Memphis big man Zach Randolph has a few options this summer. He can opt-in to the final year of his contract with the Grizz, he can opt-out and leave or he can opt-out and re-sign a longer deal with the team. Memphis is hoping they can keep Z-Bo long-term. From ESPN.com:
The Memphis Grizzlies are hopeful of coming to terms on a contract extension with former All-Star forward Zach Randolph before free agency starts July 1, according to sources close to the situation.
Randolph must decide by June 30 whether to opt out of the final season of his contract, which is valued at $16.5 million, but sources told ESPN.com that the Grizzlies are working to hammer out the specifics of an extension with Randolph before the 32-year-old is exposed to other potential bidders.
