Memphis Grizzlies legends Zach Randolph and Tony Allen will see their jerseys hanging in the rafters after the team announced the duo's numbers will be retired during the 2021-22 season.

Randolph's retirement ceremony will take place at FedEx Forum on Dec. 11 against the Houston Rockets, while Allen's will take place on Jan. 28 against the Utah Jazz.

As two of the leaders of 'Grit and Grind' Grizzlies, Randolph and Allen helped lead the franchise to seven consecutive playoff appearances between 2011-2017, including a trip to the Western Conference Finals in 2013 - the most successful stretch in franchise history.

Randolph spent eight seasons in Memphis (2009-17) and became the first player in franchise history to receive an All-NBA selection (Third Team 2011) and the second player ever to be named an All-Star (2010, 2013).

Allen spent seven seasons in Memphis (2010-2017) and was named to the All-Defensive team on six occasions, (First Team (2012, 2013, 2015) and Second Team (2011, 2016, 2017).

In 2019, the Grizzlies announced that Marc Gasol and Mike Conley Jr.'s jerseys will also be retired at the end of their playing careers.
