Knicks Questioned for Porzingis Move, Rival Teams 'Shocked' Young Forward Was Available

Knicks Questioned for Porzingis Move, Rival Teams 'Shocked' Young Forward Was Available”

It left the impression of desiring a trade, Wojnarowski added in his bombshell report.

Although the Porzingis trade may look bad and keep the Knicks bad, this trade could help the Knicks secure that pick. The Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Clippers, Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs were all listed as suitors, among others not named.

Most recently, in 2016, the Knicks signed Joakim Noah to a four-year, $72 million contract that they regretted.

Evercore's Joyce believes it's "too early to pass judgement on the trade", since the Knicks franchise valuation is more aligned with broader themes like growing global reach and the New York City market rather than personnel transactions.

Porzingis, the No. 4 overall pick in the 2015 National Basketball Association draft, has wanted to play for a victor with the Knicks, but he has been searching for clarity on his future role with the team and the franchise's direction. With high capped above average talent, and three young studs in Josh Richardson, Justise Winslow, and Bam Adebayo, you can expect Pat Riley to jump on this Woj bomb. Bryn Forbes is also a cheap, affordable player that's still 25-years-old.

There have already been a few trades that have gotten the ball rolling as the month of February begins, none bigger than the New York Knicks sending Kristaps Porzingis to the Dallas Mavericks in a seven-player blockbuster trade.

How far the 7-foot-3 Latvian who's injured would go for Davis remains to be seen, but it's arguably as intriguing of a starting point as any team can offer.

"You don't just make a trade two minutes after a guy walks out the door".
