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.
