Randy Foye (born September 24, 1983 in Newark, New Jerseymarker) is an Americanmarker professional basketball player currently with the NBA's Washington Wizards. He previously played for Villanova Universitymarker. He was selected seventh overall in the 2006 NBA Draft by the Boston Celtics, immediately traded to the Portland Trail Blazers, and later traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves. Foye attended East Side High Schoolmarker in Newarkmarker, where he was selected as New Jersey Player of the Year, before being recruited by Jay Wright and Villanova.


Foye, along with Allan Ray, Curtis Sumpter, and Jason Fraser were proclaimed as the players to lead the Villanova Wildcats back to a championship. Foye and Ray reached the Elite Eight of the 2006 NCAA Tournament, playing with the other three starters in the four-guard offense; Kyle Lowry, Mike Nardi and Will Sheridan, while Sumpter was sidelined as a medical red-shirt with a knee injury.

Foye's career was extremely productive and eventful at Villanova, but his senior season was by far the best statistically.

In the 2005 NCAA Tournament, Foye averaged 20 points in three games, before a heartbreaking loss to #1 seed and eventual national champion North Carolinamarker in which Foye scored a career-high 28 points. He was named third-team all Big East that year.

In 2006, Foye won the honor of Big East Player of the Year, beating out teammate Allan Ray, Connecticutmarker star Rudy Gay and the league's leading scorer Quincy Douby of Rutgersmarker.

Villanova tied for the Big East regular season championship with Uconn and split their two games with the Huskies, winning the one played at home, in what some called the biggest Villanova win in over 20 years. Their final Big East regular season record was 14–2 in what some called the toughest conference ever. Overall, their record was 28–5. In the NCAA Tournament in 2006, Foye continued to be Villanova's biggest scoring threat. He had 24 points in their second round game against Arizonamarker in a winning effort. Foye scored a team-high 25 points in his final game as a Wildcat, on March 26, 2006, a 75–62 loss to Floridamarker in the Elite Eight.

As a senior Foye averaged 20.5 points, 5.9 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.4 steals, and 0.6 blocks, with a field goal percentage of 41.1%.

NBA career

Minnesota Timberwolves

Foye entered his rookie year on a team that already had six guards on its roster. Off-season free-agent acquisition Mike James was slated to start at point guard, Foye's most likely position in the NBA, with Ricky Davis at small forward and Rashad McCants at shooting guard. This left Foye to battle for minutes on a bench full of guards. In November, Foye's first month as a professional basketball player, Timberwolves coach Dwane Casey only gave Foye an average of 14.6 minutes per game. Foye, however, was productive whenever he was given minutes. He scored in double digits in each of the four games he was given 20 or more minutes of playing time.
Foye as a member of the Washington Wizards
When Allen Iverson demanded a trade, Foye's name was perhaps the most mentioned name in hypothetical deals. His Villanova pedigree made him appealing to the Philadelphia 76ers, and Kevin Garnett, Foye's All-Star teammate, was clearly growing frustrated by the mediocrity of his team, making it an opportune time for Minnesota to trade youth for proven talent. Iverson was later traded to the Denver Nuggets.

In December 2007, Foye's minutes per game average increased to 19.6 and he scored in double digits in half of the T-Wolves' games. However, after Dwane Casey's firing after the Twolves' 40th game (when they had a record of 20–20), the Twolves struggled, yet the young star played well when given minutes. In March, Foye saw nearly 24 minutes of playing time a night, and in April saw almost 27 minutes a night to perform.

Foye played all 82 games (12 starts) in his rookie season and averaged 22.9 minutes, 10.1 points, 2.7 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 0.65 steals, and 0.3 blocks per game. Among rookies, he ranked fifth in scoring (10.1 ppg), eighth in field goal percentage (43.4%), third in 3-point shooting perecentage (37%), third in free throw shooting percentage (85%), 5th in assists (2.8 apg) and 9th in steals (0.65 spg). He was one of the most consistent rookie performers and was selected to the NBA All-Rookie First Team.

On December 23, 2008, Foye pulled down 16 rebounds to set a career high and break the team record of 15 for a guard set by Isaiah Rider in 1996. Foye also had 26 points and 1 assist in the 99–93 loss to the San Antonio Spurs.

Washington Wizards

On June 23, 2009, Foye, along with Mike Miller, was traded to the Washington Wizards for Oleksiy Pecherov, Etan Thomas, Darius Songaila, and a first round draft pick.

Medical notes

In June 2006, it was reported that Foye has the rare condition situs inversus, which means his organs are arranged as the mirror image of a normal person's: for example, his heart is in the right side of his chest rather than the left. However, it is not expected that this fact will have an impact on his game.
