Kristaps Porzingis Had Nets, Clippers On Trade List But Not Mavericks

One source told Stein the team asked "about a hundred times" whether or not he was on the table, and the Mavs weren't as anxious about Porzingis' injuries as other teams might have been.

Porzingis said the plan all along was to sit out the season. NY added point guard Dennis Smith Jr., the ninth overall pick in the 2017 draft, along with guard Wesley Matthews and center DeAndre Jordan. They were looking to see if teams would part ways with their presumed untouchable players, like Jazz PG Donovan Mitchell and Kings PG De'Aaron Fox, but nothing came of it.

Apparently, Cuban believes he's learned from that infamous decision, judging from what he told The New York Times' Marc Stein. The Knicks gets two future first-round picks.

President of basketball operations Donnie Nelson, who negotiated the trade with the Knicks, described Porzingis and Doncic as players who "are going to put their own signatures on their positions", much like Dirk Nowitzki has done in Dallas for the past two decades.

The Porzingis brothers forced New York's hand, though, by telling the team Kristaps would leave for Spain to continue his rehab if he wasn't traded by the February 7 deadline.

Mavs fans will have to wait patiently to watch Porzingis play with Doncic.

Porzingis had dinner with J.J. Barea after arriving in Dallas, and the Mavericks guard who is out for the season with a torn Achilles tendon said Porzingis had plenty of questions about the 2011 title run led by Nowitzki and sparked in the NBA Finals by Barea. For that reason, I think the Mavs will look to make a move. "I hope we have a lot of time to spend together now that I'm in here in Dallas while he's still playing. I'm excited to get back on the court as soon as possible", said Porzingis, a native of Latvia, who showed off his fluent Spanish during the press conference and spoke better English than most of the packed media crammed into the American Airlines Center interview room. I don't think this young man [Porzingis] to my left is Dirk.

The Mavericks, though, were a team the Knicks knew had significant trade interest in Porzingis.
