In trying to find a new home for Enes Kanter, among the scenarios recently discussed — though only in a preliminary stage — was the Knicks bringing back Chicago’s Jabari Parker, a source told the Daily News.

However, a snag in the framework was trying to find a third team to take Kanter, the source said, and it’s unclear if talks ever got off the ground. The Kings could still be an option for that third team and, according to sources, have been separately negotiating a straight swap for Kanter. One scenario is Kanter for Zach Randolph and Kosta Koufos.

As the Daily News reported, the Knicks would need a “sweetener” to make such a trade work with the Kings, such as a second-round pick.

In a commitment carrying leaguewide ramifications, Washington Wizards All-Star guard Bradley Beal has agreed to extend his deal for two years on a $72 million maximum contract, agent Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports told ESPN on Thursday morning.

Beal’s extension, which will begin with the 2021-22 season, includes a player option for 2022-23 that keeps him out of free agency for three more seasons and guarantees him nearly $130 million over four years.

Assuming that Beal, 26, declines his player option upon reaching 10 years of service in 2022 to re-sign with Washington, he would be eligible to sign the largest contract in NBA history: five years for $266 million.

To leave Washington in three years, Beal could sign a four-year, $198 million deal with a new team.
