NBA rumors 2014: Zach Randolph to opt out of contract with Memphis Grizzlies

NBA rumors for 2014 suggest Zach Randolph will opt out of his contract with the Memphis Grizzlies. Rumors of Randolph hitting free agency indicate that he would decline his player option during the 2014 offseason. According to a report from NBA.com on Friday (Dec. 27), his name has also popped up in trade talk because of his intent to look for a new multi-year deal in the offseason.

This doesn't necessarily mean that Randolph would leave the Grizzlies, but merely that he is looking for one more big contract before he retires from the league. It's not exactly clear what team would offer him one, though, especially with how many times he has already been traded during his career. Through 26 games this season, he is averaging 16.8 points and 10.2 rebounds per game. Those numbers indicate that he could still have a lot to offer a contender next year.

During his time in the league, Zach Randolph has played for the Portland Trail Blazers, New York Knicks, LA Clippers, and Grizzlies. If Memphis doesn't feel good about giving him a new contract in the offseason, many 2014 NBA rumors are going to pop up about a trade. That could lead to his fifth team in the league, especially because the franchise doesn't want to lose him to free agency and get nothing in return.
