Knicks say they had as many as eight offers for Kristaps Porzingis

There might be a time when I go into more detail about that situation, but right now I just want to focus on my new team: "the Dallas Mavericks".

But it's going to have to wait until next season, which was made clear during Monday's introductory press conference for Porzingis and his three teammates who arrived in Dallas from the New York Knicks after last week's blockbuster, seven-player trade.

Other Knicks sent in this deal will play, though: Courtney Lee, Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr. Nothing more. That may have provided disappointment, if Porzingis stayed, for those expecting his return before the 2018-19 season ended, but the Knicks weren't in contention, so it didn't make sense to return him.

Now after years of making bad deals and wasting millions on buyouts; the Knicks have part ways with Porzingis who had become exhausted of losing and witnessing what he believed to be the mistreatment of his teammate Enes Kanter.

The way NY are going, they are likely going to have a top pick in this year's draft.

Porzingis, 23, has known Doncic since both played in Spain.

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

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.

While the Knicks say they are happy with their haul of Dennis Smith Jr., a pair of veterans, two first-round draft picks and enough salary cap space to sign the free agents of their dreams, they apparently were in the market for something bigger when they first started to shop Porzingis around the league. The Knicks gets two future first-round picks. In 2017-18, prior to the injury, Porzingis averaged 22.7 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.4 blocks while shooting 43.9 percent from the field and 39.5 percent on 4.8 3-point attempts.

Is this what Kristaps Porzingis meant when he said that the truth would come out?
