Dennis Smith Jr. wishes he could face Mavs this season

The New York Knicks' recent trade of franchise star Kristaps Porzingis shocked the National Basketball Association to its core.

It is way too early to say either team won this trade, with many scenarios that could play out this offseason to change that answer. Dallas also got Courtney Lee, Tim Hardaway Jr and Trey Burke in the deal.

Smith had a much more productive night than his other ex-Maverick counterparts that were sent to NY in the megadeal that included Kristaps Porzingis.

"We're rebuilding a championship team here", Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said.

With that being the Knicks' obvious play in this deal, rival executives told Stein they liked the trade as they believe "the Knicks must have some promising inside information about their ability to lure the likes of [Kevin] Durant and [Kyrie] Irving".

President of basketball operations Donnie Nelson, who negotiated the trade with the Knicks, described Porzingis and Doncic as players who "are going to put their own signatures on their positions", much like Dirk Nowitzki has done in Dallas for the past two decades.

Mavs fans will have to wait patiently to watch Porzingis play with Doncic.

It was Cuban's way of saying he expects the 23-year-old Porzingis to sign a long-term contract, sooner than later. So when I hear that possibly Kristaps was not the main reason he's gone but his brother Janis' dislike of the Knicks could be the cause, I get a little upset.

Cuban interrupted a question for Porzingis on whether the player once considered the cornerstone of the NY franchise planned to sign long term with Dallas. My leg is feeling great. "I've been patient this whole time, and I'm going to keep staying patient, which is one of the hardest things for me to do".

"Every relationship takes time to build", Porzingis said. "We're going to make the right decisions". ". So far, so good".

This goes to show you that the Knicks looked around the league for the best possible deal despite the fact that many people feel like trading Porzingis to Dallas and getting the players and picks they received, was not a good move.
