According to Adrian Wojnarowski, NBA Insider for ESPN, the Sacramento Kings are in talks with the New York Knicks about a potential deal that would involve Enes Kanter and Zach Randolph.

The report added the Kings would hope to send out more expiring contracts in the trade.

Kanter, 26, has grown upset with his diminished playing time in recent weeks, as the Knicks have turned their attention to developing their younger players.

The New York Knicks have chose to emphasize developing their younger players in what has quickly become a lost season, and that could mean parting ways with veteran center Enes Kanter. 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. It would give Kanter an opportunity to play for a team making a playoff push.

Trading Kanter for Randolph doesn't seem like a good trade because Kanter is much better than Randolph. It's unclear what else the Knicks might be looking for in the trade.

There's familiarity on both sides for this trade.

Kanter's contract is set to expire in the summer, and the Knicks are preparing to make a move for a number of notable free-agents such as Kevin Durant. The Turkish center quickly established himself as an important player in Utah, however, the team eventually traded him to the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2015. The list of interested teams could swell in the coming days as the February trade deadline nears.
