Porzingis tells NBA Knicks fans to 'Stay Woke!'

It's a bold move for the Knicks, especially considering that NY is no longer an attractive free-agent destination for numerous reasons Porzingis articulated to management before his departure.

NY dealt Tim Hardaway Jr. and Courtney Lee along with Porzingis.

"The city deserves better than that".

Porzingis will reportedly not play for the Mavericks this season as he continues recovering from an ACL tear he suffered a year ago. Porzingis sent through an Instagram story on Sunday morning.

Porzingis was originally selected by NY with the fourth overall pick of the 2015 NBA Draft, a selection that was met with boos and contention from Knicks fans.

The foundation was in place for Porzingis to leave, as he has been unhappy with management and the direction of the organization for some time.

You can imagine why a 23-year-old center with that type of ability would garner that type of interest around the league.

Porzingis is expected to sit out the remainder of this season for Dallas.

However, they now have the worst record in the National Basketball Association this campaign, largely due to the fact Porzingis has been out all season.
