Steve Mills on Kristaps Porzingis' decision to skip exit meetings with ex team president Phil Jackson and Mills last April due to the drama and dysfunction surrounding the team: "We've been in touch with Kristaps. I've spoken to him when we made the changes and he's very excited about where we're going as I outlined how I saw this team moving forward.... I'm very confident that we will make him feel good about being a Knick and make him feel good about the environment here."
