Mark Cuban discusses Porzingis trade

Mark Cuban discusses Porzingis trade

"Peace", Porzingis wrote on his Instagram account. The meeting lasted less than five minutes, league sources told ESPN.

The two sides have engaged in their fair share of mudslinging since the divorce, but Porzingis is (finally) attempting to take the high road and move on.

Knicks GM Scott Perry said the Knicks were aware of Porzingis' displeasure with the direction of the franchise in recent weeks.

"It's an exciting time".

When Porzingis was asked by a reporter Monday if he envisioned signing a long-term deal with Dallas, Cuban responded, "I can answer that for you". "That would be a disservice for our organization and disservice to our fans". The Mavs' medical staff and team management will consult with Porzingis' camp to come up with a schedule to ramp up his basketball activity to include live practice action in the coming weeks, but barring a change of plans, he will not make his Dallas debut until the 2019-20 season opener.

NY began to speak to teams about different trade scenarios involving Porzingis in the days leading up to Thursday.

Now we're hearing some significant news about Porzingis' status that may have to do with his departure. "So we made a decision to act upon one". NY added point guard Dennis Smith Jr., the ninth overall pick in the 2017 draft, along with guard Wesley Matthews and center DeAndre Jordan. "We just know each other from playing against each other for a long time", Porzingis said. NY also received two first-round picks in the deal.

One of the challenges for NY this summer will be finding good role players to put around two stars because they won't have a lot of money left over if they hand out two max contracts.

The Knicks were convinced no team beyond the Mavericks was willing to offer cap space, a young player with upside and future first round picks. So while the Knicks could have fielded more offers for Porzingis - possibly increasing their return in the process - the transaction with Dallas seemingly accomplished their objectives. Dallas also got Courtney Lee, Tim Hardaway Jr and Trey Burke in the deal.

Some close to Durant see NY as a possible landing spot for the back-to-back NBA Finals MVP if he chooses to leave the Golden State Warriors, according to league sources.

Porzingis, 23, said he had a "great relationship" with the 19-year-old Slovenian, having played against him in Europe.

While the Mavs will need to wait to see Porzingis suit up alongside Rookie of the Year front-runner Luka Doncic, Porzingis believes he's already building chemistry with the Slovenian.

Porzingis said he's well ahead of schedule rehabbing the torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, but he will not play this season. So the Knicks trading away Porzingis, an all-star who averaged 18.1 and 22.7 points a game over the last two seasons, seemed ridiculous.
