Janis Porzingis, KP's brother, had given NY a list of four teams that he would like to be traded to and the Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Clippers were on the list, but the Mavs weren't. His rehabilitation, he says, is moving swiftly, but Cuban made it clear Porzingis won't see the court in a game this spring.

In the end, the Knicks were able to not only shop Porzingis, but get rid of two expiring contracts in Tim Hardaway Jr. and Courtney Lee.

Smith had a much more productive night than his other ex-Maverick counterparts that were sent to NY in the megadeal that included Kristaps Porzingis.

You could nearly see it in Rick Carlisle's eyes.

With that being the Knicks' obvious play in this deal, rival executives told Stein they liked the trade as they believe "the Knicks must have some promising inside information about their ability to lure the likes of [Kevin] Durant and [Kyrie] Irving".

Clearly, the future is all about Porzingis pairing with Doncic, the 6-7 Slovenian guard who swept the first three rookie of the month awards and is leading the Mavericks in scoring.

Porzingis probably won't get to play with the European star he grew up watching: Dirk Nowitzki.

Kristaps Porzingis has hinted he envisions a long-term future with the Dallas Mavericks after being unveiled by his new franchise.

"I feel great, feel great, but as I said, we're taking our time", Porzingis said. "I'm still trying to be patient and doing all of the little things right but I'm excited because I feel great".

"This is one of the most exciting times, I think, that I've ever been a part of, having two young players of their caliber for our fans to watch and improve game by game", Nelson said.

Porzingis said on Monday that "there might be a time when I go into more detail" about the depths of his discontent as a Knick and the reasons that led him to push for his departure. ". So far, so good".

The Knicks made the seven-player deal last week on the same day they said Porzingis asked to be traded. "That's what you look for in an organization".
