Knicks' Julius Randle changing representation from CAA to WME

New York Knicks forward Julius Randle is making a significant shift in his representation as he prepares for the 2022-23 season.

The 28-year-old, who has been with CAA since his Lakers days in 2014, recently announced his move to WME. This transition will see him reconnecting with his former CAA agent, Andrew Thomas, who made the switch to WME in February 2022.

Over the past few years, Randle has been a cornerstone player for the Knicks, averaging an impressive 22.3 points, 10.0 rebounds, and 4.6 assists per game since departing from the Los Angeles Lakers in 2019. His stellar performances have earned him two All-Star selections and two All-NBA team nods, solidifying his status as a crucial asset for New York. However, Randle’s change in representation may trigger trade speculations, considering CAA’s strong ties to the Knicks.

Notably, Leon Rose, the President of the Knicks, was formerly associated with CAA as an agent before assuming his current position with the team. Additionally, his son, Sam Rose, is affiliated with CAA and represents Knicks point guard Jalen Rose. Furthermore, Donovan Mitchell, another CAA client, was previously linked to the Knicks as a preferred trade destination before ultimately joining the Cleveland Cavaliers for the 2022-23 season.

WME represents several notable figures within the Knicks organization, including Knicks forward RJ Barrett and superstar center Joel Embiid, who has been rumored to be considering a departure from the Philadelphia 76ers. Notably, the Knicks are considered the frontrunners among likely trade destinations for the reigning MVP, Joel Embiid. This transition in Randle’s representation could potentially have far-reaching implications in the ever-evolving landscape of NBA trades and player affiliations.
