Randle and the Knicks agreed to a three-year, $63 million contract Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
New York was reluctant to offer Kevin Durant a max deal due to his Achilles injury, but they did manage to land Randle, who put up 21.4 points along with 8.7 boards and 3.1 assists across 73 contests a season ago in New Orleans. He'll immediately step into the starting five, likely pushing either Mario Hezonja or Mitchell Robinson to a bench role. Jun 30 7:41 pm (EST)
