How Kristaps Porzingis Will Approach Rest Of Season, Free Agency

Blake Griffin Miami Heat

At the time of their trade of Porzingis, the Knicks had several offers for the 23-year-old big man, league sources told ESPN.

The Knicks will get Dallas's next available first-round pick. Smith, a 2017 first-round pick with loads of offensive talent, gives their backcourt a potential piece to build around, while Matthews and Jordan have expiring contracts that'll provide loads of cap space in the summer.

Smith was known to be unhappy with his role in Dallas, playing second fiddle to rookie phenom Luka Doncic. The Knicks and Mavericks have now finalized the trade.

Porzingis, 23, is now sitting out the 2018-19 season after tearing his ACL a year ago.

NY (10-40) has the worst record in the National Basketball Association and is headed toward landing a high pick in the draft.

Alibaba revenue growth slowest pace in 3 years, but beat on EPS
Analysts expected the online retailer to report adjusted earnings of $1.67 per share, based on figures compiled by Refinitiv. E-commerce giant Alibaba reported quarterly profit far above market expectations, sending its shares up 6 percent.

Porzingis voiced his frustration with the team's losing ways and expressed his concern that a culture is developing that will make sustained organizational success unlikely, ESPN reported. They still have their own draft pick and now own the worst record in the National Basketball Association at 10-40. In the meantime, they have young pieces such as Smith and 2018 first-round pick Kevin Knox. Let Adrian Wojnarowski fill you in on the details in the Tweet below. That amount would be enough to sign two players to max contracts.

Porzingis hasn't played a game this season, but he was reportedly due for another evaluation in mid-February.

Porzingis, who will be a restricted free agent this summer, is now sidelined following ACL surgery and could be out for the remainder of the season. That's a lot of money to commit to someone with Porzingis' injury, potentially without seeing him play beforehand.

Porzingis, who is set to become a restricted free agent this summer, is planning to inform the Mavericks he intends to sign a qualifying offer, The Athletic's Shams Charania reported.

With those mitigating circumstances, Steve Mills and Scott Perry were never going to get 100 cents on the dollar for Porzingis.
