New York Knicks: Sacramento emerges as possible Enes Kanter destination

New York Knicks: Sacramento emerges as possible Enes Kanter destination

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Wednesday morning that the Knicks are in talks with the Sacramento Kings to trade the expiring contract of Kanter's for Zach Randolph, who will also be a free agent following the 2018-19 season.

Wojnarowski adds that the two sides are not close yet and the Kings would like to trade away more of their expiring contracts in a deal.

Despite Kanter making $18.6 million this year, the Kings have the flexibility to pull off this deal as they now have around $11 million in cap space.

The New York Knicks have made a decision to emphasize developing their younger players in what has quickly become a lost season, and that could mean parting ways with veteran center Enes Kanter.

Enes Kanter and the New York Knicks are not on the same page. A third team could be helpful.

Shutdown has stopped most US food inspections, FDA chief says
Other consumer advocacy groups have argued that postponing the FDA inspections will put the American food supply at risk. It comes as the agency continues to deal with an absent workforce, thanks to the government shutdown.

But teams have reportedly inquired about Kanter, and the Knicks have listened.

Trading Kanter for Randolph doesn't seem like a good trade because Kanter is much better than Randolph.

Kanter, who has been averaging 14.4 points and 11 rebounds in 26.5 minutes per game this season, was sent to the Knicks from the Thunder as part of the Carmelo Anthony trade in September 2017. Expect a few Knicks players to be traded. On the other end, the Knicks would be getting players with expiring contracts, which would no longer be a concern come the 2019-20 season.

With the trade deadline nearby, expect a lot more trade discussions.
