Knicks president Steve Mills Says Kristaps Porzingis Not Unhappy

There had been some speculation that New York Knicks superstar Kristaps Porzingis may have been unhappy about not signing a rookie scale contract extension with the team this offseason, but team president Steve Mills is shooting down any rumors of unhappiness.

“We believe it was the smart move, but primarily because over the summer, GM Scott [Perry] and I sat down with KP’s brother [Janis Porzingis] and talked about the different options that we have in front of us as it related to his extension” Mills said, during an appearance on The Michael Kay Show,via Ian Begley of ESPN.com.

“We were clear that the best option to make the Knicks a better team long term and have a better group of guys that KP can grow with long term was to not do the extension at this point. We think it ended up in a situation that’s best for the long-term view of the Knicks which ultimately will be the best in the long term view for KP because he’ll have a better team that he’ll be part of.

“We’ve been very straightforward in our communication with KP’s brother, who is his agent. KP has a long history with us. One thing about my relationship with KP is that when he is unhappy about something or disappointed about something he’s been very forthright in coming to me and saying, ‘Steve you know what? I’m not happy about this.’ And throughout this whole process he’s been very excited about David Fizdale as the coach, he’s been very excited about the players, the young players that we have. So I think we’re in a good place.”
