The Washington Wizards announced today that the team has signed guard Chasson Randle from the Capital City Go-Go, the team’s NBA G League affiliate. Randle has appeared in seven games this season with the Go-Go, averaging 23.1 points, 4.9 assists and 3.7 rebounds per game. Randle has scored at least 20 points in six of his seven games played with the team this season and is shooting 50.4 percent from the field and 46.8 percent from three. The Stanford-product earned an NBA call-up earlier this season, but did not appear in any games for the Wizards.

Memphis Grizzlies General Manager Chris Wallace today announced the team signed guard Marquis Teague to a 10-day contract as a Call-Up from the NBA G League’s Memphis Hustle. Teague becomes the first GATORADE Call-Up in Hustle franchise history. Teague (6-2, 180) started in all 47 of his games with the Hustle this season and averaged 17.6 points, 3.4 rebounds and 6.1 assists in 32.5 minutes while shooting 45.5 percent from the field, 42.7 percent from three-point range and 78.2 percent from the free throw line. He has led the Hustle in total points, total assists and free throws made and attempted during the team’s inaugural season in the G League. In the month of March, Teague averaged 22.7 points, 3.0 rebounds and 7.8 assists in 34.7 minutes for the Hustle.

Hardaway Jr. envisioned a great partnership if point guard Trey Burke is called up from the G-League. Together at the University of Michigan, they made up one of the best backcourts in the NCAA. “It’d be great if he does get called up. We play off one another very, very well,” Hardaway Jr. said. “I would definitely be happy with him. It would be like the old times; just him bringing the ball up the court and me running the wing, just doing our thing. It won’t take that long for us to mesh. That’s a positive.”

Knicks to call up Trey Burke?

The Knicks’ offense is floundering and there’s a desire from some in the organization to call up their G-League star Trey Burke, a source told the Daily News. However, there’s also a big obstacle to such a move — the team would need to create a roster spot. Burke, a 25-year-old point guard, signed with the Knicks in October but was immediately released and sent down to the G-League team in Westchester, where he’s averaging 27.3 points and shooting nearly 50 percent.
