Report: Grizzlies, Randolph hit impasse on extension talks

Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph averaged 10.1 rebounds last season.

The Memphis Grizzlies might have to move forward without their star power forward.

The Grizzlies’ contract extension talks with two-time All-Star Zach Randolph have stalled, which could mean Randolph will opt out of his current deal and become a free agent, Yahoo! Sports/FOX Sports 1 NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

Randolph has until June 30 to opt in for the final year of his deal, which will pay him $16.5 million. Randolph is seeking a four-year extension while the Grizzlies are trying to secure a three-year pact, Wojnarowski reports.

Randolph has spent the past five seasons with the Grizzlies, recording double-doubles in four of those campaigns. He averaged 17.4 points and 10.1 rebounds this past season.
