Dirk Nowitzki on new Mav Kristaps Porzingis: ‘Franchise-caliber player’

He melds strong defense around the rim with the ability to shoot from deep, and at 23 years old he's already one of the most dynamic players in the league. He's mobile enough to play the four (power forward), he can be a spread-five (center), he can roll, block shots, post. Before he got hurt he played an all-around game. He's got the work ethic to be great.

New York Knicks president Steve Mills said Kristaps Porzingis told him during a 5 minute meeting that he no longer wanted to be part of the team.

According to reports from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and contributions from Zach Lowe, Ramona Shelburne and Ian Begley, franchise officials from the Knicks met with Porzingis and his agent earlier today to discuss Porzingis' concerns about the current state of the franchise and his position in the franchise's future.

Nintendo delays Mario Kart Tour to improve the game's quality
More Nintendo stores could help boost the appeal of the Switch, which is struggling to attract a wider swath of users. Since then, Nintendo has promised more for mobile gamers and said that Mario Kart Tour would be coming to mobile.

The Mavericks already are hopeful Porzingis will sign a long-term deal with the team, though Porzingis intends to inform the team that he will sign a qualifying offer in restricted free agency this summer, according to The Athletic. Assuming Porzingis fully recovers from his ACL injury-and right now there's no indication that he won't-he and the six-foot-seven Doncic should play well together.

"We wouldn't have made the deal if we thought he was going to walk obviously", Nowitzki said. Heck, when you add Dirk Nowitzki to the mix, it's a European basketball fan's dream to see three of the best players from the continent suit up on the Mavs at the same time. "We'll go from there". He had been named an All-Star just before he was injured. There's a possibility he will miss the remainder of the season.
