Kristaps Porzingis’ brother: ‘Despite how the Knicks are treating their players, Kris wants to stay in New York’

The Knicks are reportedly willing to trade Kristaps Porzingis after a contentious start to his offseason.

Ian Begley of ESPN:

No one from the Knicks organization has been in touch with Kristaps Porzingis since he skipped exit meetings. Porzingis’ brother, Janis, is frustrated by the lack of communication. “Despite how the Knicks are treating their players, Kris wants to stay in New York. He loves the city and he loves the fans and he wants to win with this team,” Janis Porzingis told ESPN. “If he’s going to be traded, he’s going to play out his contact and decide his future on his own.”

“Despite how the Knicks are treating their players.”

“Despite how the Knicks are treating their players.”

“DESPITE HOW THE KNICKS ARE TREATING THEIR PLAYERS.”

What a statement!

Janis isn’t holding back, and considering how the Knicks have also treated Carmelo Anthony, can you blame him? Phil Jackson is turning all his players into sympathetic figures.
