Greenie c'mon now, it's Kristaps Porzingis. He's going to get paid. We're not dealing with a Jeremy Lin here, we're talking about the face of the franchise. He's going to get paid, if not the Knicks then somebody else but he is going to get paid and everybody knows it.
He’s 7’3’’ coming off a knee injury. If he can’t play or he comes back looking worse his value goes down.
Boogie just took what?
Cousins is like 28 years old and had built a somewhat bad rep around the league for his character issues. There are plenty of teams that didn't want him even when he was healthy. Regardless of that though the Pelicans still offered him 40 million for 2 years after his injury and he declined.
Porzingis is 22 years old and even if he can't play or plays worse he's still going to get paid. Look at Zach Lavine, he still got his 80 million despite only playing in like 20 games and playing worse than his previous season in Minnesota.
