Hide your eyes, Knicks fans.

But multiple teams interested in making an offer for Porzingis said that they were unable to do so before NY traded Porzingis to Dallas, league sources said.

As Eddie Sefko of Mavs.com pointed out, the Mavs are more than likely to ensure Porzingis' ACL is 100 percent recovered before they pair him with Dallas' other young phenom - rookie guard Luka Doncic.

"I think that was important for me, with everything that was going on", Smith said, according to ESPN's Ian Begley.

"I get excited every time I think about it", Porzingis said.

"It's not a concern I have", Cuban said to ESPN.

"When the meeting occurred this morning, we'd already been having many conversations with a number of teams", Perry said Thursday.

The Knicks president, Steve Mills, said the team's decision to trade Porzingis was the right one, since the Latvian power forward didn't want to remain with the squad.

But multiple teams interested in making an offer for Porzingis said that they were unable to do so before NY traded Porzingis to Dallas, league sources said. That's enough cap space to attempt to sign two maximum-salary free agents. With Doncic watching from the back of the room, Porzingis expressed excitement about forming a long-term partnership with a playmaker he has been friends with since they were both playing professionally in Spain.

Porzingis averaged 22.7 points and 6.6 rebounds per game before his injury last season (Feb. 6). He recently worked out with a coach on the court for roughly 45 minutes, during which he was shooting pull-up 3-pointers and dunking.
