Grizzlies to retire Zach Randolph's number 50

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Grizz Nation will always have love and adoration for Zach Randolph.

After the news broke that Z-Bo was off to a new home in Sacramento for the 2017-18 season, Grizzlies fans broke into tears, reminisced old memories, and thanked their favorite Grizzly for his eight years of service on and off the court.

To make this even more apparent, Grizzlies General Manager Chris Wallace and President Jason Wexler penned an open letter to Z-Bo as a thank you from the team and the fans.

To top the letter off, the team states that no Grizzlies player will ever wear the number 50 again.

Dear Z-Bo and Grizz Nation,

The note is accompanied by a tribute video, with a graphic at the end showing Z-Bo's iconic number 50 hanging from the rafters.
