More Rumors in this Storyline
Derek Bodner: One piece of feedback I’m consistently getting from executives around the league is it was not common knowledge prior to today that Porzingis was on the block. Multiple teams who had inquired about his availability in previous weeks were told he was untouchable, I’m told.
“As is standard for this time of year, we were exploring various options on potential trades,” said Scott Perry, General Manager, New York Knicks. “Considering the uncertainty regarding Kristaps’ free agent status and his request today to be traded, we made a trade that we are confident improves the franchise. We thank Kristaps, Tim, Courtney and Trey for their contributions and wish them all the best.”
Michael Scotto: The two first-round picks the New York Knicks will receive from the Dallas Mavericks in the Kristaps Porzingis trade will be in 2021 and 2023, The Athletic has learned. Both picks are protected.
Shams Charania: Sources: Dallas’ draft compensation to New York in Kristaps Porzingis deal: Two future first-round picks.
Tim MacMahon: Mavs agreed to a trade with plan to sign Kristaps Porzingis to a long-term deal this summer and are confident they can with Luka Doncic and Dirk Nowitzki selling him. “He loves Luka and Dirk,” a source said.
James Edwards III: Rick Carlisle said everyone that was involved in the deal was on the plane last night from New York. Added that the team didn’t get situated in Detroit until 3 a.m.
Tim Cato: Salah Mejri and Ryan Broekhoff are both on the floor warming up for the Mavericks tonight, which indicates Dallas won’t be waiving either to complete this trade. 15th man Ray Spalding is the obvious candidate.
Shams Charania: Porzingis is incredibly fond of Dirk Nowitzki and Luka Doncic — and the Mavericks have confidence they will be able to keep Porzingis, league sources said. Knicks/Mavericks talks started picking up steam Wednesday night.
Ian Begley: The discussions between Dallas and the Knicks on the Kristaps Porzingis trade began a few days ago, per sources. The Knicks, clearly, were aware of the uncertainty surrounding Porzingis.

Adrian Wojnarowski: Kristaps Porzingis, who can become a restricted free agent this summer, has yet to make a decision on his future with Dallas, league sources tell ESPN. He expects to start the process of getting to know the organization soon. Porzingis will continue to rehab his ACL injury.
The Knicks get a point guard of the future in Smith, who had a triple-double at the Garden on Wednesday night, and should now have enough cap space for two maximum free agents — with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving squarely on their radar. A source said general manager Scott Perry and Mavs chief Donnie Nelson were behind closed doors at the Garden discussing scenarios when the Mavericks faced the Knicks on Wednesday night.
Hardaway and Lee have contracts that don’t expire until 2020. The Knicks shopped Lee since the summer and Hardaway since the recent downturn in his play. According to a source, Porzingis has harbored these feelings for a couple of years, leading to his missed exit meeting after the 2016-17 season, but the Knicks’ allowing reports about Porzingis possibly being available in a trade didn’t sit well with the Porzingis camp.
Adrian Wojnarowski: The Knicks and Mavericks have scheduled a trade call with the league office to finalize Porzingis deal, sources tell @ramonashelburne.
Enes Kanter: 🙄🤷♂️
Alex Kennedy: I texted a few NBA players about this Kristaps Porzingis trade. Most hadn’t heard the news yet and thought it was fake. A lot of rival players are stunned right now.
