In a late March interview with a Latvian sports magazine, Kristaps Porzingis said he wanted to spend the rest of his career with the New York Knicks — but he provided an important caveat.

«Absolutely, I want to stay here all my career. You never know what will happen. At the end of the day the thing I want most of all is winning. When the time comes, I should seriously start to think about it. Right now I just try to do my best,»

Porzingis, 21, told Sporta Avize, according to a translation provided by the magazine.

Porzingis was then asked by the magazine if he would stay in New York rather than looking to sign with another team as a free agent if that club provided a better chance to win.

«Possible,» he said. «Time will show.»
