Sorry Memphis fans, we were with you and wanted to believe in the change. A new Zach Randolph. And to be fair we haven’t heard both sides of this story.

But this does not look good.

According to police, the man that suffered a beating at the home of Randolph — which triggered police to come out with a search warrant over the weekend — says he was invited by the current Memphis and former Blazer forward to come over to his home and sell marijuana at a party.

The two men met on a party cruise on Friday night, from there we turn this update over to the Oregonian:

That’s where police say Randolph, a former Trail Blazer now playing for the Memphis Grizzlies, invited a Southeast Portland man he knew to his mansion on Southwest Turner Road, in the Stafford area south of West Linn, for an after-cruise party. The Portland man, James Ruben Beasley, told police he was invited to sell marijuana at the party, which drew about 20 people.

But something went wrong around 4 a.m. Saturday.

“Mr. Beasley said four to seven people jumped him and beat him bloody with pool cues,” said Sgt. James Rhodes, Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office spokesman.

Beasley says Randolph was not involved in the beating. Randolph has not been charged with anything yet.

Randolph may not have been involved, but there was another incident a year ago where associates had to deal with a drug-related charge where Randolph was not charged. That’s a lot of coincidences.

        Ex-zach-ly (SWIDT?). I could care less about the weed. Assault, though, is another matter.

    He invited the guy to the party, specifically so the guy could deal? Randolph’s a multi-millionaire and he couldn’t supply an ounce or 4? I guess you had to bring your own Cheetos too.

      No. But that is a good question.

    This dude will never learn. I am just wondering how many chances this dude is going to get before he winds up dead or in prison for life.

    He was a punk in trouble in high scholl in Indiana before all of this happened.

    My last post has two thumbs down…Apparently ZR is reading the comments to this. Dexter is right, he was in trouble in high school (something about illegal guns if I remember correctly) and Izzo still honored his scholie. Then he has either been busted or been with someone who has. Personally, I feel that weed should be legal, but until it is (if ever) he needs to realize that even with all of the money he has he is pushing his Karma limits and that the money won’t help much if you are incarcerated.
