    Default Proof that the Grizzlies have one of the worst FO in the league - ZBO to Grizz

    http://www.latimes.com/sports/la-sp-...0,238192.story

    Posted by Mark Heisler on http://www.latimes.com

    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.
    If this is true....and the Grizz Owners truly did object to making an offer to David Lee at $10 mil a year for 5 years....and then turn around and accepted QRich for ZBo....then the Grizzlies FO is one of the worst in the league.

    On paper.....ZBo is a solid scoring and rebounding Forward...but he's not the smartest players in the league. But I guess playing next to Thabeet.....his defensive liabilities won't look so bad.

    Also.....the Clips did something impossible......they found a Team willing to take on ZBo.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Yeah, I don't quite get this.

    They can't afford to pay Pau Gasol, so they turn right around a year later to acquire Zach Randolph, who essentially has the same contract?

    salaries don't match.
    memphis needs to include other salaries. Maybe it's Jaric+QRich. Then it makes a little bit more sense.

    They don't need to match. Memphis is under the cap.

    So they're spending their cap space on Zach Randolph. LOL

    Well its not like any big name free agents were gonna sign there or anything.

    It does make some sense "on paper" but unfortuantly Zach Randolph is a cancer, even if he is a good fit next to thabeet. What about Gasol though?

    That trade is not as bad as them trying to sing David Lee for 5years and 50mil that was going to be crazy, at least with ZR they would only have a two years contract.

    I think Chris Wallace is trying to get mayor of Los Angeles to give him the key to the city.

    First, he gift wraps Pau Gasol for the Lakers. Now, he takes Zach Randolph off of the Clippers' hands. Has anyone done more for the professional basketball teams of Los Angeles in the last 2 years than Chris Wallace?

    I'd much rather have Lee at 50 mil for 5 years then ZBo for 2. He's less of a headache, there's less chance that he'll do something to embaress the team, etc.

    But whatever....as Aw Heck pointed out....the Grizz just continue to bail out LA Teams.

    I read that Wallace wanted DLee....but the Grizz Owners vetoed it. Wallace redeemed himself with going with Thabeet over Rubio.....then had his hands tied with the Grizz owners.

    Ha wow. Randolph really to the Griz, after trading Pau Gasol for practically nothing. Interesting indeed.

    Darko for ZBo...

    I can think of a lot worse deals.

    ZBo, for all of his flaws, is still a highly talented offensive player.

    He actually had a pretty good season last year.

    And what, in a year they have a huge expiring?

    I would not have made the deal if I were the Grizzles. Might as well just save the money until you are ready to compete.

    With that said Randolph is a double double machine as others have said and will make them a lot better. They are going have a lot of fire power with Mayo, Gay, and Randolph. Not to mention Marc Gasol can score the ball too.

    At least the Grizzles are trying to win. They don't have the a bench needed to be good but hey it's a pretty low risk move taking on Zach Randolph.

    This actually gives me great hope...that if there is some team out there willing to take on Zach and his show, certainly there has to be a team stupid enough to take Tinsley off our hands. Hey, do you think Memphis needs a PG? They bring in Tinsley and it will be like the Tennessean version of the Jailblazers, all over again. Where's Bonzi?

    All-Headcase All-Star team

    PF - Zach
    SF - Shawne Williams
    PG - Jamaal Tinsley
    SG - Bonzi
    C - Rasheed

    The league's two dumbest GMs teaming up to make a deal. Dunleavy Sr. wins this one.

    Can Z-Bo play the pick and roll with OJ (or anybody)?

    Btw, I'm surprised nobody has said anything about the scoring PUNCH that Zach may provide.

    Why didn't they trade back, draft Jordan Hill to fill their need at PF, and save headaches as well as millions and let their young core grow together (ala Portland/Indiana)?
