Kristaps Porzingis made his return to New York on Monday, but it wasn't at Madison Square Garden. Instead, it was further downtown in Brooklyn where his new Mavericks squad was beaten badly by the Nets. And as the game ended, Porzingis was swift to leave the Barclays Center court as he didn't want to answer any questions regarding his departure from the Knicks last month.

After the shocking blockbuster deal just before the NBA trade deadline between the Mavs and Knicks, Porzingis left by telling Knicks fans know to "stay woke." This statement on his Instagram came after the Knicks' comments about how Porzingis was unhappy and forced the team's hand to trade him. Porzingis has yet to address any of this since shipping out to Dallas. 

Instead, Porzingis' new teammates and head coach answered for him, but one teammate that was shipped to Dallas with him in Tim Hardaway Jr. knows the Knicks made a big mistake.

The summer of 2010 was going to be the Knicks' summer. 

Finally. 

After years -- make that decades -- of bloated payroll and anemic win totals, things were going to change. The change started in 2008 with the hiring of former Pacers exec Donnie Walsh, who made it his top priority to clear cap space, something the Knicks had never done in the era of free agency. He dealt Jamal Crawford and Zach Randolph, the team's two top scorers, in the season's first month, with the focus firmly on the summer of 2010, when LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Amaré Stoudemire would all be free agents. The big-ticket guys always talked about how much they loved playing in Madison Square Garden -- now one, or even two, of them could make the World's Most Famous arena their home for max money.

Well, we all know what happened next.

As Kristaps Porzingis lifted his new Mavericks threads during Monday's introductory press conference in Dallas, it was the official end to a crazy few days that saw the 7-foot-3 Latvian go from the Knicks' franchise star, to a disgruntled one looking for a new beginning, to the centerpiece in a shocking blockbuster deal.

The deal went down so fast that all the details surrounding the evolution of trading New York's franchise cornerstone were left merky. That is until The New York Times' Marc Stein did some digging to solve some of the questions Knicks fans may still have. 

Possibly the biggest question is whether or not the Knicks got the best deal for the 23-year-old Porzingis, who is almost a year out since he tore his ACL last season. It turns out New York was quietly poking around the league with Porzingis' name in trade packages for most of last month. They were looking to see if teams would part ways with their presumed untouchable players, like Jazz PG Donovan Mitchell and Kings PG De'Aaron Fox, but nothing came of it.

Things to know about Friday's game

1) With Porzingis gone, Irving may be one of the potential free agents that fills his spot this offseason, and Knicks fans welcomed him with loud cheers when he was called during starting lineups. And Irving continued to hear cheers as he dropped a game-high 23 points on 9-for-20 from the field with 10 rebounds and six assists as well for a double-double...

The Knicks' roster is in a limbo after the Kristaps Porzingis trade.

Upon Thursday's blockbuster trade with the Mavericks that also sent Tim Hardaway Jr. Courtney Lee and Trey Burke to Dallas, the players the Knicks received -- Dennis Smith Jr.DeAndre Jordan and Wes Matthews -- won't be cleared and in New York in time for Friday's game against the Celtics.

And considering Emmanuel Mudiay is dealing with a shoulder injury and Frank Ntilikina suffered a groin injury, who actually will play for the Knicks?

Mills Confirms Porzingis news 00:01:05
New York Knicks president Steve Mills said on a conference call that Kristaps Porzingis said he didn't want to be a Knick anymore.

When news broke earlier Thursday that Kristaps Porzingis was unhappy with how the Knicks' new direction was headed and no longer wanted to be a part of it, many believed the Knicks wouldn't give in. 

But that's exactly what they did when they sent Porzingis, along with Tim Hardaway Jr., Courtney Lee and Trey Burke to Dallas in exchange for DeAndre Jordan, Dennis Smith Jr., Wesley Matthews, a 2021 unprotected first-round pick and a 2023 top-10 protected first-round pick.

So why did the Knicks decide to grant Porzingis' wish? They had all the control with the Latvian a restricted free agent, no no-trade clause in his contract, and the fact that he still has yet to play since his torn ACL last February, making his value much lower than it may have been in the past...

