Former Knick Chasson Randle didn’t take long to catch onto another club. The combo guard, who was released in the wake of the Carmelo Anthony trade, has a deal in place with Spanish basketball powerhouse Real Madrid.
Randle started the 2016-17 season in Westchester following a strong 2016 Summer League. He eventually signed and made his NBA debut with the 76ers before being released and catching on with the Knicks to finish out the campaign. He averaged 5.3 points on 38.9% shooting in 18 games with New York and struggled mightily on the Knicks’ 2017 Summer League squad. He also appeared to add 25 pounds of muscle directly to his neck.
Former Real Madrid center Willy Hernangomez left a nice message on Chasson’s Instagram: “Good luck brother! Have fun bro! Lmk if you need anything in my city.”
Hey, you know who else plays for Real Madrid at the moment? Teenage basketball wunderkind Luka Doncic! Chasson, if you can figure out a way to get Doncic on the Knicks, we’ll happily re-sign you to a 5-year contract.*
