NBA.com staff report

When free agency opens on June 30, the Mavericks plan on offering Kristaps Porzingis a five-year, $158 million max deal, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.

According to Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix, Porzingis seemed to forge a solid relationship with rookie Luka Doncic last season.

The 23-year-old Porzingis was acquired by Dallas in a blockbuster deal with the New York Knicks before the trading deadline but hasn’t played for the club. He missed the 2018-19 season after tearing a ligament in his left knee in what turned out to be his final game for the Knicks in February 2018.
