Phil Jackson Is Reportedly Considering Trading Kristaps Porzingis

Could the Knicks get rid of Porzingis?

The NBA Draft is just two days away, and the week leading up to it has been crazy. Both Chicago Bulls star Jimmy Butler and Indiana Pacers stud Paul George were rumored to be trade pieces heading into draft week.

In a surprising move, the Cleveland Cavaliers got rid of general manager David Griffin to increase the drama leading into Thursday night's draft.

Now, another NBA star could be on the move.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Phil Jackson is reportedly not ruling out the chance to deal Kristaps Porzingis.

That's right, the Unicorn could be gone before the 2017-18 season.

Jackson reportedly likes former Arizona star Lauri Markkanen, if he decides to trade away what many thought would be the future of the New York Knicks.

We're sure Knicks fans won't be happy with the news, and the job Jackson has done this far. The NBA Draft is scheduled for Thursday, June 22.
