Knicks sign Lee, trade him to Warriors for 3 players

By News Services


Shortly after LeBron James said yes to the Miami Heat yesterday, power forward David Lee and the New York Knicks said yes to the Golden State Warriors.

According to multiple team sources, Lee, a free agent, agreed to a six-year deal worth just under $80 million, and the Knicks agreed to a sign-and-trade with the Warriors. In exchange for Lee, a 6-foot-9 power forward who averaged 20.2 points and 11.7 rebounds last season, Golden State sent forward Anthony Randolph, center Ronny Turiaf and swingman Kelenna Azubuike to New York.

"It's bittersweet and shocking," point guard Stephen Curry said from Las Vegas, where the Warriors open its Summer League schedule. "Lee is a great player, and I do think he will make our team better. But we'll just have to see if it all works out. The fans love (Randolph). They thought he was going to lead this team places."


Heat trade Beasley for picks

Moments after LeBron James told the world he was headed to Miami, the Heat set to work to make way for the King.

A person with knowledge of the deal told the Associated Press late last night that the Heat have agreed to send forward Michael Beasley to the Timberwolves for Minnesota's 2011 second-round pick and a swap of future first-round picks.

Beasley was the No. 2 overall draft choice in 2008 but hasn't lived up to the billing yet. He averaged 14.8 points and 6.2 rebounds last season for the Heat.
