As Wojnarowski reports, the Kings are hoping to send out more expirings in the swap.
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. Kanter is on an expiring $18.6 million contract, while Randolph's is worth $11.6 million, northjersey.com noted.
Enes Kanter and the New York Knicks are not on the same page. The Kings are poised to have four players hit unrestricted free agency following this season as Iman Shumpert, Kosta Koufos, and Ben McLemore are set to join Randolph on the market. Hence why a third team might be needed.
Both big men are on expiring contracts. Further, returning to the Knicks would make sense since the head coach, David Fizdale, is pretty much familiar with how to use Z-Bo, unless New York has other plans such as a waive or buyout, the NY Daily News reported.

It even acknowledged that the common meaning of the words in the statute would encompass her professional relationship with Mr. The judge said he was not determining whether Judd was sexually harassed by Weinstein "in the colloquial sense of the term".
Despite limited action, Kanter said that he is happy in NY. It would give Kanter an opportunity to play for a team making a playoff push.
Kanter, 26, is averaging 14.4 points and 11 rebounds per contest in 41 games with the Knicks this season. But when one looks at the ploys that the Knicks are using, it seems that focus is more on the younger players and planning ahead.
The NBA trade deadline is February 7.
Randolph, 37, averaged 14.5 points and 6.7 rebounds over 59 games last season.
