Zach Randolph's contract talks with the Grizzlies hit a major snag and he is now leaning toward free agency.

Randolph averaged 17.4 points, 10.1 rebounds, and 2.5 assists over 34 minutes per game and was a major part of the Grizzlies success. Though they didn't make the playoffs, they were right in there until the very end. Randolph wants to be paid and should be paid, so if he has to play some hard ball here with the Grizzlies, thee he should. No need foe lowball offers.ANALYST: Howard Bender Mobile App
