The agent for David Lee says the All-Star forward is heading from the Knicks to the Golden State Warriors in a sign-and-trade deal.

Mark Bartelstein says Lee will get a six-year, $80-million contract. The Knicks will receive forwards Anthony Randolph, Kelenna Azubuike and Ronny Turiaf.

Lee has been the Knicks' most popular and productive player under coach Mike D'Antoni, but the team wouldn't commit to signing him, opting to preserve enough salary-cap room to afford two maximum-salary players.

The Knicks gave one of those contracts to Amar'e Stoudemire, who plays the same position as Lee.
