It’s a wrap for Z-Bo … Zach Randolph tells TMZ Sports he’s ending his NBA comeback plans once and for all.
It’s not Earth-shattering news considering 38-year-old Randolph hasn’t played in the league since the 2017-18 season, but he had been floating the idea of a return for months.
In fact, back in June, Randolph seemed interested in a comeback, telling us he was “back to training” and was hoping to sign a deal with a team for the 2019-20 season.
But, that didn’t happen … and when we saw Randolph at Staples Center for the big Lakers vs. Clippers Christmas Day matchup, he was pretty matter of fact about his future.
Randolph had a pretty stellar career — he was a 1st-round pick in 2001, a 2-time NBA All-Star … and became a Memphis Grizzlies legend during his run there.
As for cash, he reportedly made nearly $200 MILLION on contract money during his career … so yeah, NOT BAD AT ALL!!
So, what’s next for Randolph? He’s growing his music label … but really, when you have $200 mil, you can do whatever you want!!
Oh, we also spoke with Randolph about NBA rookie sensation Ja Morant — and shocker, Randolph thinks he’s got all sorts of potential!
