Randle is like Zion
RJ isn't really like Ingram
Ball is like Ball.
If the Pels are kinda/sorta having some issues with a Ball/Ingram/Zion lineup where Ingram is a more advanced "get his own shot" guy vs RJ right now, why would the Knicks be that much better with a similar set of players, only RJ isn't as good as Ingram - yet.
Other than RJ is a more team oriented player than Ingram, but I don't think that changes the equation.
Again, I'd be fine with the Knicks getting him. It depends who the other wing is for next 2 years of RJ's development.
Biggest difference between Knicks and the Pelicans is defense. They are bottom 5 in the league in defense while the Knicks have been one of the best defensive teams. As good as Zion and Ingram are on offense, they seem like liabilities on defense.
Offensively the Pelicans have a top 10 rating while the Knicks are around 20. Pelicans do seem like they have some issues.
