Mark Cuban is not happy with Christaps Porzings’ trade reports.
The owner of Mavericks told the Dallas Morning News that the bleacher report story claiming Mavericks “created a peaceful trading market” for Porzings was “not accurate.”
“They’re definitely sniffing around,” the NBA’s assistant general manager told Bleacher Report. “They’re taking the temperature, because they know that at some point it’s coming this way.”
The BR report notes that the Mavericks prefer to combine the former Knicks All-Star with a big man of quality like Cleveland Cavaliers Center Andre Drummond. SNY has reported that Mavericks has reached out to Special Warriors for a possible deal.
The 25-year-old Porzings, who signed a five-year extension of 15 158 million in 2019, averaged 20.5 points and 8.2 rebounds while shooting 35.2 percent from a 3-point range in 17 games after returning from surgery in January with a lateral meniscus injury to his right knee.
A Western conference executive told the Bleacher Report that he “looked like a scarecrow” as he struggled at the defensive end this season, adding “I’m not sure anyone can protect anyone.”
Cubans were particularly concerned by the remarks.
“And BTW, we’re not happy that a ‘Western Conference Executive’ has erupted on one of our players,” he texted the Dallas Morning News.
“There is no trade debate. I think they used it as a way to put out what KP thinks. “
