Phil Jackson may deal Kristaps Porzingis, and New Yorkers are beyond furious.
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.
Wondering if Dolan can unleash Oakley on Phil Jackson for even thinking about trading Porzingis.— Rich Villodas (@richvillodas) June 20, 2017
