Sixers Waive Chasson Randle

The Sixers have waived guard Chasson Randle to open a roster spot to complete today’s trade with the Mavericks, tweets Jake Fischer of Sports Illustrated.

Randle, who appeared in eight games for Philadelphia, signed a three-year contract January 30th. Only his $233,373 salary for this season was guaranteed. Randle would have received $1,312,611 for 2017/18 and $1,544,951 for 2018/19 if he had remained with the team.

The Sixers sent Nerlens Noel to Dallas in exchange for Andrew Bogut, Justin Anderson and a first-round pick. Because Philadelphia already had 15 players on its roster, someone had to go before the trade could be finalized.

Bogut is expected to agree to a buyout, so Randle could return to fill that roster spot if he clears waivers. Randle saw just an average of 9.3 minutes per night in his eight games, but scored 5.3 points per contest and shot 40% from 3-point range.

      If he’s any good the Knicks don’t want anything to do with him. Especially considering they stashed him in the d league and could’ve been using him. Then the sixers signed him. But in typical Knicks fashion they won’t do something that can be perceived as positive for the organization.

    If yall waited just 4 days then you would come to find out that the knicks got rid of BJ and have signed CR the same day.
