"The Knicks have gotten several calls from teams interested in trading for Kristaps Porzingis in recent days, per ESPN sources. Porzingis' brother, Janis, said that Porzingis loves New York and wants to win here. He reiterates that his brother will play out his contract and explore free agency if traded."

So where could Kristaps be traded? There's no doubt that many teams will be eager to acquire his services, but what will they be willing to give up in return?
