might unload power forward Zach Randolph to do it.
Griz CEO Jason Levien, whom principal owner Robert Pera has entrusted to run the franchise, is gauging the value of several players on the roster. There also have been exploratory trade conversations centered on forward Zach Randolph.
The Sacramento Kings are one of the teams with whom the Griz recently held preliminary talks, according to a league source.
Moving Randolph could prove to be a big mistake for the Grizzlies as Randolph probably is the most popular player in Grizzlies history. He and center Marc Gasol have a good working relationship and he's a favorite among fans and teammates.
I understand that it's all about the bottom line, but this that could be a critical mistake for a team with designs on contending for a championship.
