The New York back pages today feature the same photo of Kristaps Porzingis. And the New York Post's headline questions Phil Jackson's claim the Knicks "know what we're doing."
Ramona Shelburne ESPN Senior Writer
One Knicks insider on the Porzingis situation: "Many of the people now screaming that Kristaps is untradeable are the same ones who were furious when we drafted him. Remember: Phil and our scouts were the only ones to properly recognize his potential. And there's no way that we'd trade him now unless we got someone we're even higher on in return."
Yasiel Puig posed at home plate and watched his fourth-inning drive, irritating New York first baseman Wilmer Flores -- among other Mets.

Yasiel Puig hit a three-run homer, Yasmani Grandal added two solo shots and the streaking Dodgers took over first place in the NL West by battering Mets pitching again for an 8-2 victory Wednesday night.

The Dodgers have clocked 12 home runs in the first three games of the series, already tied for third-most homers the Mets have allowed in a series in franchise history.

The Knicks had dinner with Gonzaga PF/C Zach Collins on Tuesday night, per league sources. Collins, a 7-0, 230-pound freshman, is projected as a top-10 pick in the draft. He hit 67 percent of his 2-point attempts and 47 percent of his threes (though he didn't shoot many) last year at Gonzaga. The 19-year-old averaged 10 points and 6 rebounds in 17 minutes per game. The Knicks have the eighth pick. Phil Jackson has said that the club will likely select a guard or wing but the wildcard here is the Kristaps Porzingis trade talks, of course. It still seems likely that the Knicks end up taking a wing or a guard on Thursday but the Collins meeting is interesting.
ESPN Stats and Information
Kristaps Porzingis is coming off a season in which he averaged more PPG than LaMarcus Aldridge, more blocks per game than DeAndre Jordan, and more made 3's per game than Dirk Nowitzki. Only 6 players have ever averaged more PPG in a season in which they finished with 100 blocks and 100 made 3s. Keep in mind Porzingis is only 21 years old and still has room to grow.
