us closer to making the playoffs than I could 1 or 2 years ago.
Now let us wait and see what moves Chris Wallace makes in obtaining a back up point guard for Mike Conley.
