Julius Randle could be sacrificed for landing a star at the Knicks

The Knicks’ search for a top-tier star could cost them one of the cornerstones of their resurgence.

SNY Knicks insider Ian Begley believes it will be Julius Randle. “If the Knicks make a trade for a star player, it looks like they should move RJ Barrett or Julius Randle to make it work. If I had to guess, I would think Barrett’s performance in the playoffs bolsters the odds of him staying in New York in that Randle-or-Barrett scenario,” Begley wrote.
