Dirk Nowitzki had high praise for Kristaps Porzingis after learning the former Knicks star would become his teammate following his trade to the Mavericks, calling the 23-year-old forward a "franchise-caliber player" and "a ideal fit for the new National Basketball Association". The 23-year-old is set to enter restricted free agency at season's end. He can be a spread 5. "He's a good dude".
The general consensus appears to be that the Knicks got fleeced and gave up a franchise player who was supposed to be the cornerstone of championships for years to come.

Rafa Benitez refuses to confirm he will sign new Newcastle contract
Two years later, we couldn't be happier with what Miguel has contributed to the club, and that he is realizing his dream of playing in the Premier League.
The Knicks' 10-40 record is proof of a stellar tank job, meaning that they are putting themselves in the mix to draft Duke's Zion Williamson in the summer, and until recently the team also had enough cap space to add a max contract-level player in the off-season.
MacMahon further reported that it wouldn't affect the Mavericks' attempts to sign Porzingis to a long-term deal. "We obviously think Porzingis is a great young talent, similar in many ways to Dirk", coach Rick Carlisle said on the Mavs' flagship station, 103.3 FM ESPN, on Thursday, according to ESPN. "He's got a franchise-type player game", Nowitzki said after the trade, according to the Dallas Morning News. "We'll go from there". Doncic, the 2019 NBA Rookie of the Year Award favorite, is expected to form a dynamic partnership with Porzingis once the big man fully recovers from the ACL injury he suffered last February. There's a possibility he will miss the remainder of the season.
