With the rumor out that the Kings could acquire Kanter before the trade deadline, would it be a good move by Vlade Divac and company if they were to pull the trigger?

NY and Sacramento discussing an Enes Kanter-Zach Randolph trade of expiring contracts, but nothing close yet, league sources tell ESPN.

According to newsday.com, which cited a Knicks source, the Kanter situation is expected to work itself out, however, there hasn't been a "robust market" for the center.

It's unclear if this deal will materialize, but it would be a step in the right direction for the Knicks.

Randolph, 37, hasn't played for the Kings this season and probably wouldn't suit up for the Knicks if the Kings trade him.

As mentioned in a previous post, there are several unidentified teams interested in trading for Kanter. Offloading Kanter allowed Fizdale to take a closer look at all corners of the roster, which include young big men Mitchell Robinson (recovering from injury) and Luke Kornet.

The Knicks on the other hand want to create space for a superstar in the upcoming summer so they will be busy. But if the Knicks can manage to sneak Courtney Lee or Tim Hardaway Jr. into a deal, this trade would become a home run.

Both players are on expiring contracts. With that being said, a recent rumor has risen in the National Basketball Association community pertaining to a possible trade the Kings might pull off. The Turkish center quickly established himself as an important player in Utah, however, the team eventually traded him to the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2015.
