A lot of news has happened in regard to Kristaps on Thursday. It began with what seemed to be a run of the mill meeting, then turned into the Knicks believing he wanted out. Now, several NBA teams are apparently going after his services.
Only time will tell what will actually happen, as there are a lot of moving parts at play. Oddly enough, this giant news coming out of the Big Apple is happening on the same day that news broke the Lakers and Pelicans are discussing an Anthony Davis trade. The NBA trade deadline is next week.
When the Knicks traded Carmelo Anthony, Kristaps Porzingis was supposed to be the next franchise star in New York. However, the front office has failed to surround him with talent and build a winning culture. Coming off an ACL tear, Porzingis appears to be skeptical that the Knicks can construct a roster which can help him win.
