The Memphis Grizzlies decided to take power forward Zach Randolph off the trade market, USA Today reported Monday.

Memphis reportedly recently turned down an offer by the Phoenix Suns.

Randolph is a possible free agent this summer as he can opt out of his contract. He has said he wants to stay with the Grizzlies but has not officially decided if he will remain with the team or opt out of his deal.

The Suns reportedly asked about possibly acquiring Randolph but the Grizzlies told them he was not available. One rival executive told USA Today that Philadelphia 76ers forward Thaddeus Young was also a trade target. Young, 25, is averaging 17.5 points and 6.2 rebounds per game this season.

Randolph was reportedly taken off the trade block at this time last year as well, but rumors swirled again during the summer and as recently as December. Randolph previously admitted he was “hurt” by the trade talk.

Randolph is averaging 17.5 points and 10.5 points per game this season.
