NBA Draft Trade Rumors: Kristaps Porzingis being moved by Knicks, Phil Jackson?


Markkanen isn't considered the same type of prospect as Porzingis, who was the the fourth pick in the 2015 draft.

The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that team president Phil Jackson is taking calls on Kristaps Porzingis.

Jackson met with Janis during the offseason, but no one from the Knicks organization has spoken to or heard from the 7-footer since the end of the season, according to ESPN's Ian Begley.

The Knicks are reportedly open to trading star forward Kristaps Porzingis, and the Celtics are one of the few teams in the league with the assets to acquire him.

NEW YORK Hes been overshadowed by Barbie for decades, but now Ken is finally getting some attention. Her beau will now come in slim and "broad" body types, as well as his normally chiseled physique.


Trading him now would surely generate an even worse reaction from the Knicks fan base than when they drafted him two years ago.

Porzingis' brother, Janis Porzingis - who also works for Andy Miller, Porzingis' primary agent - reiterated on Tuesday that Porzingis loves NY and wants to win here. The decision was seen as a sign of frustration given the team's mixed fortunes.

"Despite how the Knicks are treating their players, Kris wants to stay in NY".

NY is determined to acquire a frontline guard, something that a trade for Porzingis could gain for them. "If he's going to be traded, he's going to play out his contact and decide his future on his own".

The status of the team and Carmelo Anthony is also unclear given Jackson's public comments in the past, but Anthony has a full no-trade clause.

If a deal does happen it will likely happen prior to Thursday night, as the Knicks would nearly certainly want to use picks obtained in a trade during the NBA Draft.

But again, Porzingis is just 21-years-old and loaded with potential.
