The extension is for $20.5 million over two years — in addition to the $16.5 million Randolph will make next season — and will keep Randolph is Memphis until 2017.
Randolph is the heart and soul of a Grizzlies team that won 50 games last season and has qualified for the playoffs for four consecutive years. The extension is also cap-friendly for the Grizzlies and will allow the team more flexibility to sign other potential key players down the road.
Last season, the 32-year old Randolph averaged 17.4 points and 10.1 rebounds in 79 games with the Grizzlies. The power forward has averaged 17.2 points and 9.4 rebounds over the course of his 13-year career with the Trail Blazers, Knicks, Clippers and Grizzlies.
