Porzingis was dealt from the New York Knicks to the Dallas Mavericks in the middle of this season.

On Sunday morning, a video leaked in which Porzingis appeared to have blood on his face. A Facebook video claims that the words he is saying to them (in his native language) are about threatening to "deport European Russians to Siberia". ESPN reports that several Russians jumped Porzingis, who fought back before club security broke up the scuffle. That is when the altercation ensued. Hughes is a radio personality for 105.3 The Fan in Dallas.

"It is our understanding that Kristaps was jumped and assaulted outside of a club in Latvia".

This is a developing story and we will update it when more information becomes available.

Multiple sources do not believe the motivation of the assault stemmed from his being traded from the Knicks, as a TMZ report stated.

Porzingis, who missed all of this past National Basketball Association season with a knee injury, was drafted by the New York Knicks with the 4th overall pick in the 2015 draft. It would soon be revealed that Porzingis was accused of sexual assault by a NY woman who claimed the player raped her in 2018.

Obviously, this is a bad look for the 7-foot-3 "Unicorn", who has not played in an National Basketball Association game since February 2018 when he torn his ACL. "The New York Knicks will not have any further involvement on Kristaps' behalf".

A Porzingis representative has not responded to various media requests at this time.
