Porzingis missed the entire 2018-19 season recovering from his ACL tear. The 7-footer will make his Mavs debut next season and Curry believes Dallas will be a juggernaut on offense with Porzingis and Luka Doncic leading the charge.
“KP can do it all. He’s versatile and big. He’s 7-foot so he can shoot it over anybody,” Curry told ESPN Dallas. “He can play out on the perimeter, obviously. You have to be connected to him at all times, so that makes it easier for his teammates to make plays and get space. It should be a tough offense to guard, able to make plays and unselfish more than anything. Great passion is on the team. It’s about getting to know each other and KP getting his legs back going. Once he does that, we’ll be a tough team.”
The last time we saw Kristaps Porzingis play, he was averaging 22.7 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.4 blocks with the New York Knicks while shooting 43.9 percent from the field and 39.5 percent from beyond the arc. The new Mavs star has career averages of 17.8 points, 7.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists.
The Mavs gave Porzingis a five-year, $158.25 million deal this summer. For Dallas to make the postseason next year, it will need Porzingis and Luka Doncic to play at an All-Star level every night, especially since the Western Conference is so tough.
Seth Curry signed a four-year deal with the Mavs this summer. His perimeter shooting will be vital for Dallas to be a playoff team in 2019-20.
