NBA teams are monitoring Julius Randle's situation with the New York Knicks, Shams Charania reported on FanDuel TV's "Run It Back."

Randle suffered a shoulder injury in January and missed the Knicks' run to the Eastern Conference semifinals. New York went 21-15 without the three-time All-Star. Prior to the injury, Randle averaged 24 points, 9.2 rebounds, and five assists per game.

The 29-year-old holds a player option worth $32.4 million for the 2025-26 season and is eligible for a four-year, $181.5-million extension, according to Charania.

Randle's salary makes him a prime candidate to be included in a potential trade package for a star to bolster the Knicks' roster.

The Knicks are still looking to trade for a big name this summer, sources told The Athletic's Fred Katz.

The Pacers eliminated the Knicks in Sunday's Game 7. Over the course of the playoffs, several New York players were injured, including OG Anunoby, Mitchell Robinson, Bojan Bogdanovic, Josh Hart, and Jalen Brunson.

Brunson is also eligible for an extension, as he holds a player option worth $24.9 million in 2025. Anunoby will likely become a free agent this summer, as he has a $19.9-million player option for next season.
