But some people around the league feel he’s acting in a “James Harden type of way” that suggests he wants a new place of work next season. Randle has lost his strongest ally in assistant coach Kenny Payne, his former mentor at Kentucky who left this month to be the head coach at Louisville. Some NBA sources believe the Knicks will shop Randle for a package revolving around a center if they lose Mitchell Robinson.

Underrated #Knicks’ storyline to follow in these last 2 weeks: Will RJ Barrett pass Julius Randle as the team’s leading scorer? pic.twitter.com/W7bJ2UZsEv10:13 AM

Brian Geltzeiler @BGeltzNBA
Boy, is Julius Randle’s act getting old. So immersed in himself that he can’t enjoy a win with his teammates. He’s fallen from grace as quickly as he rose. It’s going to be interesting what bad contract the Knicks will have to take on just to dump Randle – 10:59 PM

Obi earned the opportunity to close out this game.
Randle had not earned the right check back into this game.
A tired Obi playing effort >>> an unmotivated but fresh Randle – 9:51 PM

KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Thibs long has had habit of rewarding reserves for sparking team but this this bench unit ran out of gas. Randle in with 3:32 left. – 9:48 PM

Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN
Julius Randle has been at the end of the bench the entire fourth quarter. I have a feeling they’re going to tell us his quad started acting up. But he was also benched after picking a technical. – 9:45 PM

KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Knicks up 9 midway through 4th with Randle and Fournier a combined 3-19 isn’t a sentence I thought I’d be typing today. – 9:41 PM

Fred Katz @FredKatz
That Julius Randle technical foul was his 12th of the season, a new career high. – 9:20 PM

Fred Katz @FredKatz
Randle with the technical foul now. He’s been increasingly animated with the refs over the course of this quarter. – 9:14 PM

Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
T on Randle. Officials have rabbit ears tonight. Third T. – 9:14 PM

Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN
Some faint “We Want Obi” chants at MSG as Julius Randle struggles. – 9:13 PM

Tommy Beer @TommyBeer
Randle ISO and gets stripped. Lazily swipes at Cunningham. Since he never crossed half court and is basket hanging, Randle gets an easy layup attempt. He misses the layup. Doesn’t hustle back and lazily jogs back up the floor, and the Pistons get an easy bucket in transition. pic.twitter.com/hPhr69rAdF4:39 PM

Fred Katz @FredKatz
Halftime. Knicks lead the Pistons 59-47.

Bagley has eight of the Pistons’ 12 points. Randle isn’t enjoying covering the skinny version of him. – 3:50 PM

Steve Popper @StevePopper
Randle is playing and starting – along with Fournier, Barrett, Burks and Robinson. – 3:08 PM

Marc Berman @NYPost_Berman
Julius Randle will start. – 3:08 PM

Fred Katz @FredKatz
Julius Randle is a game time decision, Tom Thibodeau said. Mitchell Robinson will “most likely” start. – 2:00 PM

Steve Popper @StevePopper
Randle will warm up and if he feels okay he will play. – 1:59 PM

More on this storyline

Stefan, do you think there’s a possibility Randle could be traded this summer? Bondy: Yeah, I think there’s a possibility, but I will caution that any talk of Randle getting traded at the deadline, I think there wasn’t much to it. There might have been some calls here and there, but nothing ever got serious at all. I think the Knicks are smart enough to understand why would they trade this guy at his lowest point when we wouldn’t get much back for him? -via HoopsHype / March 10, 2022

The New York Knicks are receiving calls for Julius Randle. Per SNY’s Ian Begley, the Sacramento Kings were one of the potential suitors but are likely out after acquiring Domantas Sabonis from the Indiana Pacers. -via Bleacher Report / February 10, 2022

The Kings were among the teams interested in Randle entering this week. Several teams had expressed a degree of interest in Randle ahead of the deadline. The Kings were under the impression that they could acquire Randle for the right return. -via SportsNet New York / February 9, 2022
