The New York Knicks have struggled this year, and they no longer look like the playoff team they were last season. They are currently 23-26 on the season and are the 11th seed in the Eastern Conference.

Knicks star Julius Randle has been having a tougher time this year as well, and he is definitely not playing like the All-NBA caliber player he was just a season ago. Amidst his struggles, there have even been some rumors that the Knicks could potentially move on from Julius Randle for the right trade package.

Despite the team's struggles, Julius Randle has recently stated his commitment to the New York Knicks. Randle claimed that he still wants to "be a part" of bringing the New York Knicks a championship. Fred Katz of The Athletic relayed Randle's words.

I wouldn’t change it. I still wanna be a part of it. I still wanna see this thing through. I still wanna be a part of helping trying to bring a championship to the Knicks.

So, I’m not gonna be happy and be all about it when things are good and just because it’s not necessarily going the way I want it to or the team wants it to run and hide. I’m still behind this. I’m still sticking it through."

It is clear that Julius Randle is having an extremely poor stretch of play. With that being said, he is still a good player that can contribute to a winning team. Perhaps Julius Randle isn't the same No. 1 option that he was last season, but it is clear that he wants to win with the New York Knicks.

The trade deadline is coming up, and it remains to be seen if the New York Knicks end up adding talent to the roster to make a push for the play-in tournament. The New York Knicks were linked with Indiana Pacers guard Caris LeVert earlier this month though, so perhaps they're indeed looking to improve their roster. It is clear that a move must be made for the Knicks to be more competitive, and hopefully, they acquire a player/players who can help them achieve that goal.
