Zach Gets Paid

Zach Randolph was just a big part of Memphis winning it’s first ever Playoff game, and as such the Grizzlies have shocked the NBA by locking up Randolph to a four year big dollars contract extension. Widely regarded as strongly unlikely to add any more guaranteed salary given Michael Heisley’s notoriously small pockets, the Grizzlies have been the surprise packet of the NBA with both their strong second half play and their willingness to spend on players such as Rudy Gay, Mike Conley and even Shane Battier.

It’s nice to see a small market team doing well and rewarding their players, but what does this mean for the future of the team and for negotiations in the off season between the Players Association and the League? It becomes a pretty hard sell when teams are their own worst enemy, and small market teams like Memphis, San Antonio and Oklahoma City are all doing well in the playoffs and setting themselves up to be successful in the long term.

Perhaps the larger issue is that there are just too many crummy GMs in the League?
