The New York Knicks need to embrace the youth movement by trading veterans like Julius Randle and Evan Fournier. Knicks have a few options when it comes to moving these guys, especially Randle, but there is one deal that stands out the most.
A recent article published in the Daily Knicks Suggested two trade Julius RandleAnd, I’m a big fan of the second deal that includes the Los Angeles LeBrons, I mean the Lakers. I think that would be a perfect deal for both teams, but we’ll focus on the Knicks here because I don’t get paid by Lake Show Life, so they can read this article and talk about it or not, I really don’t care. Also, the Lakers gave away Carmelo Anthony’s numberso they did not get love.
This trade Julius Randle is the best choice for the Knicks

2029 first round pick (via Los Angeles)
Honestly, I cheer for the Lakers every game they play as long as it’s not against the Knicks. I’m obsessed with LeBron James and think about him a few times a day, plus helping Melo, all true Knicks fans take root wherever No.7 goes. This trade makes sense for both teams, as I’ve watched both teams extensively.
Lakers Randall and Fournier reception It will give them more talent from the rip off, which they need because with no picks and LeBron being 37, they are in full winning position now. That’s it for them, so let’s get into why New York is doing this trade.
I know many of you hear the name Russell Westbrook and your first instinct is to tune in to social media and follow the trend that it’s “cool” to hate on one of the five best guards in NBA history… an eccentric.
This trade was clearly not made for the Knicks to acquire Westbrook. In this scenario, New York would buy the Triple-Goat and allow him to walk to the opponent as he looks to bounce. Westbrook Rental Agent Jeff SchwartzHe is an expert in facilitating acquisitions, so a Westbrook deal/acquisition will be inevitable.
The Knicks, in this trade, will have two first-round picks from the Lakers, first-round 2027 and first-rounder in 2029. I think it’s wishful thinking to have both, but L.A. doesn’t have the clout.
Let’s even say the Knicks will only get one in the first round of the Lakers. It will most likely be of great value. It’s hard to imagine LeBron still playing in 2029, as much as I wish the guy would still be in the arena. LeBron doesn’t care about these choices, and Los Angeles should trade them in to build as many rivals as possible around the King.
In the wake of The Donovan Mitchell Epic, the Knicks will step up with their young players and add to their assets with salary cuts, so they will have more assets to make a deal. We all know another superstar is coming to market soon, this is the new way in the NBA.
For New York, this trade will provide minutes for younger players, make the cap space more flexible, and add assets. L.A. would have an above-average shooter in Evan Fournier and also a touchdown with Julius Randle, who, if he could bounce back, would give the Lakers a bad front foot.
This trade will be a huge win for the Knicks in every possible way. It’s very well worth it if the Lakers are willing to give up just one first player. More importantly, it will allow the Knicks to let the younger kids play, which is what really matters at this point in the game.
it’s the Royal Jordanian Barrett Era. Time to embrace her with open arms, eh?
