Knicks agree to trade Kristaps Porzingis to the Mavericks l The Jump Breaking news Rick and roll it because wow what ways has since tweeted Dallas finalizing a trade to acquire kristaps porzingis, the New York Times Mark Steyn? Look at these details are going to go with porzingis to Dallas. Dallas is sending according to Marx and DeAndre Jordan. Wes Matthews and Dennis Smith Jr. How did we get here from waking up this morning? Kristaps porzingis was the Unicorn future of the next to this sort of I’m going to break up with you before you break up with me situation right. His name is been out there quite a bit in trade discussions with the Nexus and he’s not playing right now, he’s going to be out most of this year, if not the whole year, and I think this is been brewing for quite some time. His dissatisfaction with the Knicks but we’re getting up on the trade deadline and, if you’re going to have some determination or self-determination about where your future might be. When you have that meeting okay. But this a long way to go from a dissatisfaction is Tracy pointed out with the team with me in the being around Ramona when her phone rings – and I have now done this in a restaurants in cities. Around look around the country is one of the most fun things because her phone ring – and here we are live on The Jug I haven’t during the show. This is us he had conversations by Dennis Smith. Jr is for a while now in the next idea of trading. Porzingis is not new. The question is when he quit he walked in there and says I would like to be traded. Then you have to make it. You have to go into okay, who’s. Here’S the teams that we’ve called here are the list of things that we know we’re interested. We can get back and I think these Explorer conversations and Frameworks of deals have been in the works for a long time. The question what changes today he goes in and says I don’t to be here, not even knowing what Kristoff porzingis wanting to do he’s a restricted free agent right. So you make this deal. Why, though, and we know he’s supremely confident so Cuban and Rick Carlisle clearly decided okay, we know it think about this. They are that much closer to their own super team. If we’re talking about big threes right, because you’re not. You’re going to have porzingis, you wanted to do what I’ve been told, I’m sure you have been to the Western Conference stop 18th and they couldn’t beat any of them. So, therefore, you go back in the lottery, particularly if you’re near the top. It’S really really interesting to me that this came together so fast, DeAndre, Jordan, Dennis Smith, Jr Wesley Matthews, when you make one trade you’re, also making your else, I’m not making other trades and so they’ve had a pretty good sense of what the market for porzingis would Be for the past few months, I think this is not new, that they have discussed with other people. What then Mark would be, and then any general manager would do, but I think what did the big thing we’ve all been talked about this week is Anthony Davis right well by making this trade they’re, obviously not including him in a trade or offer a proposal for New Orleans, my understanding is that was discussed. New Orleans did not have interest, then you move on. Do you expect the next to turn around and any of these pieces? They picked up today to then use before February 7th to make another deal quick turn. Can you pick up a lottery pick in Dennis Smith Jr, who has lost his job and doesn’t really have a future in Dallas? But this is a nice pick up here, for the next is, as you said Mike, they didn’t one year left on. His Dale need to clear some salary-cap space to open the summer when we have the free agencies of Kawhi, Leonard and Kevin, and I think this if, if off the top of my head, I think this has helped him get a little further Durant Kevin Durant, the Attraction of coming to play in New York Garden in the idea of Reviving that franchise and being on board become an attractive place to go if you’re starting to have a conversation with other free-agent. A second guy. In order for me to go and play with the Knicks versus it’s very attractive is coming off of an ACL injury. He has a long injury history and, if you’re the Nixon, you’re thinking about doing who knows his injury history better than the Knicks Smith, then I will lose every game. The Knicks were bad enough without porzingis to lose every game and be in the Zion and Wesley Mathews Villas II, Williamson sweepstakes, the next to me out of that equation, to make another deal because having these guys open this point of the season on would be to Have as good a chance as possible Landing that number one pick, that would be a game-changer for that franchise, that man in that building and MSG I mean I don’t know if they could sell more tickets than they are. I’M sorry, I’m ended the chances of that. We haven’t seen its player enter the draft at this potential number one in a very long time. If I were the next would not jeopardize that 25 % of the last place team, but you got to be one of the body. Rachel Nichols, Ramona Shelburne, Michael Wilbon and Tracy McGrady of The Jump react to breaking news that the New York Knicks reportedly will trade Kristaps Porzingis, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Courtney Lee to the Dallas Mavericks for Dennis Smith Jr., DeAndre Jordan and Wesley Matthews.
