A person familiar with the situation says Randolph has agreed to a contract extension. The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the extension hasn't been announced. Terms and length of the deal weren't disclosed.

Yahoo Sports, which first reported the news, said Randolph is exercising his $16.5 million option for the 2014-15 season and has agreed on a two-year extension worth $20 million. The 32-year-old Randolph has been a cornerstone of the Grizzlies franchise since coming to Memphis in 2009. He averaged 17.4 points and 10.1 rebounds this season for the Grizzlies, who lost to Oklahoma City in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs.

Randolph has been suspended for Game 7 of the Grizzlies' playoff series against Oklahoma City for punching Thunder center Steven Adams in the jaw. The ruling Friday by the NBA leaves the Grizzlies without their leading scorer for the deciding game in Oklahoma City.

Randolph is averaging a team-best 18.2 points in the series, which ends Saturday night.

Randolph was back in the lineup Friday in Chicago after missing the Memphis Grizzlies' last game with the flu.

The power forward sat out when Memphis lost 103-94 at Brooklyn on Wednesday night. He came to the arena in hopes of playing, but was unable to go. Memphis coach Dave Joerger says it was "just a bout of the flu."

Randolph had a fairly lackluster double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds while going 5 for 12 from the field in Saturday's loss to Charlotte.
