Less than a week after being invited to the training camp, the Phoenix Suns signed the 28-year-old security guard Chasson Randle into the official line-up.
Randle made his NBA debut in 2017 but was not drafted but was signed by the Philadelphia 76ers. He also played for the New York Knicks, Washington Wizards, Golden State Warriors, and Orlando Magic.
In 119 career games and seven league starts, he’s averaged 5.7 points and 1.8 assists, while shooting a total of 40%.
Randle had his best career year averaging 20.1 minutes per game in 41 appearances (five starts) for Magic last season. Randle averaged 6.5 points, 1.8 assists and 2.0 rebounds with Orlando.
He visited Stanford before playing internationally in the Czech Republic, Spain, China and the NBA G League.
Randle is unlikely to make the Sun’s list as it currently has 16 players, six of whom are guards.
NBA teams must reduce their roster to 15 players at the start of the regular season.
Phoenix begins its 2022-23 campaign after the 2021 NBA final with a media day on Monday.
