The Knicks and Kristaps Porzingis will not agree on a contract extension before Monday's deadline.
This was always going to be a tough sell, as while the Knicks view KP as their franchise player, he's going to sit out a big chunk of this season. It's not like they wouldn't match any offer he receives next summer, so for now the Knicks will take this flexibility and try to do some good with it. The murkiness surrounding Porzingis' recovery makes him just about impossible to draft in any format without an IR spot, so he's only a luxury stash.
