Mark Cuban discusses Porzingis trade

Kristaps Porzingis tells Knicks fans to ‘stay woke’

It doesn't seem like the New York Knicks did their full due diligence when it came to trading away franchise forward Kristaps Porzingis.

Porzingis was traded to the Mavs on Thursday, but per reports is not expected to suit up as he recovers from the ACL injury he suffered more than a year ago.

Guards Tim Hardaway Jr. and Trey Burke, who were also acquired in the Porzingis trade, took part in Monday's practice as well. Nothing more. That may have provided disappointment, if Porzingis stayed, for those expecting his return before the 2018-19 season ended, but the Knicks weren't in contention, so it didn't make sense to return him. As the Knicks seemingly smeared him on his way out, Porzingis mostly kept his mouth shut, instead taking the high road on social media. They have a lot of money to spend, likely will land a top 5 draft pick and every agent wants their star client to play in a big city like NY.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban envisions a long, bountiful future for the franchise with Kristaps Porzingis and rookie Luka Doncic sharing the court.

Obviously, there were some underlying issues between the Knicks and Porzingis that worked to sour his relationship with the team.

Coach Rick Carlisle's focus is on trying to get the Mavericks back to the playoffs, even though the trade could be viewed as a surrender on the current season, particularly with the decision to sit Porzingis with Dallas four games out of the final postseason spot in the Western Conference.

"It's not a concern I have", Cuban said to ESPN.

But multiple teams interested in making an offer for Porzingis said that they were unable to do so before NY traded Porzingis to Dallas, league sources said. The Mavs sent DeAndre Jordan, Dennis Smith Jr. and Wesley Matthews and two future first round draft picks to the Knicks.

Porzingis has averaged 17.8 points and 7.1 rebounds over 186 career appearances.
