New York Knicks Trade Kristaps Porzingis: Details

With the Super Bowl just days away, the National Basketball Association has somehow dominated headlines with the Anthony Davis wanting to be traded to the Los Angeles Lakers to play alongside LeBron James. Going back to NY will be DeAndre Jordan and Wes Matthews, both expiring contracts, along with Dennis Smith Jr. and future first-round draft compensation.

Porzingis, who will be a restricted free agent this summer, is now sidelined following ACL surgery and could be out for the remainder of the season.

Porzingis voiced his frustration with the team's losing ways and expressed his concern that a culture is developing that will make sustained organizational success unlikely, ESPN reported.

Houston would be interested in signing Wesley Matthews if he receives a buyout from the Knicks, according to a report from ESPN, which cites unidentified league sources.

As a result of the trade, the Knicks will reportedly have roughly $75 million in cap space this summer, allowing them an opportunity to sign two max contracts.

The Knicks have never won more than 32 games in each of Porzingis' three seasons and he played for three coaches - Derek Fisher, Kurt Rambis and Jeff Hornacek - during that span.

Porzingis has career averages of 17.8 points and 7.1 rebounds, while shooting 36 percent from 3-point range. The Knicks were reportedly preparing to make an offer for Davis.

The Knicks are last in the Eastern Conference at 10-40, so Porzingis won't be able to save them this season.

This was not the first sign of cracks in the relationship between Porzingis and the Knicks.

He believes then that Porzingis - who grew so fed up with the franchise in its final days under Phil Jackson that he skipped his exit meeting before returning to Europe for the summer - was pleased with the team. Two months later, Jackson dangled Porzingis in trade talks before the draft.
