So, we’re coming up on the all-star break, it’s been a fun season so far, and I’m going about my business, check my twitter feed and then…
Reporting with @ZachLowe and @RamonaShelburne: In meeting with management today, Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis expressed his concern with the losing, franchise direction and an uncertainty that a culture is developing that will enable sustainable organizational success.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) January 31, 2019
And here I am thinking, ah, whatever, he’s a restricted free agent, he doesn’t have that much leverage here, but maybe they try to flip him, Knox, and a 1st for AD? But wait…
New York has agreed with Dallas on trade that includes Kristaps Porzingis, Courtney Lee, Tim Hardaway Jr., for Wesley Matthews, Dennis Smith Jr. and DeAndre Jordan, league sources tell ESPN. Players and agents are being notified of particulars. Deal may include more draft assets.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) January 31, 2019
Ummm…WTF?! Just giving up on Porzingis for…that?! Cap space? Boy, the Knicks really must believe they’re getting both KD and Kyrie to sign with them next season. And then on the flip side, Dallas is going to get a core of Porzingis and Luka? That’s pretty damn good, right? Wait, what was this that just came onto my timeline?
Sources: All-Star Kristaps Porzingis is planning to inform the Dallas Mavericks his intent is to sign the qualifying offer in restricted free agency this summer.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) January 31, 2019
