Chasson Randle’s Attempts To Sign 10-Day NBA Contract Blocked By Chinese Team

Chasson Randle has twice tried to sign 10-day contracts with NBA teams, but he has been unable to obtain his FIBA letter of clearance from the Tianjin Gold Lions.

Chasson returned to the United States on January 26th after the Chinese Basketball Association suspended play due to the coronavirus outbreak.

"His payments are currently behind with no date provided of when he will receive salary owed," agent Darrell Comer told ESPN. "He has been offered opportunities to sign 10-day contracts with NBA teams, but Tianjin has denied his FIBA clearance despite the fact that the 10-day contracts will expire before all rumored dates if the China season will resume.

"Chasson is not only being prevented from making income, but also from furthering his career as a NBA player. We are speaking to bring awareness to this unfair issue for Chasson, but also for the other talented players who are back from China and may experience similar issues soon."
