Cavaliers sign G-League guards Randolph and Newman

The Cavaliers have signed free agent guards Levi Randolph and Malik Newman to standard contracts.

Both players spent last season with the Canton Charge of the G League.

Randolph, 26, is 6-foot-6 and attended training camp with the Cavs last fall. He has also spent time playing professionally in France.

He averaged 14.6 points and 4.1 rebounds in 50 games with the Charge last season. Signing a deal with the Cavs means Randolph will likely be in line for a $50,ooo bonus should he return to the Charge.

Newman, 22, is 6-3 and spent the first part of his rookie season with the G-League’s Sioux Falls Skyforce before being traded to the Charge. He went undrafted out of Kansas in 2018.

Newman averaged 12.0 points and 3.0 rebounds in 25 games with the Charge. Like Randolph, he is likely headed back there this season.

The Cavs currently have 16 players under contract. That includes one two-way player in rookie power forward Dean Wade and three players expected to be on non-guaranteed deals — young guards Sindarius Thornwell and J.P. Macura, and rookie big man Marques Bolden.

Training camp begins at the end of September.

  1. Don’t the Cavs actually have 17 guys under contract (before Randolph and Newman) then?
    Unless one of their 3 draft picks didn’t sign yet or something…

    Sexton, Osman, Zizic, Nance, Love, Thompson, Henson, Dellavedova, Knight, and Clarkson…that’s 10.
    Garland, Windler, and Porter…if all three rookies are signed makes 13.
    Dean Wade on the two way makes 14.
    Thornwell, Macura, and Bolden for training camp makes 17.

    Then these new two training camp invites, Randolph and Newman makes 19.

    I assume you meant 16 players before the two you were reporting, but that still seems to be 17 then.

    So, they have 19 total now. That leaves one spot left for the training camp roster, right?
