The New York Knicks are one of the teams on the trade destination list Kyrie Irving gave to the Cleveland Cavaliers. However, they don’t want to ruin their future by banking a superstar that may not stick around in the long term. Cleveland reportedly wants Kristaps Porzingis in any trades involving Irving going to New York.
The Knicks have made it clear they will not part ways with Porzingis. Many view Porzingis as having the potential to be a legitimate superstar in the next few years. The chances of forming a young superstar duo may be Irving’s main reason for liking the Knicks situation. Porzingis is not going anywhere.
