Dallas Mavericks big man Kristaps Porzingis is set to debut with the team. Here is a peek at his best and worst-case scenario for this season.

Dallas Mavericks fans are ready to watch Kristaps Porzingis ball. His long-anticipated debut is near following months of “did the Dallas Mavericks win the trade?” debates that spewed to the point of nausea. Once the trade materialized, the expectations of the young duo of Luka Doncic and Porzingis seemingly exploded in the minds of Mavs supporters.

The forward requested a trade out of New York. The fan base was forced to choose between the player and the franchise. He left the Knicks as a 2018 All-Star while rehabbing a torn ACL.

Porzingis has a shot to change the narrative in Dallas. He can forget the past now and the labels fans saddled him with in New York. KP will be competing for a playoff spot for the first time in his NBA career.

Also. Best and worst case for Luka Doncic this season

The Unicorn had an unbelievable season the last time he was healthy. He grew into the rim protecting stretch four everyone dreamed of when putting him on their draft boards.

Although the talent of Porzingis is promising, the red flag warning label of the constant injuries is flaring like a wildfire. If Dallas ends up losing multiple draft picks for not, the future with Doncic doesn’t look as bright. However, the talented training staff of the Dallas Mavericks deserves mention in keeping Porzingis on the court.

The former All-Star is healthy. Here are the best and worst-case scenario for Kristaps Porzingis in the 2019-2020 season.
