Originally posted by Chad Ford on ESPN Insider As if GM John Nash wasn't already in hot water, now it looks like the entire Blazers' team has soured on Zach Randolph - the guy Nash recently gave a six-year, $83 million contract extension.
Things have gotten so rocky in Portland that, internally, the Blazers have kicked around the idea of trading Randolph. With Shareef Abdur-Rahim on the roster, the team already has another top-notch power forward. And unlike Randolph, Abdur-Rahim has shown a willingess to play within a system, out of position and get his teammates involved.
Now - who'd be dumb enough to take on THAT contract and take in a known "Jail Blazer" (besides Zeke, of course)?
Ford says Randolph's contract is so bad that the only team that can really afford him is New Jersey. But that ain't happening with them saving $$ for the Brooklyn move and all.
