    He backed off of this within hours of it making it into the atmosphere. They're going to do exactly like we were hoping to do...you know have his bird's rights and wait to sign in the summer for cap space reasons. He was mad emotional cuhz he was traded and felt embarrassed he was dealt so quickly. He'll agree to sign with them on or before July 1st

    That makes a lot more sense.

    He clearly post to Doncic about having fun, he can't do it this yr because he's going to sit out. So he's going to leave to L.A. or Boston and have fun with Doncic from afar?
    Dallas ainít LA, and he was influenced by a banana boat crewman Melo. You would think he would jump at 150 mil... be a free agent again at 28...

    If he hadn't made that IG post and was signed to Klutch Sports I could follow you here Maf, otherwise this is just conspiracy talk. He'll be a Mav in a few months, matter of fact we'll find out before the draft this is a done deal.

    One thing is for sure he ain't making his way back here...lol at the summary of his career as a Knick. Especially 3rd and 5th line. Something personal took place not sure what it was

    Games played line is hilarious. Not to mention how ineffectual he was in about half of those actual games played.

    Yeah, credit Perry for not being held hostage here. Glad KP was shocked bc he called our bluff and thought he was irreplaceable.

    The Knicks could have traded Porzingis before the 2017 draft to Phoenix for Devin Booker and been in position to draft Lauri Markkanen, according to sources.

    Time will tell if this trade turns out better than the deal that was shelved in 2017 (and ended up getting Jax fired).

    Wait, the version of this story that I always read was that PJ asked for Booker and the #4 pick for KP before the 2017 draft and the Suns laughed at him.

    The Post article suggests otherwise...

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/nypost.com/2019/02/03/now-porzingis-can-fire-back-after-knicks-president-shrugs-off-blame/amp/

    I do recall there were conflicting reports, with some saying Booker straight up was the deal and others saying a 1st... I believe PJax wanted both, and likely had the offer... went to Dolan and that got him fired. Who knows tho.

    Maybe we wouldíve swapped picks? Took LM over Frank?

    Typical Knicks tho. Of all the crappy moves Phil made, his best and probably only good decision was the one that was vetoed and cost him his job.

    Most likely the Knicks not showing him the love giving him that extension while he was injured. Knicks made the right move not only because of questions about his health but opening up cap space by not giving it to him but he felt slighted. Seemed to really like NYC but he saw the reality that the Knicks sucked and weren't winning anything by improving organically through the draft as Mills always says and that would take years.

    I wonder what happens if PHO wins lottery. Ja a better fit for them than Zion.. If we get second or third and they get 1st, could Frank and a future first be enough to swap?
    Itís a good idea.

    Only issue is that the new regime has consistently stated that they donít want to trade picks.

    I guess if the Knicks drop to even 4 we are okay as we will most likely not resign Matthews and have a gaping hole at SG for a guy like RJ Barret if we canít get Zion.

    Very difficult to do when one of those organic pieces misses over 100gms in 3 seasons. Again he comes off much like the major figure head player we got rid of before him...IT'S NEVER THEIR FAULT ALWAYS SOMEONE ELSE

    Perry just got here too, sorry it didn't align with his rookie scale contract. He'll be introduced by Mavs today let's see how lippy he gets I'm sure he has much more to say

    Pretty tame introductory presser in Dallas. The big questions will he play this season and will he sign a long term deal with the Mavs. Looks like his team never had plans to play this season even after the Feb evaluation, maybe caused some friction with the Knicks if the medical staff deemed him healthy enough to play and he wanted to sit out until next season denying the Knicks a look at him before signing him to a long term deal. Also maybe part of the reason he was missing practices when he knew he didn't plan to play until next OCT.

    Cuban skirted the issue when he jumped in when reporters asked KP if he was going to sign a long term deal. Cuban of course said yes the Mavs were going to sign him to a long term deal and KP jokingly said "There you Go". Didn't really answer the question but it would be ballsy for the kid to sign a QO offer for a few million and forgo a 150M deal so he could become a UFA in 2020.

    This article is kind of nuts, I guess this is part of the truth #kporzee was talking about but players can't throw hissy fits because an organization is trying to do their job

    Would be funny if KP is so pissed that his brother negotiated him out of NYC that he returns and signs with Nets. Iím rooting for that to happen.
