Shaq: Knicks Should ‘Keep Porzingis And Trade Everybody Else’ (VIDEO)
Shaquille O’Neal has the solution for Phil Jackson and his woes with the current squad: Porzingis stays, dump everybody else.
Along with other moves, rumors went rampant about the New York Knicks seeking trade partners to move Porzingis, as nobody in the organization can get on the same page. The roster is in shambles and the front office is in shambles.
TMZ recently caught up with Shaq and he believes that would be a terrible move for the Knicks. He offered up another suggestion instead.
“Keep Porzingis and trade everybody else around him,” he told TMZ Sports. “Just try to build around him. This kid has a bright future. He’s working out all summer. … He’s getting stronger, he’s definitely in the weight room. He’s never that guy who you can give up.”
“If you trade him to the right team. Like for example, if you trade him to Cleveland …,” O’Neal said with a whistle.
Porzingis put up 18.1 points, 7.2 rebounds, two blocks, and 1.5 assists in his sophomore campaign.
