Knicks reportedly agree to trade Kristaps Porzingis to Mavs

Knicks reportedly agree to trade Kristaps Porzingis to Mavs

The Mavs would also take on the contracts of Tim Hardaway Jr. and Courtney Lee to complete the trade.

By trading both contracts, the Knicks would put themselves in position to offer two max contracts.

The 23-year-old big man will probably not see the floor for the Mavericks this season due to his continued recovery from a torn ACL suffered last season, team owner Mark Cuban reportedly told ESPN on Friday. It was at that time Porzingis expressed he was not in agreement with what the Knicks have in mind for the future.

The Knicks have considered Porzingis a part of their future with the hope that their young talent, like Kevin Knox and Mitchell Robinson, as well as a future lottery pick and a potential free-agent signing this summer, they could achieve success in the future.

A source said: " Meghan and Harry like to meet the public as much as possible and make contact with the crowds that come to see them".

The Knicks, who have been widely known to be targeting Durant for so long now and whose general manager (Scott Perry) was part of the Seattle SuperSonics front office team that drafted him out of Texas in 2007, must be very confident that they're going to get the Golden State star. While the team is not in the business of winning games as of late, the ultimate goal this franchise seemed to be geared towards up to this point was building a championship caliber team in the next few seasons with Porzingis at that core.

When he does, it won't be with the Knicks.

The Mavericks took Smith Jr. with the No. 9 overall pick of the 2017 NBA Draft.

Kristaps Porzingis probably has a lot more to say about his sudden National Basketball Association career change.
