The Knicks trade proposal gives up LeBron James from the Lakers

A frosty relationship between Paul and Knicks president Leon Rose was also a potential obstacle to James’ move to New York, an idea James has teased multiple times throughout his storied career. But the two sides have come together to resolve their long-standing differences.

This could pave the way for future relationships. However, the Knicks would have to work hard to afford James in free agency.

Instead, this hypothetical package could land James if he doesn’t reach free agency.

The Knicks get:

– LeBron James

The Lakers get:

–Julius Randle
– Bojan Bogdanovic
– 2024 first-round pick
– 2027 first-round pick (lottery protected)
– 2024 second-round pick (via UTA)
– 2025 second-round pick

This trade would add approximately $2 million to the Knicks’ books for what could very well be the final season of James’ career.
