Now (Zach) Randolph has a player option for next season, and (Grizzlies coach Dave) Joerger is among those hoping he returns.

”He knows he’s loved,” Joerger said Sunday. ”He knows he’s wanted here. We have a good relationship. A really, really good relationship. He was not difficult for me to coach at all. I really enjoyed coaching him. We’re really on the same page, so I hope we can continue that.”

As for his own future, Randolph has never been a free agent in his career and plans to talk with his agent in a couple days. He also wants to talk to the Grizzlies.

”This is where I want to be at,” Randolph said. ”This is home for me. My kids go to school here. I bought a house, so Memphis is home. I’m not 21. I’m 32. I’m still in my prime the way I play.”
