The Dallas Mavericks acquired Kristaps Porziņģis in a blockbuster deal on Thursday. One day later, the team has announced that he may not play this season.

Porziņģis did not play in a single game with the Knicks before the trade. He is rehabbing a torn ACL that he suffered during the 2018-19 season.

He’ll make a restricted free agent this summer. The Mavericks are going to re-sign him.

Porziņģis has a $4.48 million qualifying offer for next season. He did not reach the starter criteria of $7.5 million.

The 23-year-old Porziņģis, who is from Liepaja, Latvia, will make a dynamic duo with Luka Dončić for years to come. These two will potentially remind Mavericks fans of another dynamic duo of Steve Nash and Dirk Nowitzki.

Porziņģis last played in 48 games during the 2017-18 season. He averaged a career-high 22.7 points per game with 6.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.8 steals, and 2.4 blocks per contest.

In his three-year NBA career, he has made 186 appearances with 185 starts. He is averaging 17.8 points, 7.1 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.7 steals, and 2.0 blocks per game.
