8. Zach Randolph

Despite peaking during his time with the grit-n-grind Memphis Grizzlies, Zach Randolph was a productive on-court player for Portland in his first six NBA seasons. Z-Bo averaged 16.0 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists and shot almost 47 percent from the floor after the franchise drafted him 19th overall in 2001.

Randolph won the NBA's Most Improved Player Award in 2003-24 after averaging a double-double for the first time (20.1 points, 10.5 rebounds).

The ground-bound big man was eventually traded to the New York Knicks for Steve Francis and Channing Frye, but his 19.5 PER with Portland is still one of the franchise's best.
