Randle goes undrafted, but joins Warriors for the summer

 

Stanford graduate Chasson Randle was passed over in this week's NBA Draft, but he still will be busy with an NBA team after agreeing to join the Golden State Warriors for NBA Summer League competition.

A two-time All-Pac-12 First Team selection, Randle scored 2,375 career points to pass previous record holder Todd Lichti as the school's all-time leading scorer while ranking third all-time in conference history.

Lichti, by the way, spent part of his NBA career with the Warriors.

Randle, who guided Stanford to only its fifth NCAA Sweet 16 appearance (2014) and two Postseason NIT championships (2012, 2015), also established school records in three-point field goals (304), three-point field goals attempted (787), field goals attempted (1,775), games played (144), games started (142) and minutes played (4,791).

Named an Associated Press Honorable Mention All-American as a senior, Randle averaged a team-best 19.6 points while shooting 40.3 percent overall and ranking 19th in the country with an 87.7 percent clip from the foul line. Named the NIT's Most Outstanding Player, Randle averaged 23.6 points over the tournament run. During his final season, Randle scored in double figures in all but one game while also leading the Cardinal in assists (112) and steals (50).

Randle was mentioned among the nation's best players throughout his senior season and was a finalist for the following: Wooden Award Presented by Wendy's (final 20 candidates), Naismith Trophy (final 30 candidates) and Jerry West Shooting Guard of the Year Award (final 16 candidates). Randle was also a USBWA All-District pick.

Rebounding successfully from a sophomore slump, Randle averaged a team-high 18.8 points (ranking third Pac-12) as a junior while shooting 47.4 percent from the field and 76.7 percent from the foul line. Named an all-conference pick for the first time in his career, Randle scored at least 20 points in six of Stanford's final eight games and 16 overall.

Randle's record-breaking career totals were aided by perhaps the best overall freshman season in school history. In 2011-12, Randle averaged a team-best 13.8 points per game while shooting 43.9 percent from the field, 43.8 percent from three-point territory and 76.1 percent from the foul line. Randle's rookie totals rank as follows in program history: points (2nd), scoring average (3rd), field goals made (2nd), field goals attempted (1st), three-pointers made (1st), assists (4th), steals (4th), minutes (1st) and games started (1st).
