Phil Jackson hasn't ruled out trading Kristaps Porzingis, reports say”

The wild 2017 NBA offseason is in full effect and the NBA Draft hasn't even started yet.

The New York Knicks made their National Basketball Association rumor season debut in a blaze of glory on Tuesday when reports emerged from the Big Apple that Phil Jackson was not ruling out trading Kristaps Porzingis when the young star's name came up in conversations with other teams.

At the same time, there will be strict enforcement of authorized exemptions that allow travel between the USA and Cuba . Foreign hoteliers will continue to open properties to meet the increasing demand for luxury hotels.

ESPN confirmed the report, adding that the Knicks have received numerous calls in recent days from teams interested in making a deal for Porzingis. Porzingis' brother and agent, Janis Porzingis, told ESPN's Ian Begley on Tuesday that Kristaps wants to remain in NY. A talk radio host from Phoenix, John Gambadoro, said that the Knicks wanted Devin Booker and the No. 4 overall pick in exchange for Kristaps Porzingis. According to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski, Jackson "isn't ruling out" a potential trade of Kristaps Porzingis.

Porzingis is the Knicks best player by a large margin and is only 21.

President Trump said Wednesday in a press briefing that the alleged shooter, identified in multiple reports as James T. Matt Mika , director of government relations for Tyson Foods , is one of several injured by an IL gunman.

Through two seasons, Porzingis has averaged 19 points and 8.6 rebounds per game.

"Despite how the Knicks are treating their players, Kris wants to stay in NY". In theory, NY could acquire two players from a pool of De'Aaron Fox, Jonathan Isaac, Josh Jackson, Lauri Markkanen, Donovan Mitchell, Malik Monk, Frank Ntilikina, and Jayson Tatum. With fans from other franchises licking their chops at the idea of their team potentially dealing for Porzingis, New Yorkers quickly got out their pitchforks and prepared to run Phil Jackson out of town. But he made it clear Porzingis will play through his contract and explore free agency if traded.
