The Golden State Warriors have signed another - yes, another - player to a 10-day contract, as they continue to shuffle the depleted back half of their roster.
This time they’re looking just down the road by signing former Stanford guard Chasson Randle. Randle, a 6-foot-2, 27-year old point guard, has dabbled in the NBA before. He played for the Philadelphia 76ers and New York Knicks in 2016-17, and for the Washington Wizards in 2018-19. In all, he’s appeared in 75 NBA games, and averaged 13.9 minutes, 5.4 points, 1.2 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per game, while shooting 38.3% from beyond the arc.
Randle (whose first name rhymes with “Jason”) has spent this season with the Tianjin Pioneers of the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA), where he’s averaged rather gaudy numbers: 24.9 points, 3.4 rebounds, 4.1 assists, and 1.7 steals per game. But due to the coronavirus, the CBA has suspended play, which has allowed Randle and other players to seek other opportunities. That means another shot at the NBA.

Randle spent four years at Stanford, averaging 16.5 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game, while being named All-Pac-12 twice. As a senior, he was named MVP of the 2015 NIT Tournament.
He’s expected to suit up for the Warriors tonight when they visit the Denver Nuggets.
