Randle is expected to be available for Tuesday's game against Denver, Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Randle is on track to officially complete the signing process Tuesday afternoon, so if all goes to plan, he could be available to make his debut later in the night. Randle, who's previously spent time with the Wizards, Knicks and 76ers, was recently released from his contract in the Chinese Basketball Association.
Randle agreed in principle Sunday with the Warriors on a 10-day contract, Jonathan Givony of ESPN.com reports. After recently securing a release from his contract with Tianjin of the Chinese Basketball Association, Randle received the green light to find work in North America. The CBA suspended play in late January due to the coronavirus outbreak in China, but Randle's previous attempts to receive clearance from FIBA to pursue NBA opportunities were blocked by Tianjin. The Chinese club has apparently changed its stance, however, allowing Randle to join the Warriors as a depth option in the backcourt. He's unlikely to finalize his contract in advance of Sunday's game against the Wizards, so Randle's Warriors debut likely won't come until at least Tuesday's game in Denver.
Randle is nearing agreement on a contract Tuesday with the Tianjin Pioneers of the Chinese Basketball Association, Emiliano Carchia of Sportando.com reports. Randle appeared in 49 games with the Wizards in 2018-19 but did little to demonstrate he was a viable NBA rotation option, averaging just 5.5 points (on 41.9 percent shooting from the field), 2.0 assists, 1.1 rebounds and 0.9 triples in 15.2 minutes per contest. With the prospect of signing a training-camp contract with another NBA team apparently not appealing, Randle will head to China for what's presumably a better payday than he would earn stateside.
The Wizards will not extend Randle a qualifying offer, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports. Randle saw a decent amount of action for the Wizards down the stretch, likely as a final evaluation period for a team that was out of playoff contention. He apparently didn't pass the test, and should be headed for free agency this offseason.
Randle was recalled from the G League prior to Wednesday's game against Orlando and finished with 13 points (5-7 FG, 3-5 3Pt) and two rebounds over 21 minutes. It's been a hectic week for Randle to this point, as he was assigned to Washington's G-League affiliate, the Capital City Go Go, on Tuesday before he was brought back in time for Wednesday's clash. The 26-year-old guard has found ways to make an impact in each of his team's previous two games, scoring 12 and 13 points, respectively. The Stanford product has seen substantial playing time off the bench when with the Wizards, as he's averaging 15.1 minutes and 5.7 points through 34 matchups this year.
