Amidst a whirlwind of news surrounding Anthony Davis, the New York Knicks have stolen the spotlight – for the moment – with their latest transaction. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski recently reported that the Knicks and Dallas Mavericks have agreed to a deal that will send Kristaps Porzingis, Courtney Lee, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Trey Burke to the lone star state in exchange for Wesley Matthews, Dennis Smith Jr. and DeAndre Jordan. In addition, the Mavericks are also hoping to land a first-round pick from NY.

According to ESPN, Porzingis and the Knicks haven’t been on the same page as of late with the 7’ 3” scorer worrying about the organization’s future and his role within it. NBA on ESPN’s Bobby Marks also shared an interesting take on the transaction:

“The Knicks could be starting at $74.6M USD in projected cap space for next season. That would be good enough for 2 max slots.”

With the Knicks gazing down a valley of financial freedom, a player like Kevin Durant comes into play for the team’s front office along with many other household names. Stay tuned for developing news about this move and let us know your thoughts on the Knicks/Mavericks trade.

In other news, Meek Mill and J. Cole have been selected to perform at this year’s All-Star weekend.
