Did the Knicks make the right decision?

Just days after the stunning trade that sent him, the franchise cornerstone for the New York Knicks, off to the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for Dennis Smith Jr. and salary cap relief, the Latvian big man has jumped back on Instagram to provide the much-anticipated sequel to an earlier cryptic post teasing some major revelations.

NY didn't necessarily get the haul indicative of Porzingis' otherworldly talent by ending up with headliners such as Dennis Smith Jr. and DeAndre Jordan.

Guards Tim Hardaway Jr. and Trey Burke, who were also acquired in the Porzingis trade, took part in Monday's practice as well.

This comes in the wake of Davis handing in a trade request at the New Orleans Pelicans with the Knicks being linked with a move for the five-time All-Star.

The move came after Knicks president Steve Mills said the organization had doubts that Porzingis was on board with its rebuild plan. They have a lot of money to spend, likely will land a top 5 draft pick and every agent wants their star client to play in a big city like NY.

"I see two guys who are going to put their own signature on their positions", general manager Donnie Nelson said.

West Ham United v Liverpool
Liverpool's current lead in the Premier League is 2 points, fans will be hoping the gap returns to 5 points in a few hours time . Wilshere, who played in West Ham United's first four matches, had surgery on a persistent left ankle problem in September.

Now we're hearing some significant news about Porzingis' status that may have to do with his departure. "Kristaps and I have talked a lot in a short amount of time about how I see him being integrated into what we do", Carlisle said.

One of the challenges for NY this summer will be finding good role players to put around two stars because they won't have a lot of money left over if they hand out two max contracts.

Even then, it seems that the Knicks sold Porzingis for pennies on the dollar.

Porzingis expressed excitement about teaming with 19-year-old rookie sensation Luka Doncic, with whom he has been friends since they were both playing as professionals in Spain.
