Multiple sources have confirmed and are reporting a three-way trade between the Knicks, Los Angeles Clippers and Golden State Warriors. Randolph would head to the Clippers and Jamal Crawford to the Warriors, with the Knicks receiving Al Harrington from the Warriors and Tim Thomas and Cuttino Mobley from the Clippers.
Ink hasn’t dried yet but it appears to be a done deal.
Essentially it’s a salary clearing tactic for the Knicks. All three contracts they receive expire in 2010.
The deal could be finalized as early as Friday afternoon.
After averaging 17.6 points and 10.3 rebounds his first year in New York, Randolph is putting up 20.5 points and grabbing 12.5 rebounds playing out of position at center for head coach Mike D’Antoni.
But money talks. And right now the Knicks coin is saying “we’re trying to free up room for LeBron James or another marquee free agent.”
