Source: Lee-to-Warriors is NY's Plan B
In the event the New York Knicks do not land LeBron James in his made-for-TV announcement on ESPN, they have a sign-and-trade deal in place to send David Lee to the Golden State Warriors for Anthony Randolph, Ronny Turiaf and Kelenna Azubuike, a source close to the situation confirmed to ESPNNewYork.com.
Lee has been courted by a number of teams, the New Jersey Nets among them. But if James picks a destination other than Madison Square Garden on Thursday night, the Knicks are expecting to complete the deal with the Warriors.
Of course the exchange could unravel before James reveals his decision, but the Knicks were confident the Lee trade would be part of their Plan B. If their Plan A comes to fruition, and LeBon agrees to sign up, the Knicks will renounce Lee's rights.
The proposed Lee-Randolph exchange was first reported by The Contra Costa Times.
