With all of the rumors swirling around the association lately pertaining to the Memphis Grizzlies trading Rudy Gay because they wish to be above the luxury tax threshold, many have ignored the possibility of “The Grizz” parting ways with power forward, Zach Randolph, instead of swingman, Gay. Alex Kennedy (NBA Reporter for HOOPSWORLD) says a source made him aware that Zach Randolph may be heading to Houston. He adds that Houston loves Randolph. Source says that the Memphis Grizzlies may keep Rudy Gay, and instead trade Zach Randolph to the Houston Rockets. Houston loves Randolph. — Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) January 20, 2013   This is a major surprise to the NBA community who thought if any Grizzly were to be dealt it would be Rudy Gay. If the deal is completed, Houston goes from playoff hopeful to playoff lock. Randolph, a great scorer and rebounder, would be an excellent piece to pair with defensive stud Omer Asik. The move would also take some of the scoring pressure of the NBAs fifth leading scorer James Hardin. Randolph was rewarded with a 4 year, $71 million dollar deal last April after helping lead the Grizzlies to their first ever playoff win but now it appears they may be ready to part ways with their dominant big man. by Cole Krueger Twitter  CoJoK22 The post Zach Randolph heading to the Houston Rockets? appeared first on Pass The Pill.
