Knicks, Kings Talking Trade Involving Enes Kanter, Zach Randolph

Knicks talking possible Kanter trade with Kings

NY and Sacramento discussing an Enes Kanter-Zach Randolph trade of expiring contracts, but nothing close yet, league sources tell ESPN.

NY and Sacramento are in talks about an Enes Kanter, Zach Randolph trade of expiring contracts, according to ESPN, which cited unidentified league sources, though a deal is not close yet. He's making just under $12 million this season. Randolph has yet to play.

Seeing limited minutes but carrying an enormous paycheck, it may not be surprising if the New York Knicks suddenly deal off Enes Kanter to teams with sensible offers. A third team could be helpful.

Both of these players have expiring contracts and will be free agents after this year.

Randolph, 37, is at the twilight of his National Basketball Association career. Further, returning to the Knicks would make sense since the head coach, David Fizdale, is pretty much familiar with how to use Z-Bo, unless New York has other plans such as a waive or buyout, the NY Daily News reported.

The deal would provide a return to NY for Randolph, who spent 80 games with the Knicks between 2007-2009.

Despite limited action, Kanter said that he is happy in NY.

Randolph is still having a productive season even at age 37, as he is averaging 14.5 points and 6.7 rebounds per game in his first year with Sacramento. Expect a few Knicks players to be traded. With that being said, a recent rumor has risen in the National Basketball Association community pertaining to a possible trade the Kings might pull off.
