Knicks rookie Kristaps Porzingis has been impressive thus far in 2015/16 and has taken New York by storm. The 20-year-old is averaging 13.7 points and 9.1 rebounds in 26.9 minutes per night over his first 15 contests. While Porzingis’ early season production has turned some heads around the league, questions still remain about what the Latvian’s long-term position will be. He has primarily played power forward for the team thus far, and his ability to hit outside shots certainly makes him valuable as a stretch-four. But New York may look to use Porzingis as a center down the line, though he’ll almost assuredly need to add some bulk onto his 240-pound frame to be effective in the pivot full-time.
This brings me to today’s topic: What position do you think Kristaps Porzingis is best suited for going forward in his career?
Should the Knicks continue to develop Porzingis as a power forward, despite the presence of Carmelo Anthony, who may need to slide over to the four spot as he ages? Or should the Knicks move Porzingis to center, where his athleticism would be an asset but his slender frame could make him a liability on defense?
