Ex-Cal star Jerome Randle made his NBA summer league debut Monday, totaling eight points, six rebounds and five assists in just under 22 minutes of the Orlando Magic’s 86-77 loss to Indiana in Orlando.
Randle, the Pac-10 Player of the Year who signed a summer-league deal with the Magic, shot just 3-for-9, including 0-for-3 from 3-point range. But he seemingly did everything else the team would want from a point guard, making both his free throws, collecting a pair of steals and turning the ball over just once.
In another game at Orlando, one-time Cal player Rod Benson, a regular in the developmental league the past couple seasons, had three points in 5 1/2 minutes of Utah’s 85-83 loss to Charlotte.
