Kristaps Porzingis Posts Hilarious Reaction On Instagram To The Knicks Trying To Trade Him

By 06.21.17

Yesterday, Yahoo Sports NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski dropped a bomb when he reported that Phil Jackson and the New York Knicks were open to taking offers for their franchise player Kristaps Porzingis. Apparently, the Knicks are frustrated with Porzingis after he skipped out of the season-ending exit meeting with the team.

The Knicks are poised to begin listening to rival teams’ pitches on potential Porzingis deals, league sources said.

Around the NBA, the possibility of Jackson trading Porzingis, a uniquely talented and wildly popular 7-foot-3 player, has been met with bewilderment by rival executives eager to make a deal with New York. Since Porzingis – frustrated with the level of dysfunction within the franchise – skipped his season-ending exit meeting, the Knicks haven’t made an attempt to reach or visit him in Europe this summer, league sources told The Vertical.

Porzingis remains determined to play for the Knicks and see his tenure through to success, sources said, but it has become clearer that Jackson has become increasingly intrigued with testing the trade market for Porzingis. The Knicks haven’t been engaging with teams on Porzingis, but that possibility is becoming more intriguing to Jackson between now and Thursday’s draft, league sources said.

Porzingis, who is currently in Latvia, took to Instagram to post this reaction to the Knicks trying to trade him with the caption “for real?”

Porzingis’ reaction is very similar to Carmelo Anthony’s reaction to his trade rumors at the end of the season.

The PorzinGod should be happy that the Knicks are trying to trade him because who wants to play for that shit show of a team for the rest of their career.
