Mavs' Cuban, Porzingis on 'same page' regarding long-term deal

Mavs' Cuban, Porzingis on 'same page' regarding long-term deal

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and the recently acquired Kristaps Porzingis are already singing from the same song sheet.

When Porzingis was asked at his introductory press conference on Monday if he'd like to sign a long-term deal, Cuban quickly interjected: "I can answer that for you. Yeah, he does," according to ESPN's Tim MacMahon.

Porzingis echoed Cuban's sentiments, adding: "Wea€™re on the same page."

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. The Mavericks will be able to retain his services as long as they match any potential offer sheet that's made to him by another team.

Porzingis has been sidelined since February 2018 with a torn ACL. He asserted Monday that he feels "ready to get back on the court," but said the plan is to wait until the 2019-20 campaign.

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.
