Kristaps Porzingis said that he feels "probably better than I ever had in my life" and he will have no limitations entering training camp, almost 20 months after he tore the ACL.
KP bulked up to a personal-high 242 pounds over the summer, while his teammates have been raving about his explosiveness in recent pickup games. Porzingis has been medically cleared for full basketball activities for several months now. He practiced with the Mavs late last season, but him and the team mutually agreed that it was in his best interests long term to continue prioritizing strength and conditioning work instead of playing in the final 10 or 15 games of the season. The Latvian big is a strong consideration in the early rounds of the draft this year and only the potential of load management could hurt his value as the season progresses.
