Former NBA All Star Zach Randolph Retires After 17 Seasons


While Zach Randolph hasn't suited up in the National Basketball Association since a brief run with the Sacramento Kings during the 2017-18 campaign, he hadn't officially announced his retirement.

The former Blazer hasn't played in the league since the 2017-18 season, but was training for a possible comeback. He played for the Portland Trail Blazers, New York Knicks, Los Angeles Clippers, Memphis Grizzlies and Sacramento Kings.

Investigators are looking into reports that a 911 call was placed shortly before the incident on Wednesday. A Boston College student killed himself by jumping off the top of the garage earlier this year.

Randolph averaged over 20 points per game three times over the course of his career and formed an iconic grit-n-grind frontcourt pairing in Memphis alongside Marc Gasol. Randolph will always be loved in Memphis. This made Randolph the first former Grizzly to have a number retired.

In 2017, the Grizzlies lost their 250-pound forward as he opted to join the Sacramento Kings but that didn't stop Memphis in appreciating his efforts in helping the team reach playoffs nearly every season while he is with the team. Randolph most recently played for the Sacramento Kings, who he signed with after leaving Memphis following the 2016-17 season. On a rebuilding phase focusing on young players, the lefty forward was left out of rotation and was dealt with the Mavericks before waiving him.
