During his introductory press conference with the Dallas Mavericks, Kristaps Porzingis was asked whether he plans to sign a long-term deal with the franchise in restricted free agency.

"The city deserves better than that", Porzingis wrote.

Hide your eyes, Knicks fans.

On Sunday morning, Porzingis took to Instagram to share a cryptic message for Knicks fans, who will see their team back in action on Tuesday against the Pistons (7:30 p.m. ET - Watch on FuboTV with NBA League Pass add-on). Still, the trade seemingly came out of nowhere after a meeting between Knicks brass and Porzingis and his agent on Thursday.

Porzingis refused to address his departure from NY or rumors he was offered first to the New Orleans Pelicans for Anthony Davis.

"We have a great relationship", Porzingis said of Doncic.

By clearing their books of the money owed to Tim Hardaway Jr. and Courtney Lee - who were both moved to Dallas in the Porzingis trade - ESPN's Bobby Marks projects the Knicks to have a league-high $71 million in salary-cap space this summer. The Madison Square Garden crowd has started "We want Kanter" chants several times in recent home games.

The Latvian will have his introductory news conference in Dallas on Monday but issued a short statement to his former followers in NY on Instagram.

He circled back to playing with Doncic and returning Dallas to playoff prominence.

The 2017 ninth overall pick averaged 12.9 points per contest on 44 percent shooting in 32 games with the Mavs this season.
