Kristaps Porzingis tells Knicks fans to 'stay woke'

According to Wojnarowski, the Knicks tried to offer Porzingis before ultimately trading him to the Dallas Mavericks for Dennis Smith Jr.

Dallas also acquired guards Tim Hardaway Jr., Trey Burke and Courtney Lee.

Porzingis said he's well ahead of schedule rehabbing the torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, but he will not play this season.

But when asked about the Knicks at his introductory news conference with the Dallas Mavericks on Monday, the All-Star power forward bit his tongue, although he hinted he might have more to say in the future.

Porzingis said there has been "a good vibe" throughout the Mavs organization since he arrived in Dallas, which had not been the case for much of his time with the Knicks, a situation he declined to discuss in any detail on Monday. Just another in a long line of Knicks fans' Phil Jackson laments. "Peace", Porzingis wrote on his verified account early Sunday morning. Davis, who requested a trade a week ago, can't become a free agent until July of 2020.

In December, Knicks team president Steve Mills said the team was pleased with Porzingis' recovery from his ACL, and another round of testing scheduled for mid-February could clarify his timeline for his return.

In doing its due diligence, NY contacted the New Orleans Pelicans about an Anthony Davis trade in recent days.

The Knicks were looking for salary-cap relief and young players or future first-round picks in a trade.

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban insists that keeping Porzingis out is not part of a strategy to tank this season.

Porzingis, 23, has known Doncic since both played in Spain.

"I can answer that for you", Cuban said.

The Mavs deemed Porzingis' potential to be worth the price, considering him a franchise-caliber player whose game complements 19-year-old rookie star Doncic.

Porzingis averaged 22.7 points and 6.6 rebounds per game before his injury last season (Feb. 6).
