Porzingis began his career as a New York Knick, garnering fame after Knicks fans were initially disappointed with his drafting. He is a unique 7-footer with long-range shooting ability and surprisingly nimble footwork on the court. He has been playing with the Mavericks for two seasons before today’s trade.
Dinwiddie has been an under-the-radar huge contributor to the Washington Wizards. He has averaged 12.6 points per game with the Wizards, along with 5.8 rebounds per game. From 2016 until last year, he was a Nets mainstay.
