Despite the disappointing course that the New York Knicks are starring in, there was nothing to think that Julius Randle could be the one indicated. It is true that their performance has suffered a considerable drop compared to last year. But with his renewal, the franchise had given him the keys to the team in order to put together a winning project that would attract the best in the world in the medium term. However, the day has come, and the media apparatus that surrounds New Yorkers is already beginning to crow about the possible exit of the All-NBA player seven months ago.
As always in these cases, the information comes from media very close to the present knickerbocker. In his last intervention in Sports New York TV, Ian Begley explores the frustration experienced by the locker room these days and speaks of the possibility of the Knicks listening to offers for Julius Randle. This does not mean that the franchise is looking to trade him, but it does open the ears of teams that are interested in acquiring him. According to Begley, they would only let him out if the indicated offer arrives, of which there are no further details.
Randle is yet to start the contract he signed with the Knicks for four years and $117 million. The situation must be very unhinged —and perhaps it is— to put it on the market at the first opportunity.
