This Knicks-Raptors Trade Swaps Julius Randle, Pascal Siakam

In the NBA, as in life, one of the hardest things is knowing when to say goodbye. No team likes trading their best player. It’s an admission of defeat. It’s a way of saying “we know we’re not good enough, so we have to go back to the drawing board”. At the same time, sometimes acknowledging that can be the smartest move an organization can make.

The Case For Julius Randle as a Secondary Option

Julius Randle’s struggles this season were well-documented. Could a shifting of offensive responsibilities help him regain some dominance?. This season of New York Knicks basketball revealed quite a lot about roles on the squad and who could, or more importantly, could not step up as the true playmaker within a starting lineup that lacked a point guard. If there was one thing we learned for sure, it’s that the Knicks would be better served if their lone All-Star entering the season, Julius Randle, spent more time working on his ability to be a catch-and-shoot player, and less time seeking to handle the rock to begin, and often end, possessions.

At some point, this team’s fanbase has to be hoping they’ll step off of it.
