"Our goal is to keep these two together for the next 20 years", Cuban said Monday as the National Basketball Association club held a press conference to introduce new acquisitions Porzingis, Tim Hardaway Jr.
Porzingis suffered a torn ACL in February 2018 and has not played this season.
But when asked about the Knicks at his introductory news conference with the Dallas Mavericks on Monday, the All-Star power forward bit his tongue, although he hinted he might have more to say in the future.
"The city deserves better than that".
Immediately after the shocking trade was announced, one report suggested that other teams were surprised the Knicks made Porzingis available in trade talks. They have a lot of money to spend, likely will land a top 5 draft pick and every agent wants their star client to play in a big city like NY.

Marks has three pending murder charges against him, authorities said, adding that he is considered to be "extremely unsafe ". April Pease, the mother of Marks' son, disappeared on March 17, 2009, the local newspaper reported .
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 last two decades. The Knicks gets two future first-round picks.
"Every relationship takes time to build", Porzingis said.
If the New York Knicks land the top pick in the draft, they likely would select Duke sensation Zion Williamson, which would be a big help in landing a top free agent.
The Mavs deemed Porzingis' potential to be worth the price, considering him a franchise-caliber player whose game complements 19-year-old rookie star Doncic.
When Porzingis was asked by a reporter Monday if he envisioned signing a long-term deal with Dallas, Cuban responded, "I can answer that for you".
Porzingis has averaged 17.8 points and 7.1 rebounds over 186 career appearances.
