Former Cal star Jerome Randle has signed with the Sydney Kings in the Australian National Basketball League (NBL).
The 5-10 guard comes from the Turkey TBL where he averaged 16.2 points and 3.8 assists for Bahcesehir this season.
Prior to that Randle was in the France Pro A, averaging 10 points and 4 assists for Limoges CSP Elite.
Last season he was also in Australia, where he led the NBL in assists and was third in scoring, averaging 21.3 points and 5.4 assists for the Adelaide 36ers.
He guided the 36ers to the league’s best record and was named the All-Australian NBL Player of the Year, Import Player of the Year, and Guard of the Year.
Randle became only the second Adelaide player to ever be named league MVP, joining Mark Davis who was won the award in 1987.
A college star at Cal, Randle led the team in scoring as a senior in 2009-10, when he averaged 18.6 points and guided the Bears to their first Pac-10 title in 50 years.
He was named the Pac-10 Player of the Year that season, and led Cal to the 2010 NCAA tournament’s second round.
Randle graduated as the school’s all-time career leader in scoring, three-pointers made and free throw percentage, and was second all-time in assists.
Randle has also played overseas in Israel, Ukraine and Belgium, as well as with the NBA G League’s Texas Legends and Maine Red Claws.
