With the trade deadline drawing near, the rumor pots are being stirred, with many talks of big names switching uniforms and young prospects being dealt, giving new life to their almost fading potential.
For the New York Knicks, Donnie Walsh has set a nice foundation for Mike D'Antoni and the Knicks staff to build around. The team is young, lively and believes they can win.
But there are still some missing pieces to the puzzle needed and the Knicks have some chips they can play right now to set themselves up to get the players they need to become elite. One of those chips is Anthony Randolph.
The 21-year-old, West Germany native has seen little action in the Big Apple, but is still viewed as a guy who can turn into a really good player with some good coaching and hard work, so he still has value. The Knicks traded for him in hopes that he would flourish in the run and gun style he was successful at the end of last year with Golden State, but he just hasn't meshed with the team playing style, meaning little playing time.
The Knicks have discussed trades for players or a first-round draft pick, but so far none of the talks have really heated up to the point where a deal was almost in place. Here are 10 possible landing spots for Randolph and as a fan of the orange and blue myself, I think its better suited saying "10 teams that will pay to take our trash".
Note: The first five teams are just franchises I believe would benefit from adding Mr. Randolph. The next five are teams that have actually voice interest in acquiring him, thus being more likely suitors.
