Knicks, Porzingis can return but a sacrifice will be needed

Kristaps Porzingis could return to New York this summer.

Newsday’s Steve Popper floated the idea of Porzingis reuniting with the Knicks as a potential upgrade at center, replacing Mitchell Robinson.

“New front office, new coach, no connection to the hopes and dreams he once brought to New York and burned bridges on both sides. What you see now is a possible replacement for Mitchell Robinson in the middle who would provide outside shooting and clear the lane for Brunson, RJ Barrett and Julius Randle”, Popper wrote.

Porzingis is coming off his best NBA season, playing in 65 games, his most since the 2016-17 season.
