Sydney Kings sign Jerome Randle

Randle inks in NBL

In what ranks as one of the biggest coups in franchise history, the Sydney Kings are thrilled to announce that import guard Jerome Randle has been signed for the remainder of the 2017/2018 National Basketball League season.

The club wasted no time in reaching out to the 2016/2017 NBL Most Valuable Player after he recently concluded a stint with Turkish club Bahcesehir.

The organisation is confident that the dynamic, high-scoring guard known as 'The Handle' will bolster the team greatly as it looks to get back on track after a sluggish start to the season.

Sydney Kings Managing Director Jeff Van Groningen is confident that Randle brings something new to the team and organisation.

"We welcome Jerome Randle to the Kings and look forward to seeing him in action at Qudos Bank Arena this season," Mr Van Groningen stated.

"Jerome possesses an explosive game and is a gifted ball-handler and scorer. He is also an incredibly well-known in this league after an amazing MVP season last year. Kings fans will embrace him, and he will embrace them, I have no doubt at all."

Randle had a season to remember with the Adelaide 36ers in 2016/2017. He topped the league in scoring and was third in assists as he led the Sixers to a first-place 17-11 record in the regular season, averaging 21.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 1.0 steals over 31 games. For his efforts he became just the second Adelaide player ever to be named NBL Most Valuable Player, adding an All-NBL First Team nod and the NBL Fans' MVP to his bulging trophy case.
