Knicks 2020-2021 Season Preview: A Glimmer of Hope
Hoping the CP3 to Knicks rumors are simply rumors. I love CP3 and am so happy he proved so many haters wrong this season. He’s an all-time great. However, he does not fit the Knicks’ timetable and is not worth giving up young assets (no matter how you feel about those assets) pic.twitter.com/BySQktkdmJ— Swiss Cheese D (@NBASwissCheeseD) October 7, 2020

I’m getting multiple messages and DMs... “GET RID OF RANDLE”. I hear ya, and I agree. Here’s the good news, he only has $4 million guaranteed next season, meaning the Knicks can waive him after this season and owe more money to Joakim Noah (I know the Noah part isn’t good news)— Swiss Cheese D (@NBASwissCheeseD) November 20, 2020
I want to blame Randle for a lot of the problems last season, but he's clearly a good player.
If you saw his season on the Pelicans prior to the Knicks acquisition, you would know he is a legit player. Randle had the same volume on the Pelicans and Knicks. The difference is he shot 52% from the floor on the Pelicans versus shooting 46% for the Knicks. That drop in efficiency was an extension of how he was used on the floor for New York. If he plays well, he'll be traded for a pick come the trade deadline, just like Marcus Morris (also predicted on Swiss Cheese D)
