The Adelaide 36ers have completed their trio of imports with the signing of Craig Randall II. Joining the 36ers along side fellow Americans Antonius Cleveland and Robert Franks.

Standing at six foot four, Randall is a guard that Adelaide desperately needed in their rotations. Playing last season in the NBA’s G-League for the Long Island Nets, he averaged 26.2 points, 5.5 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game.

Before joining Adelaide, Randall was linked to a move to other NBL clubs in Brisbane Bullets and Illawarra Hawks.

During Randall’s time in the G-League last season, he was second in points per game across the entire competition. This helped him onto win the G-League’s Most Improved player award in the 2021/22 season.

Randall played in the 2022 NBA Summer League alongside former Sydney King Didi Louzada for the Portland Trailblazers. Averaging 7.3 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1 assist across 20.3 minutes per game. The Trailblazers went on to win the Las Vegas Summer League Championship.

The 36ers roster may have a bit of a shake-up on its hands, as Robert Franks has been reportedly receiving offers from many European clubs. But Adelaide are confident they can keep their star power forward.

Randall joins the 36ers roster which already has Mitch McCarron, Sunday Dech, Antonius Cleveland, Anthony Drmic, Nick Marshall (DP), Hyrum Harris, Robert Franks, Daniel Johnson, Kyrin Galloway and Kai Sotto under contract.

Adelaide start their season on October 13th when they play the Tasmania JackJumpers at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre.
