Former Cal star Jerome Randle has reached an agreement to sign with a professional basketball team team in Turkey, according to Turkbasket.com. Randle will sign with Petkim Aliaga, which begins its season in mid-October.
The headline of the article refers to Randle as Super Squirt, and we assume it was an accurate translation.
Randle reportedly was considering signing with Partizan, a Serbian team, but apparently has decided instead to sign with the team in Turkey.
At least Randle will have Patrick Christopher nearby, as he also has signed with a Turkish team for the next season. I can't imagine this is where Randle wanted to end up, but I assume he'll use this as an opportunity to develop himself for another league audition for next summer. And the money in Europe is way better than the money in the D-League.
Good luck Jerome! Hopefully we'll see you soon enough.
