The stud guards Knicks couldn't get for Kristaps Porzingis

"If nothing was accomplished and he feels for his career he wants to go elsewhere to win, then that's his decision, honestly".

Porzingis was introduced to the media on Monday by the Dallas Mavericks, days after they pulled off a shocking trade with the New York Knicks to acquire him.

The Knicks ended up dealing Porzingis to the Mavericks after the young star called a meeting with NY executives and told them that he no longer wanted to play for the team, prompting the Knicks to rush to trade him before the February 7 deadline.

Once the Knicks chose to make Porzingis available to Dallas, the two sides' previous working relationship made the deal go through quickly. Just another in a long line of Knicks fans' Phil Jackson laments. 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. Milwaukee doesn't have the assets to compete with the other offers likely to be on the table for the Pelicans, but that shouldn't prevent them from making their best offer and seeing how the cards fall.

While the Mavs will need to wait to see Porzingis suit up alongside Rookie of the Year front-runner Luka Doncic, Porzingis believes he's already building chemistry with the Slovenian.

There has been a strong disconnect between Porzingis and Knicks management in recent years, and it culminated in Thursday's meeting.

"I get excited every time I think about it", Porzingis said.

"I see two guys who are going to put their own signature on their positions", Nelson said.

And they left two open spots on the Best Picture possible-field-of-ten which DEFINITELY should have been filled this year. Spike Lee was nominated for his first directing Oscar 30 years after a writing nod for 1989's "Do the Right Thing".

That may depend on how much they're willing to offer Porzingis when he becomes a restricted free agent.

Finally, Tim was at Porzingis' press conference.

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

Porzingis, 23, said he had a "great relationship" with the 19-year-old Slovenian, having played against him in Europe.

Michy Batshuayi could also head to Milan as a replacement for Higuain but his preference is to join Thierry Henry's Monaco side. It now looks as though Atletico have got the deal over the line and Morata will be returning to Madrid.

Cuban said the Mavericks will evaluate Porzingis and develop a timetable for his return.
