Major trading parts were first reported by The Athletic Shams Charania, with the New York Times Marc Stein, who reported additional information.
While Porzing is still recovering from ACL trauma, he is considered to be one of the best new players in the NBA, averaging 22.7 points, 6.6 rebounds, 5.3 help points and 2.4 blocks per game last season. Last season, he called the All-Star game before he suffered a trauma in February.

Trade a couple of Porzingis with the annual Rookie Luke Doncic, one of two combinations that could be one of the best in the coming years.
Bombshell's trade came after the initial reports from ESPN, which published a story with four lines – Adrian Wojnarowski, Zach Lowe, Ramona Shelburne and Ian Begley, claiming that Porzing was concerned about the state of the Knicks franchise, culture and his position with the team.
He managed to make these complaints at the meeting with the leadership, and Knicks chose to move him quickly.
According to Woj, Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Clippers, Miami Heat, San Antonio Spurs and Toronto Raptors were among Porzing's interested teams before the Mavericks collected their package.
For the Mavericks, this trade gives them a perfect player, located next to Doncic, while getting rid of some of the final deal. Knicks take out contracts that expire with the possibility of opening two maximum seats in the summer. Of course, Kevin Durant is probably at the top of their wish list.
The trade left the NBA stunned by many players and dwarfs who received social media to express their disbelief.
Although the deal has shaken many Knicks fans, several dwarfs claimed it was actually a bargain for both teams.
