Trade Deadline

The Knicks just traded a player that they traded a 1st round pick (Kevin Knox), and a 1st round pick for in Cam Reddish, for another conditional 1st round pick and a mediocre quazi-starter/bench player. I'm not even going to say this makes no sense. I'm just going to ride with it.

If it were me, and it isn't I'd trade Julius Randle today while his value is high because I know it won't stay there forever. I'd trade Randle and any center to Phoenix for Deandre Ayton. My new lineup would be Brunson, Hart (he's a wash over QG), Barrett, Obi, Ayton. Tired of watching the Knicks play 4 on 5 offensively, and equally tired of watching Julius Randle play 40 minutes on nights where he is 3-15 because Tibs has blind loyalty.

Moving Randle for Ayton gives the Knicks 5 scorers, more efficiency (true scoring percentage), and a center to counter Embid. Just my 2 cents.
