NBA fans were treated to some major trade news out of nowhere when the Knicks sent RJ Barrett and Immanuel Quickley to the Raptors for OG Anunoby this week.
And according to one NBA executive, the Knicks may not be done making moves.
“The Knicks are in a good place to use Julius Randle and picks to make another big move, so that justifies them giving up two of their scoring options,” the exec told HoopsHype’s Michael Scotto. “Anunoby’s health is also a factor that’ll help determine how this trade ages.”
Randle has long been a polarising player. He often puts together impressive stat lines, but his basketball IQ, efficiency and ability to perform in the playoffs have all been questioned for some time now.
The Knicks’ decision-makers are yet to confirm their stance on Randle known, but one thing we know for sure is their front office is not content with standing pat.
They could not have made that more clear when they traded Barrett this week, who they drafted second overall in the draft just three and a half years ago.
