Could Zach Randolph be headed elsewhere?

Could Zach Randolph be headed elsewhere?

Playing most of his 30 minutes at power forward, Abdur-Rahim took 16 shots. He had 20 points and 12 rebounds, his 27th double double this season. And because of NBA trade restrictions, the Blazers hands are tied when it comes to the possibility of dealing him.

Randolph is a different story. He's in the final year of a rookie contract. He has All-Star talent and undoubtedly is the most attractive player to the rest of the league's general managers.

Offering Randolph for, say, Golden State off-guard Jason Richardson makes a lot sense. So does dangling Randolph in front of Orlando in a bid to get Tracy McGrady.

"Zach isn't untouchable," a Blazers team executive said. "But it would have to be an amazing deal."

Zach ain't going anywhere. Once they have practiced more together, they will work out the whole shot selection thing. Shareef only shot a lot because it was his 1st gameas a Blazer. Unless they get Tim, KG, Yao, Shaq, Amare, Brand, or J. Oneal...then Zach will be a Blazer for awhile.

He is the focal point of their team, and has the potential to be the best player in Portland. Don't think they got rid of Sheed and are looking to rid themselves of Damon for nothing. All those guys are bad influences and bad for the Blazers, they wanted them out, but also wanted to put good (guys that don't do drugs, throw balls at guys, or get arrested every weekend) around Zach.
