    Sources: N.Y. dealing Anthony Randolph

    The New York Knicks will trade Anthony Randolph for a first-round draft pick within the next two weeks, according to league sources.


    Minnesota, Indiana and Portland are among the likeliest destinations.




    A. Randolph


    The Knicks' ideal scenario is to use the first-round pick they acquire for Randolph in a package for Denver's Carmelo Anthony. But the Randolph trade is not completely related to New York's pursuit of Anthony.


    While the Nuggets and New Jersey Nets continue to discuss a possible three-team trade with the Detroit Pistons that would make Anthony a Net, the Knicks are seeking teams that might help them sweeten a potential offer to Denver.


    The Knicks reached out to Memphis recently to discuss sending O.J. Mayo to Denver, but the Nuggets have made it known that they have no interest in Mayo.


    Sources with knowledge of the Nuggets and Nets discussions said the two clubs have yet to reach an agreement in principle, and that talks are likely to drag out over the next week or so.


    Anthony's willingness to go to New Jersey is a key holdup of the potential trade, as the All-Star forward has not agreed to sign the three-year, $65 million extension that is a prerequisite for the deal.


    Even as the tension surrounding the Nuggets grows, sources maintain that Anthony is in no hurry and that he has not ruled out playing the entire season in Denver and signing with the Knicks as a free agent.


    The problem with that scenario -- and one of the main reasons Anthony has not shut the door on New Jersey completely -- is that the upcoming collective bargaining agreement could force Anthony to settle for millions of dollars less. Also, the Knicks may not have enough room to offer Anthony a max deal (whatever that may look like under the new rules) unless they renounce Wilson Chandler.

    I hope so. Our first round pick isn't going to get us anyone. Maybe Kyle Singler or someone like Marcus Morris. I'd rather have Anthony Randolph. He's only 21.

    I bet he's going to Minnesota.
    We need better than solid. No JJ Redicks, Andray Blatche, Mike Dunleavy type guys to have big roles on our team.

    I'd go for it - this draft looks completely hit or miss across the board. Plus, news of Irving and Barnes maybe going back for another year, plus we won't be in range of any of the top talent anyway.

    TJ Ford and Travis Best make me question why I like little point guards. They make me want to die.

    Hopefully he can become a decent guy off the bench and help this team's post defense if we do acquire him.

    Please TJ Ford.

    We definitely need him more than Minnesota and Portland. We need any kind of big man we can get.

    Anthony Randolph would start for us. That isn't a bash on Hansbrough or Josh, but Randolph is just a better player.

    I don't think he will play if they get him, he is not the type of player JOB likes(can't shoot the three, too young and is too fast for his liking)

    The only players that work in a trade for Randolph are Dahntay and Solo.

    For the first few games, we'd probably let him come off the bench and let him adjust to playing rotation minutes again and the other players on this team.

    The PF rotation of Randolph and Tyler would be pretty good.

    If it is going to cost us a 1st rounder, I really don't care where Randolph goes, as long as it's not here.

    First off, Randolph adds nothing to our team... he is not playing any better than our current PFs. So why in the world would we want to spend a first rounder on a marginal player that is also redundant?

    Secondly, I would hope that a 1st round pick would be much better used in a trade that would net us a lot better player than Randolph... so hold out for a later opportunity.

    Our pick certainly will NOT be as low as 20 as stated by an earlier poster. If we are lucky enough to make the playoffs, we will have one of the two worst records of teams in the playoffs. So, our pick will be no worse than 16th. On the upper end, unless we totally tank, it will be no better than 13th.

    If he continues to add more weight and strength, his post defense can become a lot better.

    He reminds me of JaVale McGee on the defensive end so far.

    He's a good shot blocker around the post.

    It would also suck if Larry helps Donnie get Melo, making it harder for the Pacers to do anything.

    It's Minnesota, we're only mentioned b/c of the rumor we were offering a 1st over the summer.

    Though I wouldn't mind it being us, as I don't like Granger at the 4, and I would prefer Randolph backing up Hansbrough over anyone else on the team.

    Thing is, if it is us, we have to free a roster spot or throw in a player as well

    Why all the love for Anthony Randolph? I'm confused...when was the last time you saw this guy play? If he comes here he'll be injured in a month. Let's give up a first round pick where we will be drafting anywhere from 10 to 16 more than likely for a guy that can't get off then bench in New York. I'll take my chances in the lottery or with an early playoff pick. Pass...
    Here we come lottery?

    Not a fan, personally. Would rather package our first-rounder for something else (starting-caliber PF?).

    There's no need to waste a 1st round pick on a player that won't get off the inactive list.

    That's the NBA for you. NO BOYS ALLOWED. Granted the kid was extremely young and extremely embarrassed. He got a little emotional. that doesnt minimize his toughness. Sometimes people get so angered that they get misty eyed. I'd be all for picking up AR. Some say he's redundant but the only player we have that is Comparable is Josh. He's miles ahead of Josh offensively and with the added bulk I'd say he'd be an asset defensively.

    AR, Josh, Roy and Tyler would be a good collection of young bigs as all would compliment each others game.
