The Mavs Reportedly Werent On The List Of Preferred Trade Destinations For Kristaps Porzingis

The Mavs Reportedly Werent On The List Of Preferred Trade Destinations For Kristaps Porzingis

Kristaps Porzingis isA officially a member of the Dallas Mavericks, although he isna€™t expected play for them until next season as he continues to rehab from a torn ACL.

The question for the Mavs is whether Porzingis is playing next year on the qualifying offer, with plans to be an unrestricted free agent in 2020, or on a freshly minted, 5-year, $158 million max contract with the Mavs. There was initially aA report that he would be taking the QO, but in his introductory presser Mark Cuban made it clear the Mavs expected to get him signed andA Porzingis indicated he was a€œon the same pagea€ with Dallas in that regard.

Going back a step further, the lingering questions about Porzingisa€™ restricted free agency and his injury history played a role in his departure from New York. Everything around the rapidly changing nature of the day Porzingis was dealt raised eyebrows, as it was reported he had a meeting with the Knicks regarding the franchisea€™s future, then the Knicks were apparently convinced he wanted out, and finally he was traded all in the span of about an hour and a half.

Thata€™s not typically how things work in the NBA and no one believed a blockbuster deal was struck in 90 minutes following one meeting.A Marc Stein of theA New York TimesA brought lots of details on Tuesday in his newsletterA about how it all went down and it seems both sides have been telling partial truths.
