Jackson and Knicks consider trading Kristaps Porzingis

This comes after Porzingis skipped his exit meeting with team president Phil Jackson because of his frustration with the drama and instability around the team.

The Knicks are reportedly open to trading star forward Kristaps Porzingis, and the Celtics are one of the few teams in the league with the assets to acquire him.

And the C's also are a team linked to Porzingis trade rumors.

Porzingis remains determined to play for the Knicks and see his tenure through to success, sources said, but it has become clearer that Jackson has become increasingly intrigued with testing the trade market for Porzingis.

Porzingis, 21, is owed just $10.2 million over the next two years, per terms of his contract. According to multiple reports, Porzingis has not pleased with the way the Knicks are being run.

The NBA Draft is in two days, and if the Knicks are thinking about moving their co-franchise players, that's something you kind of want done BEFORE you add a potential player of the future. Can't blame Phil Jackson and the New York Knicks for trying I guess.

"The Boston Celtics are amongst the teams interested in trading for Kristaps Porzingis".

"Despite how the Knicks are treating their players, Kris wants to stay in NY".

However, it is a good barometer of what is important to sports fans in the city.

Citing a Knicks source, Zagsblog reports that the Sixers, Phoenix Suns and San Antonio Spurs reached out about the availability of the 7-foot-3 Latvian who averaged 18.1 points and 7.2 rebounds per game last season.

Jackson raised eyebrows in 2015 by drafting Porzingis with the Knicks' No. 4 overall pick.
