Kristaps Porzingis Continues Instagram Intrigue With Post Claiming New York 'Deserves Better'

The towering Latvian, who was traded to Dallas from the New York Knicks on Thursday, will hit the restricted free-agent market after this season.

But multiple teams interested in making an offer for Porzingis said that they were unable to do so before NY traded Porzingis to Dallas, league sources said.

"Every relationship takes time to build", Porzingis said.

"Dirk is a guy I looked up to growing up", Porzingis said. "There might be a time when I go into more detail about that situation, but right now I just want to focus on my new team, on the Dallas Mavericks".

When the New York Knicks traded big man Kristaps Porzingis to the Dallas Mavericks in a surprising blockbuster deal last week, they may have torpedoed any chance they had at landing New Orleans Pelicans superstar Anthony Davis, at least for now. Jimmy Butler could decide he doesn't want to see the Raptors, Knicks and Celtics four times each next season and find a new home in free agency - and whoever lands Butler lands one of the best two-way players in the National Basketball Association.

While Knicks President Steve Mills said Porzingis made it clear in their meeting last week that he wanted out, the fourth overall pick in 2015 said he preferred to discuss the future rather than dwell on the past. And with Jordan already on the team this season, he might feel inclined to re-sign in order to stay in NY and help them.

Widespread flu activity reported
There have been five flu-related deaths in the province so far this season, three in the Eastern Health Region. The highest hospitalization rate was among adults 65 and older.

"The city deserves better than that". Nothing more. That may have provided disappointment, if Porzingis stayed, for those expecting his return before the 2018-19 season ended, but the Knicks weren't in contention, so it didn't make sense to return him.

For now, Knicks fans will have to continue to wonder what those comments mean exactly.

Porzingis has been sidelined for almost a year after tearing his left ACL. "I really think we can be something special". "My legs (are) feeling great". "I feel bouncy and I'm ready to get back on the court".

He's already dreaming of the ways to use Porzingis, a 7-foot-3 center/forward, and his prized rookie phenom Luka Doncic, together as a one-two punch in the National Basketball Association. "Yeah, he does", Cuban said to laughter.

Porzingis smiled and said, "We're on the same page".
