Brian Randle underwent comprehensive medical tests at Ichilov Hospital and passed them all. The results of cardiological tests were all clear, as well, and match the results of the tests the player underwent in his hometown of Chicago. Randle has received complete medical clearance and will join Maccabi's roster.
The forward was considered one of the best surprises of the season last year, with averages of 15.4 index points, 12 points (64% from 2), 5.6 rebounds, 2 assists, 1.5 steals, and 1.2 blocks per game in the Euroleague. In the Israeli League, Randle posted averages of 10.8 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game.
Randle had this to say about the team's current roster: "I know some of the guys, Jordan Farmar from the NBA, Trevor Mbakwe and Faverani a little less. I think it's a talented team, with guys who have played at the highest levels and succeeded, and put together with the guys who were there already, I'm hoping for the best."
