Boston Celtics Rumor: Phil Jackson and the New York Knicks Asking For The Moon For Kristaps Porzingis
In the least shocking update of the off-season, the New York Knicks are asking for an insane amount in return for star forward Kristaps Porzingis according to reports.
Frank Isola of the New York Daily News reported the current asking price for the Celtics is the No. 3 overall pick this year, the Brooklyn Nets’ first round pick in 2018, and forwards Jae Crowder and Jaylen Brown.
The latest on what Boston has offered is the No.3 pick, a player (ie. Jae Crowder), and a lottery pick they have yet to acquire.
It now seems apparent that Celtics team President Danny Ainge very much wants Porzingis. But the Knicks asking price is something no sane GM would answer. For any deal to occur the Knicks will need to come down considerably.
The current asking price leads me to believe the Knicks are not serious about trading Porzingis.
