Porzingis, who is set to become a restricted free agent this summer, is planning to inform the Mavericks he intends to sign a qualifying offer, The Athletic's Shams Charania reported.

The Knicks are expected to commence discussions on trading Porzingis before next Thursday's National Basketball Association trade deadline. Davis has expressed his desire to leave New Orleans, but the Pelicans were reportedly not interested in a trade. Now the two sides are parting ways less than four years after he was drafted with the fourth overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. Per Wojnarowski, he has been searching for clarity on his future role with the team and the franchise's direction.

UPDAAAAAAATE: Tim just said he's never seen Porzingis play and also seemed like mildly upset that we got rid of DeAndre Jordan so maybe that applies to you too? Dallas coach Rick Carlisle told a pregame radio show that he thought the 7-foot-3 Porzingis and the 6-foot-7 ballhandling Doncic had a chance to form a newer, taller version of the Nowitzki-Steve Nash combination that played together in Dallas two decades ago.

Porzingis was hurt February 6 after landing on a dunk in a game against Milwaukee.

The Knicks own the NBA's worst record at 10-40, but winning has not been the organization's focus this season as it rebuilds with the goal of becoming a consistent contender down the road.

"He's such an wonderful player, so this could be a good thing", Doncic said. "That's more important than anything else that we can lay out".

Porzingis' qualifying offer next season is worth $4.5 million.

He believes then that Porzingis - who grew so fed up with the franchise in its final days under Phil Jackson that he skipped his exit meeting before returning to Europe for the summer - was pleased with the team.
