Zach Randolph's basketball retirement lasted less than three months.
On Wednesday, the two-time NBA All-Star agreed to terms with Ice Cube's Big3 league. Randolph, who retired from the NBA in late December, will serve as a captain for team Trilogy, according to a league press release.
Randolph was a central figure for the Memphis Grizzlies during their "Grit and Grind" era of the 2010s — the most successful period in franchise history — leading them to the 2013 Western Conference finals.
In 17 NBA seasons, he averaged 16.6 points and 9.1 rebounds. Randolph also played with the Portland Trail Blazers, New York Knicks, Sacremento Kings and Los Angeles Clippers in his career.
The 38-year-old Randolph will join new coach — and former NBA player — Stephen Jackson on Trilogy.
