Enes Kanter could be about to leave the New York Knicks

Enes Kanter #00 of the New York Knicks looks on during the game against the Sacramento Kings on March 4, 2018 at Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California.

Because the Knicks have 15 players on their roster, it means they could not take on another of Sacramento's expiring contracts unless they waive someone. He adds the Kings want to send out more expiring deals in the move.

Kanter carries an $18.6 million salary this season, while Randolph is earning $11.7 million. Randolph has yet to play. Hence why a third team might be needed.

Randolph, 37, is at the twilight of his National Basketball Association career.

It's unclear if this deal will materialize, but it would be a step in the right direction for the Knicks.

As mentioned in a previous post, there are several unidentified teams interested in trading for Kanter.

Kanter, 26, is averaging 14.4 points and 11 rebounds per contest in 41 games with the Knicks this season. But if the Knicks can manage to sneak Courtney Lee or Tim Hardaway Jr. into a deal, this trade would become a home run.

As Wojnarowski points out, nothing is close yet, but this may be the best opportunity the Knicks have to unload some of their veterans before the trade deadline.
