A proposed to deal to send ex-Knick Kristaps Porzingis to the Boston Celtics has fallen apart, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Washington Wizards, Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers were initially working on a three-team deal that would’ve sent the former Knick to Boston and Malcom Brogdon to Los Angeles, according to reports.
The Wizards would’ve receive Marcus Morris, Amir Coffey and the 30th pick in Thursday’s draft from the Clippers, along with Boston’s Danilo Gallinari.
Now with the draft less than 24 hours away, the deal is no more.
Porzingis, the former Knicks’ fourth overall pick in 2015 draft, averaged a career-high in points (23.2) for the Wizards last season. He also recorded 8.4 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.5 blocks in 65 games. The 7-3 Latvian landed in Washington after the Mavericks traded him in exchange for Spencer Dinwiddie and Davis Bertans at the 2022 trade deadline.
The Wizards are looking to retool their roster under new team president Michael Winger. The team recently sent star Bradley Beal to the Phoenix Suns in exchange for Chris Paul, Landry Shamet and draft compensation.
