New York is asking for a lot in return for their star young big man.
The New York Knicks and the Boston Celtics remain actively engaged on a potential Kristaps Porzingis trade, but Phil Jackson’s asking price is pretty high.
According to Knicks’ insider Frank Isola, it’s very high.
Here’s reportedly what New York is asking for right now:
According to a Knicks source, Jackson is asking for the third overall pick in Thursday’s draft as well as next year’s Brooklyn pick along with Jaylen Brown and Jae Crowder. This version of the deal would not include Boston taking on Joakim Noah’s contract.
The Celtics feel the price is far too high but they are open to tweaking the deal to include just one draft pick, either this year’s No. 3 or next year’s Brooklyn pick.
The NBA Draft starts at 7 p.m. E.T. on ESPN.
