article imageNBA Trade Rumors: Zach Randolph to Brooklyn Nets?

By Larry Seely     Dec 19, 2013 in Sports
Brooklyn - The Brooklyn Nets entered the 2013-14 NBA season with high expectations. After making a deal with Boston to acquire Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, many basketball experts figured making the playoffs would be easy and maybe a top four seed was in reach.
Despite all the moves this franchise made, including hiring Jason Kidd as the new head coach, this squad has struggled all year and have just a 9-16 record.
The poor start has the fans and management unhappy and trade rumors have begun on social media. The latest comes from Sports Nation and has the Nets looking to acquire Memphis power forward Zach Randolph with Pierce headed to the Grizzlies.
This trade proposal is intriguing as it has the Nets landing another proven scorer, but also a player that hits the glass hard, something this team is missing with the current roster. Randolph has playoffs experience and despite being another player over the age of 30, his skill level is still high enough to get this team back on track in the weak Eastern Conference and into contention for a spot in the final eight.
Memphis has never been shy about making moves. Adding Pierce would only be a one year tryout with the team looking to lose the salary to sign some younger talent next summer, but the Grizzlies are also struggling and while this trade might not help them this season, it could land them the star player they need to become one of the top teams in the NBA in 2014-15.
