Z-Bo to pass on free agency in 2014
By Nick Borges
Jason Quick of The Oregonian tweeted Wednesday: "Z-Bo (Zach Randolph) is under contract with Memphis through 2014-2015, with his option to exercise final year. Says he will likely stay; loves city and team."
This news is not a surprise as Randolph is set to make $16.5 million in 2014-15 once he exercise his player option.
While it's unlikely, the Grizzlies could use the amnesty provision in 2014 to eliminate Randolph from their salary cap as a way to avoid the luxury tax.
