Yesterday, a report surfaced that the Knicks were possibly interested in moving Kristaps Porzingis. Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal thinks it’s a bad idea. When asked by TMZ Sports should the Knicks trade Porzingis, Shaq had this to say:
“I’d say no. You keep Porzingis, and trade everybody else around him, and try to build around him. This kid has a bright future. He’s working out all summer,” Shaq said. “I know the guy he’s working out with Carlton Colker, A guy I used to workout with. A guy that helped me win championships. So, he’s getting stronger. He’s definitely in the weight room. He’s not the type of guy that you give up.”
I’m with Shaq. You can’t trade a 21-year old with that size and skill. However, these are the Knicks we’re talking about!