The Knicks must have reason to believe Kevin Durant is coming to New York.

That's the only conclusion to draw from Thursday's shocking trade of Kristaps Porzingis to the Dallas Mavericks.

After Porzingis and his brother, Janis, who is also his agent, met with the front office and expressed frustration with the direction of the franchise, the Knicks quickly sent him to Dallas along with some long-term contracts for a package headlined by second-year guard Dennis Smith, Jr. and two future first-round picks...

1) The main storyline was Doncic's first taste of the Garden, and it didn't begin the way he wanted it to with an airball from three.

Doncic would finished with 16 points on 7-of-18 shooting along with eight boards and five assists in a pedestrian night for the NBA Rookie of the Year hopeful.

With Anthony Davis making it clear that he wants out of New Orleans, and the Knicks having the assets to pull off a trade before the deadline, there's a buzz in the city that the star forward could maybe come to New York.

Yes, July 1 is still more than five months away. Hell, we haven't even hit the All-Star break yet. But it's never too early to start thinking about free agency. Here in New York City, the Mecca of Basketball (that's right), this summer is crucial for the local teams.

This year projects to have arguably the best NBA free agent class ever with players like Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard, Jimmy Butler, Kyrie Irving, and Klay Thompson all -- in one way or another -- able to hit the open market. With hundreds of other players available this offseason and a league salary cap set to rise to $109 million for the 2019-20 season, even in the dead of winter all eyes are on summer '19.

New York's teams are expected to be big players in free agency, with both the Knicks and Nets possessing ample salary cap space and the ambition to exponentially improve. But which NYC franchise has the advantage when it comes to attracting the best talent? Quintessential New York or the "Coolest City in America?" (At least according to GQ, never mind that Brooklyn is actually a borough). Do players want to restore a storied franchise or be the face of a new movement? Midtown steakhouse or Smorgasburg?

Let's take a look at some of the major factors that will either attract or deter free agents and, thus, determine the future of hoops in the Big Apple.

The Knicks are gearing up to clear cap space for this summer. 

Per Marc Stein of The New York Times, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Courtney Lee are both indeed on the trading block and the Knicks are hoping to move them by the Feb. 7 trade deadline. 

Hardaway and Lee are both under contract for next season and moving them without taking any money on would give them the cap space to pursue a top free agent, such as Kevin Durant.

Hardaway Jr. upset with Trier 00:02:23
New York Knicks guard Tim Hardaway Jr. wasn't too happy learning about Allonzo Trier's social media post after the Houston Rockets game.

As if the David Fizdale-Enes Kanter friction was not enough, there was also some Tim Hardaway Jr. and Allonzo Trier drama on Thursday. 

Late Wednesday night, following the Knicks' 114-110 loss to the Rockets, Trier direct messaged a fan on Twitter who was mocking the rookie for "ducking" behind James Harden on a screen that allowed Eric Gordon to hit a wide open, go-ahead three-pointer. 

Trier said it was supposed to be a switch, implying that Hardaway was at fault for not defending Gordon on that play.

The Knicks are in full-on tank mode, which is working. Trading Tim Hardaway Jr. and/or Courtney Lee could help their quest to clear more cap space for the summer of 2019, but there might be an issue.

According to Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic, the Knicks "have been adamant about not attaching assets" to either Hardaway or Lee in order to help facilitate a trade.

Vorkunov notes, however, that the pressure of the trading deadline -- on Feb. 7 -- could potentially make an interested team blink...

Kevin Knox

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Most NBA rookies, even the great ones, hit a wall at some point. Kevin Knox got that out of the way early.

Three games into his rookie season with the Knicks, Knox suffered an ankle sprain that sidelined him for two weeks. Upon returning, he struggled in all areas of the game, as he felt his way into a consistent role.

Now, with those early growing pains out of the way, Knox has turned a corner. At the changing of the calendar year, he was named Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month for a December campaign, in which he averaged 17.1 points and six rebounds per game while shooting 38.4 percent from three-point range.

The Knicks may have caught only a couple hours of sleep on their flight to London Tuesday, but they weren't thinking about the hotel beds when they landed at 10:30 a.m. They were ready to hit the London streets.

