New York Knicks not ruling out possibility of trading Kristaps Porzingis

New York Knicks not ruling out possibility of trading Kristaps Porzingis

The most likely reason is that Porzingis - like many other players - has grumbled about the triangle offense. However, that is not the case anymore.

Sources: As teams become aware Phil Jackson isn't ruling out possibility of trading Kristaps Porzingis, frenzy of interest is growing today.

If they do receive they like for Porzingis, Jackson views Arizona big man Lauri Markkanen as a possible replacement.

To that possibility, Jackson had a dinner meeting with Arizona forward Lauri Markkanen on Monday night in NY, league sources told The Vertical.

Despite their limited professional experience, many are entrusted with handling data containing national security secrets. If Winner is found guilty, she faces up to 10 years behind bars and up to a $250,000 fine.

The Daily News reported last month that coach Jeff Hornacek reached out to Porzingis, the fourth overall pick in the 2015 draft, via text message but received no response.

Jackson has also said recently Porzingis is not ready to be the team's leader, and the two have yet to define a role for Porzingis, who averaged 4.8 3-point attempts per game this season. So why would the Knicks even consider dealing someone as young and talented as Porzingis, especially with two cheap years left on his contract? The Knicks got out to a hot start but missed the playoffs after finishing the season 31-51, tailspinning around the Zen Master's insistence to run his famed Triangle Offense.

Why would Jackson be willing to trade a 21-year-old who has enormous potential?

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

"We woke them up to die", a man who tried to warn Grenfell Tower residents of the devastating fire has said. It comes the day victims, who have been left homeless, will receive £5,000 in their bank accounts.

Porzingis skipped the Knicks' closeout interviews because he was reportedly upset with the team's dysfunction.

The Knicks already have enough to worry about. Porzingis is regarded as the future of the franchise: the player to take the reins when Anthony leaves.

Unless Jackson can get a king's ransom in return for Porzingis, a trade wouldn't make any sense.
