Kristaps Porzingis Seems Excited About Teaming Up With Luka Doncic In Dallas

Knicks and Mavericks agree trade for 'unicorn' Kristaps Porzingis, say reports

Dirk Doncic help Mavs rout Knicks at Madison Square Garden

Kristaps Porzingis #6 of the New York Knicks during the National Basketball Association game against the Phoenix Suns at Talking Stick Resort Arena on January 26, 2018 in Phoenix, Arizona. The success of this trade depends entirely on their ability to sign a superstar in free agency, which has historically been a dicey proposition for the Knicks. 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.

The other first-round pick NY receives will be top-10 protected in 2023, 2024 and 2025.

It may seem unlikely, but if the Knicks can use that cap space to secure Durant and Irving (or another top free agent), the trade won't seem almost as insane in retrospect.

Kamala Harris opens presidential bid
Just three months before announcing that she is jumping in the ring, she was asked directly about the question. The first-term senator has been billed as one of the Democrats' best chances for defeating Trump in 2020.

With Porzingis, Stein added, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Courtney Lee will go to Dallas. The Mavericks took Smith one pick later, and he posted the second triple-double of his career Wednesday when Dallas won at Madison Square Garden. Jordan is managing 11.0 points and 13.7 rebound per game, while Matthews is managing 13.1 points per game on the year. Already, there's conflicting information on his intentions in Dallas: The Athletic's Shams Charania reported that Porzingis plans to sign the one-year qualifying offer this summer, making him an unrestricted free agent after the 2019-20 season. Wojnarowski contested that report.

It's been nearly exactly a year since Porzingis suffered a torn left ACL, and it still remains to be seen when or if he'll play this season. He was enjoying an All-Star season when he got hurt a year ago, averaging a career-high 22.7 points per game.

Meanwhile, Smith moves to the Knicks after reports of discord between him and Mavs coach Rick Carlisle.

Zimbabwe protests: Crackdown is just a 'taste of things to come'
Mawarire's lawyer Beatrice Mtetwa had argued that facts presented by the prosecution did not disclose an offense. President Emmerson Mnangagwa said the price increase was needed to combat nationwide fuel shortages.

In doing its due diligence, NY contacted the New Orleans Pelicans about an Anthony Davis trade in recent days. They're win-now players, and this franchise is in no position to walk out victoriously in 2018-19, at 10-40. But that apparently was a strategy Porzingis was not on board with.

The Knicks did call New Orleans about Anthony Davis, but the Pelicans weren't interested in Porzingis. Two months later, Jackson dangled Porzingis in trade talks before the draft.

Osaka wins first set against Kvitova in Australian Open final
Like right after, the day after, I really didn't want to think about it because it wasn't necessarily the happiest memory for me. Osaka is a young, up-and-coming star who proved she's here to say, whereas Kvitova overcame the odds to make it back.
