Knicks Rumors: NY Inquiring About Julius Randle Trade; Unlikely to Happen This Summer

·1 min read

The New York Knicks reportedly held exploratory conversations about a potential trade of power forward Julius Randle.

Fred Katz of The Athletic reported Tuesday on the Callin Shots podcast (h/t R.P. Salao of Clutch Points) a deal would be tough because New York isn't in a position of strength after the 2021 All-Star's play took a step back last season.

"The Knicks have inquired with other teams about moving Julius Randle," Katz said. "I'm not optimistic. If you're somebody who wants them to trade Randle, I wouldn't predict that's what happens this summer. We're talking about like giving him away. Maybe if you take back a contract of equal value."
