Zach Randolph Says the Memphis Grizzlies are Better Without Rudy Gay

by February 15, 2013

Rudy Gay’s trade from Memphis to Toronto was an unpopular decision within the Grizzlies’ locker room when it went down. Now that everyone has had a chance to digest the fact that Rudy is a Raptor, veteran forward Zach Randolph seems to think his team will be better off sans Rudy. Per the Commercial Appeal: “Seemingly everywhere he went Friday, Zach Randolph heard a variation of a question on one topic: the Grizzlies’ recent trades. […] Randolph was asked if he agreed with team chairman Robert Pera, who this week said his new-look Grizzlies are better equipped for playoff success after a trade that sent Rudy Gay to Toronto. ‘I definitely do,’ Randolph said. ‘I think once we get our identity together and continue to play, get some more games under our belt as a unit and come together, I think we can surprise a lot of people.'”
