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.
Kanter is earning $18.6 million in the final year of his contract, while Randolph, who has not played in any games this season, is making $11.7 million.
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. Wojnarowski also mentioned that more players could be part of the deal, as well as a third-party team who could help make the salary caps work.
The Kings now are 10th in the Western Conference standings, and adding Kanter might bolster their prospects of qualifying for the playoffs.
For Kanter, it provides a much-needed change of scenery as his playing time continues to be sporadic under first-year head coach David Fizdale.
But teams have reportedly inquired about Kanter, and the Knicks have listened.
With the trade deadline nearby, expect a lot more trade discussions.
Kanter, 26, is averaging 14.4 points and 11 rebounds per contest in 41 games with the Knicks this season. It was one of the best stretches of his career as he averaged 18 points and 10.6 rebounds per game.
