ENES Kanter could find himself in a new address.
The New York Knicks are in talks with the Sacramento Kings about trading Kanter for Zach Randolph, whose contracts are both expiring.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported the development late Wednesday, Manila time.
New York and Sacramento discussing an Enes Kanter-Zach Randolph trade of expiring contracts, but nothing close yet, league sources tell ESPN. Kings would want to send out more expirings in a deal. A third team could be helpful.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) January 9, 2019
The veteran sportswriter, though, added that the deal is far from sealed, suggesting the Kings to add more expiring-contract players to the deal, while a third-party team could also speed up negotiations.
Kanter, who’s earning $18.6 million this season, has put up a solid performance this year with averages of 14.4 points, 11 rebounds, and two assists in 26.5 minutes in 41 games, but is slowly being removed from coach David Fizdale’s rotation.
The 37-year-old Randolph, who is owed $11.6 million this year, has yet to see action for the Kings this season after norming 14.5 points, 6.7 boards, and 2.2 assists in 59 games last year.
