Sources: Knicks To Trade Anthony Randolph For Pick Soon

According to a report on, league sources say the Knicks will trade Anthony Randolph for a first-round draft choice within the next two weeks.

Minnesota, Indiana and Portland are said to be considered the most likely destinations for the 21-year-old power forward.

Knicks president Donnie Walsh met with Randolph’s agent, Bill Duffy, before the Knicks played against the Kings Friday night at Madison Square Garden.

The ideal scenario for New York is to use the first-round pick they acquire for Randolph in a package to acquire Carmelo Anthony from the Denver Nuggets. But the Randolph trade is said to not be completely related to the Knicks’ pursuit of Anthony.

    Why do Knicks need to trade for Melo? He wants to play in NY and can veto trades elsewhere. Why not just sign him after the season?

      Exactly right, Barbella. Save that #1 draft pick they’re getting for Randolph and get the physical, board-banging center that is so needed.
