At Mavericks Introduction, Porzingis Holds Back On Knicks Divorce

Kevin Durant

When Porzingis, who can become a restricted free agent this summer, was asked about signing a contract with the Mavericks after the season, Cuban jumped in and answered for him.

"I feel great", he said Monday, almost one year removed from reconstructive surgery. It's also the time for those franchises with little to no hope at a playoff berth to part ways with talent as they unload salaries and focus on the future. "We're going to make the right decision". "Hopefully I'll be quickly back to my rhythm and feel the game again", said Porzingis.

The Knicks last week shockingly shipped Porzingis, who had been considered the cornerstone of the franchise, and guards Tim Hardaway Jr., Courtney Lee and Trey Burke to Dallas in exchange for point guard Dennis Smith Jr., two future first-round picks and the expiring contracts of center DeAndre Jordan and swingman Wesley Matthews. "I really see us being very special on the court and fun to watch". Nowitzki still ended up getting a ring and a spot in the inner circle of National Basketball Association greats, but Nash's departure left a massive what-if in the history of both players as well as the Mavericks. The 21-year-old was away from the team for two weeks as his name surfaced in trade rumors.

Although Nowitzki hasn't said he's retiring and maintains that he will wait until the offseason to decide, several stops at hallowed National Basketball Association arenas have felt like farewells. I was a fan of him. There was uncertainty about Porzingis' desire to play with the Pelicans long term, sources said. The Mavericks haven't won a playoff series since winning their only title.




"All four guys are going to be significant contributors, " Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said. "I think for the first time we met, maybe when we were both playing still in Spain, I remember he was a few years younger than me".

So that's how the Mavericks' world is turning these days.

And Porzingis figures to be ready to play.