The team has an agenda for their trip to Europe to face the Wizards on Thursday, and head coach David Fizdale made it a point to include some tourist time for his squad.

"We'll try to do it in a way that doesn't have them on their feet a lot," Fizdale told The Post's Marc Berman. "But they gotta see all of that. They gotta experience it. The whole beauty of this is learning about new culture, new food, new everything. You gotta open up your mind...

Courtney Lee is not bothered with the Knicks 2-13 record over their last 15 games and is taking an optimistic approach to the development of the Knicks' young talent.

"Being in this league for a while you understand that's the best direction to go in, especially having a young core," Lee said in a report from Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News. "And then just to look at the record it's not what anybody wanted it to be right now, so one thing you can do to take a positive out of that is just developing the young guys. If you put yourself first, it's very difficult. But I understand it's for the betterment of the team."

Lee has not played over the last three games. His last appearence was Dec. 27 in the Knicks 112-96 loss at the Milwaukee Bucks where he scored nine points in 23 minutes of action.

The Knicks Tank has been in full effect over the last month as the team has greatly increased its odds to land one of the Top 3 picks in the NBA Draft.  

Since a three-game winning streak that had them at 7-14 on Nov. 25, the Knicks have come crashing back to Earth, going 2-12 as their record has dropped to 9-26.

After their Christmas Day loss to the Bucks -- their fifth-straight -- the Knicks find themselves tied in the loss column with the Suns and Cavaliers (both at 8-26) for the worst record in the NBA. That puts them just a half game back of being in the No. 1 spot for the Draft Lottery...

Knicks coach David Fizdale revealed on Wednesday that SG Tim Hardaway Jr. is dealing with plantar fasciitis, a dreaded chronic heel ailment that has been bothering his right foot.

Hardaway will return to the lineup Wednesday against the 76ers after missing Monday night's loss to the Suns. But Fizdale said the Knicks are going to have to evaluate their leading scorer one day at a time.

"Plantar fasciitis is nagging," Fizdale said, according to Newsday's Steve Popper. "Some days it aches so bad you can't move on it. Other days you can tolerate. He's trying to manage it.

Things to know about Wednesday's game

1) The Knicks made a big comeback in the second half, with rookie Kevin Knox putting them up by one with a thunderous transition dunk.

The critical play of the game, though, came on an inbound following a timeout where Emmanuel Mudiay couldn't find a teammate to get the ball to in a three-point game. It ended the Knicks' chance at a comeback.

After splitting two matchups in late-October, the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets meet on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden coming off vastly different results against two of the Eastern Conference's best teams.

The Nets pulled out a 106-105 overtime win over the Eastern Conference-leading Toronto Raptors on Friday night, snapping an eight-game losing streak, a day after the Knicks dropped a 128-100 decision at Boston.

New York managed just 39.6 percent shooting from the field in the loss as the bench went cold, connecting on just 12 of 36 attempts. Worse, the Knicks' defense was puzzled by the Celtics, who shot better than 53.3 percent from the field and finished with 32 assists.

Tim Hardaway Jr. has enjoyed a breakout season for the Knicks, taking on the scoring load with Kristaps Porzingis recovering from his torn ACL while rounding out his game in other areas.

His improving efficiency and playmaking makes his contract look more and more reasonable, and with a potential regression and monster free agency looming, the Knicks could be inclined to listen to offers for their stud shooting guard. Here are a few directions they could go in if they decide to trade Hardaway...

New York Knicks guard Courtney Lee will make his season debut Saturday when the Milwaukee Bucks visit Madison Square Garden.

Head coach David Fizdale said Lee was "probable" for the matchup with the Bucks after returning to practice just about a week ago. The guard, who is in his 10th year in the league, has missed the first 23 games of the 2018-2019 season due to a persistent neck injury.

"One thing I know is we definitely don't have veterans, so having a veteran in the mix now, especially since we haven't had Lance [Thomas], we just really miss that presence," Fizdale said Friday after practice. "So I've just got to figure out how I'm going to work him into the rotation."
