The Phoenix Suns are being offered a slew of players that teams no longer want, but they seem transfixed on one of the guys who will be hard to pry away from his team. Despite being linked to Evan Turner, Carlos Boozer and Pau Gasol, the Suns continue to be interested in Memphis Grizzlies big man Zach Randolph.
According to Alex Kennedy from Basketball Insiders as well as David Aldridge from NBA.com, the Suns interest in Randolph hasn’t gone anywhere despite being told he’s not on the market.
“The Suns were reportedly the latest team to ask the Grizz about Randolph,” Aldridge writes. “He would be a perfect fit in Phoenix, a 270-pound docking station for all those satellites firing threes around him. The Suns certainly have a number of prospects to offer as well.”
The Suns called the Grizzlies not long ago to ask about Randolph but where turned away at the time. Memphis may change their mind but it seems that Randolph is still an option for the Suns and will continue to be, at least in their minds, until the deadline passes.
