Knicks to Trade Zach Randolph for Tim Thomas, Cuttino Mobley?

The Knicks are also working on a separate deal to send Zach Randolph to the Los Angeles Clippers, possibly for Tim Thomas and Cuttino Mobley. It is believed that Walsh is ready to make that deal but is awaiting confirmation from the Clippers, who pursued Randolph last summer. One N.B.A. team executive, with knowledge of the situation, said the Randolph deal was “very likely to happen.”

The executive asked to remain anonymous because trade talks were still ongoing.

Trading Randolph would clear another $17.3 million from the books in 2010. Both Thomas and Mobley have contracts that expire in two years.
