Porzingis boycotted over frustration with the Knicks' lack of direction, sources told The Post's Marc Berman at the time. Multiple reports have indicated that the New York Knicks could be interested in trading Kristaps Porzingis which has brought up many trade rumors involving the Celtics.
Porzingis has played for the Knicks for two years and has been one of the few bright spots for the team. So hearing Chris Carlin and Ike Reese on 94 WIP discussing what it might take to get Kristaps Porzingis in a trade with the Knicks should come as no surprise. Jackson had dinner with Markkanen on Monday night in NY and is considering drafting him with the Knicks' No. 8 overall pick on Thursday, The Vertical reports. Porzingis hit 36 percent of the three-pointers last season.
Like, could you imagine the 7-foot-3 forward who can score in a variety of ways while also playing defense landing in Phoenix?
Is Kristaps Porzingis on the way out of NY?
"Despite how the Knicks are treating their players, Kris wants to stay in New York", Janis Porzingis said.
However, it is a good barometer of what is important to sports fans in the city.
Jackson reportedly likes former Arizona star Lauri Markkanen, if he decides to trade away what many thought would be the future of the New York Knicks. According to Ian Begley of ESPN, the Knicks have expressed interest in Josh Jackson; who should be available at the Celtics' pick. The fourth pick in the 2015 draft, the Latvian big man became the first player in National Basketball Association history to record over 1000 points, 500 rebounds, 75 three-pointers and 100 blocks as a rookie.
