Kristaps Porzingis is a solid big man who hasn’t had the best playoffs this season. Still, he’s a capable player: it doesn’t often happen that a 7’3 player can shoot the ball like Porzingis, and there is some potential for him to have a bounceback year next season.
It seems like the name of Kristaps Porzingis has appeared on many potential trades. Chris Mannix came up with the idea of Kristaps Porzingis transferring to Kemba Walker, who was recently traded from the Boston Celtics to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Chris Mannix shared the opinion of a manager who stated that trading seems “inevitable” for the next season.
It seems like Kristaps Porzingis could potentially flourish with the Oklahoma City Thunder as he would be able to provide consistent touches that would help his development as a player. At the same time, the Dallas Mavericks urgently needed another offensive threat on the perimeter alongside Luka Doncic in the first round, and Kemba Walker was able to take care of that. This swap seems like a win-win situation, but it remains to be seen whether it actually takes place.
