MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minnesota Timberwolves president David Kahn says he has been trying to land Anthony Randolph for nearly a year. He finally got him thanks to what he calls a favor he did for the Knicks and Nuggets in the blockbuster Carmelo Anthony trade.

Kahn was willing to have the Timberwolves become the third team in the deal, and take on Eddy Curry’s expiring contract, to facilitate the trade that sent Anthony to New York on Tuesday. The Wolves received Randolph, a second-round pick and the necessary cash to buy Curry out of his contract. They sent swingman Corey Brewer to the Knicks and center Kosta Koufos to Denver.

Kahn says he called Knicks president Donnie Walsh on several occasions this season looking to acquire Randolph but was rebuffed each time, until Walsh needed some help to get the ‘Melo deal done.
