NBA Draft: Trading the No. 1 pick has garnered mixed results

Phil Jackson is currently Public Enemy No. 1 in New York when it comes to sports.

Reports on Tuesday say the Knicks President of Basketball Operations is listening to trade offers for Kristaps Porzingis.

The 7-foot-3 Latvian was drafted fourth overall by Jackson in the 2015 Draft. He quickly became a fan favorite and at just 21 years old, was thought to be the face of the franchise for the next several years.

Now Jackson, who's entire Knicks tenure has been a complete and utter disaster, may ship Porzingis out of the Big Apple. As you can imagine, Knicks fans are NOT happy.
