Treat Him Right: Kristaps Porzingis' Brother Puts Knicks On Notice

Treat Him Right: Kristaps Porzingis' Brother Puts Knicks On Notice”

In the interview that was translated on Eurobasket.net, Janis also indicated that Kristaps isn't in a hurry to negotiate a new contract with the Knicks.

The Knicks have gone 3-4 in that span and have benefitted from the 22 year old's ability to put the ball in the basket.

"From their point of view, Kristaps is the focal point at the moment, so you can not upset him much, or otherwise, at the end of the season, he will say, 'It's not so cool here.' The second question is: Who is the NY audience coming to watch now?"

Kristaps Porzingis, 22, is in his third National Basketball Association season.

Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis looks on during a game against the Rockets at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2017. To a large extent, it's Kristaps. "If he wanted to become an unrestricted free agent, Porzingis would have to play his fifth season with the Knicks on a qualifying offer, which would be for $7.5 million - significantly less annual money than he could earn via an extension".

Janis also said that Carmelo Anthony, who is now with the Oklahoma City Thunder, was unprofessional with the way he handled all the drama last season and that they wouldn't be in this situation if Melo had made a decision to fight for something.

Kristaps Porzingis scored 37 points and the New York Knicks beat the Phoenix Suns 120-107 on Friday night, giving Jeff Hornacek his first victory over his former team.

James, who is in his 15th season, joins Kobe Bryant as the only players to score 50 points in a game in their 15th season or later over the past 50 seasons, according to ESPN Stats & Information; Bryant scored 60 in his final career game in his 20th season. "And even that is conditional since we know that (Joel) Embiid was recently awarded a maximum contract for 30 games".

When Porzingis blew off the exit interview, sources at the time said it was over frustration about the direction of the franchise. In an interview with a Latvian outlet, Janis Porzingis said Kristaps won't be in a rush to sign an extension for the highest possible dollar amount. "It wasn't a spontaneous action". Phil Jackson was sacked, Anthony was traded and now Porzingis will clearly be watching the progress.

Kristaps didn't necessarily dispute anything his brother said in the magazine, but he hinted that some of it was lost in translation, including what was said about his future. "And I'm thinking, wait a minute. It should have been a task for the team's leaders, but Melo and people around him never tried to change anything".

Mills and GM Scott Perry would not comment on Janis Porzingis' comments at practice Thursday.

Porzingis has said that he entered this season with a fresh approach, leaving those issues in the past.

"Me and Carmelo, we have a great relationship no matter", he said.

76ers 121, Pacers 110: J.J. Redick scored 31 points and hit three decisive 3-pointers late, Ben Simmons had a triple-double and Philadelphia moved above.500 for the first time in almost four years.
