Kristaps Porzingis said he "of course" wants to play for the Knicks next season, despite recent friction between himself and the team. "I love New York. I love New York," said Porzingis, who recently skipped his exit interview with Phil Jackson due to the "drama" surrounding the team. He plans to play for the Latvian national team this summer, contrary to the Knicks' desire, but at the end of the day he's still under a guaranteed deal until hitting restricted free agency in 2018.

Kristaps Porzingis is planning a long trip back to Latvia that may not include a return to New York until closer to the start of training camp, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical. President Phil Jackson threw Carmelo Anthony under the bus and it would appear Porzingis is not happy about it. According to ESPN, KP wasn't at exit interviews because of "drama" surrounding the franchise. The Knicks continue to make news during the postseason despite not being in the playoffs.

Kristaps Porzingis skipped exit meetings on Friday "due to frustration over dysfunction, drama" surrounding the Knicks, according to ESPN's Ian Begley. Oh boy. President Phil Jackson said Carmelo Anthony would be "better off somewhere else" and several other comments earlier today, so apparently Porzingis wasn't a fan. Porzingis also favorited Melo's "REALLY" post following Jackson's comments. It turns out publicly taking shots at your franchise player isn't the best way to make other players feel good about the front office. The Knicks are a disaster right now. How's it goink?

Kristaps Porzingis will experiment with boxing as a training method this offseason. "I’ll be doing a little bit of something I haven’t done before that’s not attached to basketball maybe that will help my game,’’ Porzingis said. "I’ll experiment a bit over the summer.’’ He said the top priority is to hit the weight room, so the Knicks will be hoping for a more muscular unicorn next season. He could have a major third-year breakout.

Coach Jeff Hornacek said that he does not expect Kristaps Porzingis (back) to play in the Knicks season finale Wednesday vs. Philadelphia. Porzingis has downplayed the severity of the injury, but the Knicks are chasing ping pong balls, not wins. If KP is unable to play, Maurice Ndour would likely draw another start. Willy Hernangomez and Kyle O'Quinn would see additional minutes as well.

Kristaps Porzingis (back) will not play again on Sunday vs. the Raptors. His back issue isn't considered serious and he said that he would like to keep playing, but added that it wouldn't be "smart" to "force it" with nothing left to play for. His last chance to play will be on Wednesday vs. the 76ers, but his owners shouldn't be expecting him to go. We'll get another long look at Maurice Ndour this afternoon and Willy Hernangomez has a great opportunity to produce.
