Latvian big man Kristaps Porzingis has become the most intriguing prospect in the draft, rising up everyone’s draft boards with the possibility of being taken as high as No. 2 (it’s basically a done deal that Karl-Anthony Towns is going first overall to the Timberwolves). But Porzingis said something on Wednesday that should make any team considering him at least a little bit uncomfortable, via ESPN’s Andy Katz:
Yes, the organization that gave up multiple first-round picks for Andrea Bargnani and re-hired known sexual harasser Isiah Thomas to run their WNBA team. Definitely the best organization in the NBA. This is one way to ensure that Porzingis is drafted by the Knicks, because as any other team, it’s hard to trust his judgment after that comment.
