Agents Rumors

Knicks head coach David Fizdale took the first step toward building — and in many ways repairing — a relationship with Kristaps Porzingis by meeting with the All-Star forward’s agent Janis Porzingis, the Daily News has learned. According to a Knicks source, Fizdale and Janis, Kristaps’ older brother, met in Manhattan on Friday after Fizdale returned from the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago.
Kristaps did not attend the meeting and instead remains in Madrid, Spain continuing his rehabilitation from left knee surgery. Fizdale is still hoping to meet face-to-face with Kristaps in Latvia at some point this summer. Phil Jackson, Jeff Hornacek, Steve Mills and Scott Perry never traveled to the home country of the team’s top player.
