The teams are in talks over a potential trade that would involve the Knicks sending center Enes Kanter to Sacramento in exchange for power forward Zach Randolph, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Wednesday, citing National Basketball Association sources.
Wojnarowski added that nothing is imminent as of yet and that a third team might be needed to help facilitate the deal seeing as the Kings are looking to clean house of veteran, expiring contracts.
Despite Kanter making $18.6 million this year, the Kings have the flexibility to pull off this deal as they now have around $11 million in cap space. And the latest word on this is that the Knicks are reportedly exploring a potential deal involving Zach Randolph, someone who played for the ballclub in the past.
Seeing limited minutes but carrying an enormous paycheck, it may not be surprising if the New York Knicks suddenly deal off Enes Kanter to teams with sensible offers.

Both of these players have expiring contracts and will be free agents after this year. Once his contract expires at the end of the season, he is likely to get short-term deals at best.
Randolph, 37, is at the twilight of his National Basketball Association career. Kanter, however, stopped short of requesting a trade during a recent meeting with general manager Scott Perry.
So far this season Kanter is averaging 14.4 points and 10.7 rebounds per game and the center attracted worldwide attention last week after refusing to travel to London due to fears of being assassinated. Offloading Kanter allowed Fizdale to take a closer look at all corners of the roster, which include young big men Mitchell Robinson (recovering from injury) and Luke Kornet. Expect a few Knicks players to be traded.
