The Dallas Mavericks and the New York Knicks have agreed to terms on a trade centered on All-Star Kristaps Porzingis, according to ESPN’s Tim McMahon.

The Knicks will receiver Dennis Smith Jr., Wesley Matthews, and DeAndre Jordan in exchange for Porzingis, Trey Burker, Courtney Lee, and Tim Hardaway Jr..

Dallas is working to acquire a 1st round pick to include in the deal, according to ESPN.

The Mavs are hoping to re-sign Porzingis, who is scheduled to become a restricted free agent this summer, and are confident that both Dirk Nowitzki and Luka Doncic can help convince him to sign.

Porzingis has been out for close to a year with an ACL injury and an evaluation in January revealed that his knee is healing well.

Porzingis had recently met with the Knicks organization to express his frustration with the team’s losing and past dysfunction, while also expressing his uncertainty that they can achieve sustainable success.

Dallas Mavericks’ big man Kristaps Porzingis is set to finally return to the court after nearly a two-year layoff due to injury, and he has some big goals in mind when he dons a Mavericks uniform for the very first time since his trade from the New York Knicks.

In a post on his Instagram account, Porzingis asked his followers to ask him anything, and responded to one fan in particular, who asked if he would rather be All-NBA Third Team or the All-Defensive team.

Porzingis simply stated: “All Defensive! DPOY is a goal of mine!!”

Porzingis tore his ACL during the 2017-2018 season, while he was still playing with the Knicks, so it will be interesting to see what kind form Porzingis takes the court.

Per the report, Cuban would “absolutely” love to have Nowitzki on board as part-owner of the team.

“I’ll have the convo with Dirk in the future. There is a lot of things involved to make it all work. But it would be awesome,” Cuban said in an interview with Fisher.
