Julius Randle is 100% honest about the Knicks’ future after an injury-plagued season

The New York Knicks are here to remain one of the most competitive teams in the league; this is quite a turnaround after the Knicks have endured mismanagement over the last 20 years. The Knicks came within one win of reaching the Eastern Conference finals, and that was despite all the injury problems they endured, including that of All-Star forward Julius Randle.

Randle still has two years remaining on his current contract, although he could opt out of his contract at the end of next season in search of a larger contract. With Jalen Brunson up for a huge contract extension soon, the Knicks could face a financial crisis sooner rather than later, especially if they manage to re-sign OG Anunoby in this year’s free agency.

Nonetheless, the 29-year-old forward has expressed his desire to remain in the Big Apple for the foreseeable future.

“I always said from the beginning that I would love to be here in New York and that I would love to continue to add to what the guys did in the playoffs. I feel like that was my biggest personal goal, or I would say the team’s goal in a way, when I got here was to be able to build and compete and be at the point where we are now, where it’s a real chance [of winning a championship],” Randle said, according to Stefan Bondy of the New York Post.
