New York Knicks power forward Kristaps Porzingis

"Of course", Porzingis told the New York Post when asked if he wants to be a Knick next year. The Big Apple squad is said to be asking for a top pick in the upcoming 2017 NBA Draft this June, a player, and more future draft picks.

The New York Knicks have been a disaster despite having Carmelo Anthony, Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose on the roster, and now, they might have to resort to trading away one of their best players. "I love New York", Porzingis said in an interview outside of his Manhattan apartment complex.?

Despite refusing to meet with team president Phil Jackson after the end of the 2016-17 regular season, New York Knicks star Kristaps Porzingis wants to stay with his current team.

However, this is NY, so who knows. Porzingis is reportedly looking for a way out of the the Big Apple.

On Wednesday, Porzingis declined to address why he missed the meeting with Jackson.

The 21-year-old was not shy about calling out the team's lack of chemistry earlier in the season, telling reporter's that his teammates don't trust each other.
