CelebrityNetWorth.com, a website dedicated to publishing exactly what it advertises, has Memphis' very own Zach Randolph listed as having a net worth of $65 million.
Not bad for a 32-year-old that was once pegged as a cancerous thug who was more trouble than he was worth (which would be an enormous amount of trouble considering his net worth.) Let's backtrack a few steps back to when Randolph made statements earlier this season about how "he would be willing to make sacrifices to stay in Memphis," a statement that is now looking like it has some ground to stand on.
65 million dollars worth of ground, to be exact. In addition to a net worth that rivals the mass of his shoulders, Randolph is still being paid about $5 million a year (through 2017) from deferred compensation with the Portland Trailblazers. The combination of those figures make it easier to understand how ZBo might be able to back off a $17 million player option for next season.
In addition to net worthiness, CelebrityNetWorth also has an interesting column up that displays the Top 100 Cumulative NBA Salaries of All Time. While the list is obviously affected by inflation, Zach Randolph comes in at #33 with a cumulative NBA salary of $138.6 million.
To give you some perspective, some notable players that are/were paid a less cumulative amount than ZBo:
- Anfernee Hardaway
- Marcus Camby
- Patrick Ewing
- Gilbert Arenas
- David Robinson
- Lamar Odom
- Scottie Pippen
- Steve Francis
- Dwight Howard
- LeMarcus Aldridge
