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.
Randle was assigned to Capital City on Tuesday. Randle scored 12 points over 15 minutes in Washington's last contest against the Kings, but he'll be sent to the G League where he figures to see extended run. Troy Brown could see more playing time off the bench for the Wizards as a result.
Randle will get the start for Wednesday's game against the Raptors. Randle managed just five points, a rebound an an assist during his first start in place of Tomas Satoransky (personal) on Monday. He'll get another chance against Toronto but isn't likely to play much more than the 19 minutes he was allotted against Detroit.
Randle totaled five points (2-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt), one rebound and one assist over 19 minutes in the Wizards' loss to the Pistons on Monday. Randle got his first start of the season on Monday with Tomas Satoransky (personal) out, but he didn't do much with the opportunity. Two nights removed from a career-high 20 point performance, Randle couldn't get it going offensively, and he remains an a speculative add in deep leagues only.
