Knicks reportedly remain open to trading Julius Randle

Back at the trade deadline in February, the Knicks and Hornets discussed a Julius Randle trade, it just never came together. New York continued to stumble through the season, with the combination of Randle and RJ Barrett — two ball-dominant, inefficient scorers who don’t space the floor — never meshing.

Now officially onto their offseason (the Knicks are not one of the 22 teams headed to the NBA restart in Orlando), New York and new team president Leon Rose remain open to trading Randle, reports Marc Berman of the New York Post in a Q&A.

Undoubtedly the Knicks are open to [trading Randle]. His contract for next season ($18.9 million) is manageable but the downside is he will count $4 million on the 2021 cap if they don’t exercise his team option after next season. The 2021 free-agent class is golden. Randle had his moments as a double-double force and is still early in his prime. But Randle’s defense is below average and it’s been reported here his knack of over-dribbling frustrated some teammates, including RJ Barrett. And a bigger disappointment was Randle lost his magic from the 3-point line (27.7 percent). As David Fizdale noted recently, the Knicks could use a 3-point shooting stretch 4. Someone like, say Kristaps Porzingis.


Quality little dig with Porzingis at the end.

The challenge in trading Randle becomes finding a dance partner. Randle has talent and is a floor raiser for a struggling team — he averaged 19.5 points and 9.7 rebounds a game — but he’s not a consistent All-Star level talent teams are going to build around. Going back to the trade deadline, Randle would have made Charlotte better in the short term, but long term the Hornets are better off going into the draft lottery and adding talent rather than trying to make a late push for the eighth seed.

What role Randle plays for the Knicks next year will depend on the coach Rose hires — likely Tom Thibodeau — and what direction the organization goes in terms of building with youth vs. going after veterans. Rose has a lot of other things higher up on his to-do list than a Randle trade at this point.

I think trading Randle is definitely a priority if you want to start building with RJ's development in mind

Randle for CP3 and 6 first rounds picks. make the trade presti or pay millions in luxury tax when the cap goes down. Edit: I have no idea how less revenue is going to affect the cap but if it does affect teams in a big way we should take advantage of teams that want to shed salary.

Whoever expecting Randle to get traded will be greatly disappointed. Marc Berman always predicts the opposite of what really happens and Leon Rose is close to Randle. If anything, he just confirmed he’s here for another 5 years. Great news! Hahahaha

OP still can’t accept that he’s a Knick. Must suck living in an alternate reality. Sad! Lmfaoo. I gotta say these threads based on Berman really do make my day sometimes. Thanks OP. :D

Randle as a primary option = god awful
Randle as a secondary option = awful
Randle as a third option = bad, but tolerable
Randle as a fourth option = ideal

This is the issue with Randle. Now the question is whether we can ever build a team where Randle's the 4th option. My guess is no. Therefore, we should ship him away.

I’d trade him for $20. Nice guy, but my goodness it’s so cringe to watch like 80% of the time.

Yes signing Randle to go with Mitch and Barrett was a no brainer

Trading him for expiring scrubs and the best pick you can get, and just playing the youngins should shave 5 wins off our record, which will be crucial in the upcoming tank war.

Just trade him for an expiring and a pick. Period. I simply can't stand watching him play basketball. It hurts my eyes.

Good sign that we are open to trade him, but it will be tough to find a decent deal. Give me Batums contract and a 2nd rounder or something and id be happy...even for just Batum i would do it just to move on
