We're not even absolutely sure it's true. So I guess I'd like to know some heartwarming details if it's no big deal.
So whats the difference if its a scratch, broken bone or tendon if we plan to sign the guy to five year contract and the next season starts in four months?

I honestly never believed the TMZ report in the first place. Being mad some guy was traded from a team you're a fan of is an incredibly stupid and unlikely reason for someone to get into a bloody bar fight. Not everything is about basketball.

The fact that Porzingis was apparently yelling at them about "sending them back to Russia" made it much more likely to me that they were fighting over something related to nationalism, especially considering the history between Latvia and the USSR/Russia.

If there is no structural damage, then its a necessary nobrainer.

Make him an UFA this sommer and he gets several max contract offer

As far as I'm concerned that contract was started the second we made the trade for him.

I agree, this is a high risk, high reward move and if KP is not healthy we are totally screwed.

Agreed. The real question is if he will adjust his game to avoid the high flying put back dunks.

KP could easily stick to PnRs, ISOs, & 3 point shots and run 22 ppg. We don't need the flashy stuff from a 7 ft 3 guy who has not shown to be durable.

Oh ok then. Dallas is going to be something else next season.

Can but don’t want to and also Bird Rights mean nothing when under the cap

Bird rights mean we can sign him for up to the max AFTER hitting the cap

We sign him now and he just eats up all our cap

Love the inclusion of small stuff such as drawing off-ball fouls, battling for position, etc. not just stats...

I did notice he was pretty clumsy and borderline awkward when jumping and landing on alley oops. I recall an interview saying they were working on overall leg strength and ancillary movements, so I trust our staff to make him a little more rounded physically and protect those knees and ankles.

I've also underrated his defense myself. We all knew he was ultra long and a shot blocker, but his mobility and sheer length will allow him to defend off the pick and roll. He will ultimately provide a rim presence we haven't had. Not to mention affecting passing lanes.

The face to basket and back to basket game is strong. And then he'll be out 27 feet or so and drill it in your face. I am excite. Also to note, Ntilikina and THJ play very well with and off KP.

Here's my go-to for showing the people how good he was prior to the injury: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOM6aBAmc84

At least Porzingis is going to be a Mav. I just wish players would not be nervous about his health and roll the dice to join him and Luka.

New statistical analysis by 538 shows that KP is one of the best defenders in the league:

P.S. It also shows Maxi, DFS, and Delon are up there

Kind of a small sample but Seth Curry rates really well, too. Brunson, not so much.

@ShamsCharania: Sources: Dallas Mavericks star Kristaps Porzingis‘ five-year, $158M maximum contract gives him a player option in the final season in 2023.

@NickVanExit: The more I watch Porzingis with these guards he had to play with the more I think he might average 30 points per game next year with Luka.

@NickVanExit: Like.... Luka Doncic is about to play with a 7'3 center that is a better shooter than him.

@bobbykaralla: Roughly 28 percent of KP's career FGA have been 3-pointers. I would not be surprised if that number is above 40 this season. He's a career 36 percent 3P shooter and hit 39.5 percent his last season with NYK. Upping the volume while maintaining that efficiency would be very good.

@bobbykaralla: Porzingis shot 39.5% from 3 during his last season in New York. 95 percent of his 3PA came from above the break. Last season, Dallas took the third-most ATB 3s and finished 28th in making them, at 33.3%. That will help a lot!

Dirk is perfectly fine! He just blocks out for other rebounders when he can and is out shooting twos and threes so he can't get offensive boards.

Wait, you're talking about KP?

KP is gonna put strain on the Mavs defense, so they'll need MOBILE perimeter defenders, right?

That's what I read somewhere on the internet.

Adams is barely better than Powell (who himself is barely passable as a one-dimensional roll-man), who we already have for 15million dollars less.

I was being sarcastic. Sorry the tone didn't come through.

I was tired of people complaining about Dirk being sub-par on offensive glass, rebounding in general, and defense.

KP is going to be fine, particularly with a strong supporting cast 1-3 rebounding it and defending.

It must be true then! Why even delve any deeper into it after reading it on the Internet?

@townbrad: Interesting stuff. Several of these experts are more bullish on the Mavericks than most, particularly Porzingis.

Last week we talked about the guard most likely to make their first appearance on an All-NBA team. Which forward who has never made it before but you think could sneak in this year?

Goins: I absolutely think the Dallas Mavericks’ forward Kristaps Porzingis could sneak into his first All-NBA appearance next season, rehabbing back from a torn ACL that has sidelined him for the past 17-plus months. Before his injury, Porzingis was on pace to becoming only the sixth player in NBA history to average 22 points, six rebounds, and two blocks before his age-23 season as a New York Knick. The other five names on the list? Tim Duncan, Anthony Davis, Bob McAdoo, Shaquille O’Neal, and Hakeem Olajuwan. Each of those players have wound up to make at least two All-NBA teams in their career. For Kristaps, being the co-lead man in Dallas with Luka Doncic, along with a brand new max contract, should give him the edge to return to form. Keep a close eye on him.

Staley: Kristaps Porzingis, who is now in Dallas could have a breakout season for the Mavericks. Teaming up with Luka Doncic should help take pressure off of Porzingis as he never played with someone of that talent. Before tearing his ACL in 2017-18, Porzingis was averaging career-highs in points (22.7), rebounds (6.6) along with blocks in 48 games as he was an 2018 NBA All-Star. If he can return to that form, he can definitely be named to one of the All-NBA teams

Pippen should be embarrased about this.

Also, Porzingis is going to get this kid.

Default How to Alienate a Unicorn

Mavericks Giving Porzingis the Star Treatment He Should've Received from NIX

1) Refuse to employ his personal trainer

2) Fire the development coach with whom he worked best

3) Trade his best friend on the team

4) Shaft and humiliate the other international players on the team


Also, I find it odd how not a single word has been uttered about the extortion situation lately, but there IS fairly extensive reporting about how Dolan/MSG are attempting to scuttle a new arena being built by Balmer in LA, and how Dolan/MSG managed to sabotage a new (Jets/Giants) football stadium from being built in Manhattan back in 2003, fearing it would compete for business with MSG. That's how MSG rolls, which raises speculation that they also leaked the Porzingis extortion story to cover their asses regarding the trade, for which they currently have NOTHING. Matthews, gone; Jordan, gone; Smith, not with the team, and looking like a flameout. All they seem to have is future late-1st rounders.

But Dolan will wait too long to pull the trigger on firing Perry and Mills, and probably won't fire both of them as he should. He has a very peculiar loyalty to people like Isiah Thomas and Steve Mills, but just for kicks will shaft NBA lifers like Larry Brown, Donnie Walsh, Lenny Wilkens and Phil Jackson.

I'm not sure I'd even play KP in NYC worrying that an end of bench Pismo Beach Panther might try to injure him.

To be fair, the Knicks are a trash franchise and the laughingstock of the NBA. They have a pretty sordid record of being awful and sleazy.

The reporter may be biased, but it's like a reporter picking on Facebook-- it might be biased, but they basically asked for scrutiny.

The worst thing a reporter can do to trash the NIX is to report the facts, just the facts.
