Report: Zach Randolph signs two-year, $20M extension with Memphis
Zach Randolph agreed Friday to a two-year, $20 million extension with the Memphis Grizzlies after exercising his $16.5 million player option for the 2014-15 season, reports Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.
After contract negotiations stalled earlier in the week, it was reported that Randolph was "thinking seriously about triggering his early termination option," which would have made him unrestricted free agent, but the two sides were able to come to an agreement before the June 30 deadline.
