The Knicks have not landed Anthony Davisbut maybe they can go to another pelicans center.
New York would be a fan of Julius Randle, according to Marc Berman of the New York Post, and could pursue it when free will begins in two weeks.
Randle, 24, will not exercise his $ 9 million player option in New Orleans to test the free agency, according to The Athletic & Shams Charania.
The Knicks, who are supposed to sue Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard, among others, have enough room to capture two free agents to maximize the number of contracts after recovering Allonzo TrierTeam option of $ 3.5 million for 2019-2020.
Randle, the No. 7 pick in the 2014 draft, averaged 21.4 points – a career high – and 8.7 rebounds in 73 games with New Orleans last season. He retired after the pelicans delivered Davis to the Lakers for Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and three first-round picks.
