The Knicks looked to move Brandon Jennings at the trade deadline at his request, per a source. His release will allow him to sign with a playoff contender and also removes his cap hold this summer, freeing up more than $5 million in cap space. Jennings, one of Phil Jackson's big signings over the summer, wanted to play for a contender, according to The Undefeated's Marc Spears.

Guard Chasson Randle is expected to sign with the Knicks later today, replacing Brandon Jennings on the roster, according to a source. Randle will sign for the rest of the season and is expected to have a partial guarantee for next season. Randle played well for the Knicks in the preseason but the team waived him after he suffered a broken orbital bone shortly before the regular season. His agreement was first reported by The Vertical.

The Westchester Knicks hold Chasson Randle's returning rights in the D League but Randle doesn't plan on going back to Westchester, per a source. Randle, a Knicks preseason standout, was released by the Sixers recently. The former Stanford guard played well for the Knicks in preseason but the club opted against keeping him on the regular season roster after he suffered an orbital fracture late in preseason. Randle will likely draw interest from other NBA teams or clubs overseas.
