On Latvian television, Fizdale hinted Porzingis has been kept abreast of their moves before they became public. Porzingis played against free-agent signee Mario Hezonja in the Spanish League. “We’ve had some really good conversations,” Fizdale said. “We talked about the kids we drafted [Kevin Knox and Mitchell Robinson]. I’ve tried to make sure that he’s — we’ve been in communication on every decision that we’ve made.”
Hezonja credits his former Magic coach, Frank Vogel, for lifting his minutes and moving him from small to power forward last season. He has bulked up to 230 pounds from 190 as a rookie, making him now a better candidate as a smallball 4. “Versatility,’’ Hezonja said on his best quality. “I have [my] major, best minutes at the point forward or what the new NBA calls it. I really like Frank Vogel’s decision to put me there. In my first two seasons I covered five positions on the court.”
Mike Vorkunov: Mario Hezonja says he chose the Knicks over interest from the Lakers, Thunder, and the Blazers. He liked the vibe from NYK — Skyped pre-draft with Steve Mills, knew Fizdale from that process, Perry drafted him. Mills says he tried trading w/ Perry for him when he was in Orlando.
