Knicks waive Brandon Jennings to make room for Chasson Randle

In a surprising move, the New York Knicks waived point guard Brandon Jennings to clear a spot for what is reported to be the signing of Chasson Randle.

Broke down by The Vertical, the Knicks will be eligible to add him back to the roster if he clears waivers.

However, according to Marc Spears, Jennings was the one who asked to be waived, expressing his wish to play for a playoff contender.

Jennings was given a one year contract worth $5 million on July 2016 and played 58 games this season for New York. The 27-year-old averaged 8.6 points and 4.9 assists coming off the bench for Derrick Rose but also counted 11 starts.

“Playing in the Mecca was an amazing experience and I’m looking forward to being back on the court soon playing the game that I love.”

Randle on the other side was initially singed by the Philadelphia 76ers and given a 10 days contract. He was released soon after the Sixers management made some roster changes which sent Nerlens Noel to the Mavericks in exchange for Andrew BogutJustin Anderson and a protected 1st round pick.

Before joining the Sixers, Randle played for the Westchester Knicks, where he averaged 21 points per game. Now he’s on his way back to the team he highly impressed during the Summer League but was not sign due to his orbital bone fracture, which kept him for the most of the 2016-17 season in the D-League.
