New York Knicks: Sacramento emerges as possible Enes Kanter destination

11 January 2019

New York Knicks may have found a trade partner for the Turkish starWhat's the rumor?

Because the Knicks have 15 players on their roster, it means they could not take on another of Sacramento's expiring contracts unless they waive someone.

As Wojnarowski reports, the Kings are hoping to send out more expirings in the swap.

Zach Randolph could be returning to NY if the National Basketball Association trade deal involving Enes Kanter materializes.

Kanter carries an $18.6 million salary this season, while Randolph is earning $11.7 million.

Throughout his National Basketball Association career, Kanter has played with three different teams in seven-and-a-half seasons. Hence why a third team might be needed. Randolph, 37, has not appeared in a game. He spent the 2007-08 season and part of the following season with the Knicks.

But teams have reportedly inquired about Kanter, and the Knicks have listened.

Kanter is averaging 31.4 FanDuel points per game this season. But when one looks at the ploys that the Knicks are using, it seems that focus is more on the younger players and planning ahead.

The Kings were optimistic after deploying Cauley-Stein as a full-time center for the first time last season, seeing encouraging results and flashes of consistency, but wanted to see another season of it before committing to an extension of his rookie contract. 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.
