New Knicks coach heading to Latvia to meet with Porzingis

Kristaps Porzingis

David Fizdale is trying to start his tenure as New York Knicks head coach on the right note.

Fizdale said during an ESPN broadcast that he and his wife are set to visit with Kristaps Porzingis in Latvia in two weeks.

Porzingis is recovering from surgery to repair a torn ACL and might not be ready for action until midway through next season. Despite that, the 22-year-old versatile big man is viewed as the cornerstone of the team. He has improved each season since being drafted in 2015 and averaged 22.7 points and 6.6 rebounds per game last season. The 7-foot-3 big man also drained an impressive 1.9 three-pointers per game.

The two reportedly had a “great conversation” after Fizdale was hired as the team’s new head coach, although Fiz was recently roasted for an odd suggestion he made.
