The Knicks are preparing initial trade offers to bring Chris Paul to New York, reports to Jonathan Macri of Knicks Film School.
Potential trades discussed within the Knicks organization have involved Julius Randle and Kevin Knox, per Macri.
Paul, 35, has two years and $85.6 million left on his contract, which was negotiated by Paul’s former agent and current Knicks president Leon Rose. Paul had a resurgent season in OKC, leading a young Thunder team to the playoffs.
The Knicks believe Paul could have a positive effect on their core group of young players, while helping build a winning culture in New York, per SNY’s Ian Begley.
The Knicks, however, are reportedly not the only organization interested in Paul. Should CP3 decide that he wants to play for a championship contender next season, New York could be out of the running.
