This week marks nearly a year since Porzingis tore his ACL.
Now after years of making bad deals and wasting millions on buyouts; the Knicks have part ways with Porzingis who had become exhausted of losing and witnessing what he believed to be the mistreatment of his teammate Enes Kanter.
Latvian big man Porzingis, the number four pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, hasn't played since undergoing surgery to fix a torn left knee ligament last February.
Porzingis said sitting out this season has always been the plan, and he will remain patient despite saying he feels "bouncy" and is excited to get back on the court as soon as possible. "We're going to make the right decision".
Porzingis had dinner with J.J. Barea after arriving in Dallas, and the Mavericks guard who is out for the season with a torn Achilles tendon said Porzingis had plenty of questions about the 2011 title run led by Nowitzki and sparked in the NBA Finals by Barea.
"I can answer that for you", Cuban said.

In the 1990s, the famous Hubble Deep Field image led NASA to believe there were about 200 billion galaxies in the universe. Granted, galaxies are anything but "small", but compared to our absolute unit of a galaxy , Bedin 1 is a featherweight.
The New York Knicks are planning for something big this summer. We just know each other from playing against each other for a long time.
"Every relationship takes time to build", Porzingis said.
Hours later, NY traded Porzingis to the Mavericks in a deal that brought back two future first-round picks, Dennis Smith Jr. and two veterans on expiring contracts in Wesley Matthews and DeAndre Jordan.
By unloading Hardaway Jr.'s and Lee's expensive contracts and likely buying out Jordan and Matthews, the Knicks will have the cap space to pursue Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant this summer. "Because after this trade and everything the fans still want me to go out there and play". "I would rather just focus on what's ahead of me than looking back". The 40-year-old forward is in his 21st year with Dallas.
"Yeah, I think it's going to have to be a part of my rehab", Porzingis said.
