Boston Celtics Interested In Trading For Kristaps Porzingis

Hopefully that will happen for the Knicks before the end of this decade.

Kristaps Porzingis made clear how he felt about the Knicks' dysfunction when he skipped out on his post-season exit interview in April, and the rift apparently isn't getting better.

First, there was a drawn-out, public beef between Jackson and Anthony that included midseason trade attempts to both the Lakers and the Cavaliers.

Fortunately this is the most fluid time of the year and more calls are made regarding trade proposals than throughout the rest of the year combined (yes I would speculate that this time of the year is even more insane for general manager's than even the trade deadline since right now everyone has a tradable asset). But the perennial All-Star has a no-trade clause so he has to approve any trade.

Prviously, Jackson told the media that the Knicks were targeting wings or guards that are familiar with the triangle offense.

According to ESPN's Ian Begley, the Knicks have not been in contact with Porzingis, who's been working out in Europe, since the season ended.

Knicks president Phil Jackson is not ruling out the possibility of trading Kristaps Porzingis, according to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Jackson reportedly likes former Arizona star Lauri Markkanen, if he decides to trade away what many thought would be the future of the New York Knicks.

Even if the Knicks hold on to Porzingis, the two sides will need to fix their relationship. No one from the organization's front office or coach Jeff Hornacek have been in touch with Porzingis since he missed the exit meeting, per sources. The Knicks have reached out to Janis, but not Kristaps, the source said.

Jackson raised eyebrows in 2015 by drafting Porzingis with the Knicks' No. 4 overall pick.

Through two seasons, Porzingis has averaged 19 points and 8.6 rebounds per game. But he's had trouble staying healthy.
