New York Knicks rookie sensation Kristaps Porzingis recently revealed that NCAA Division II squads recruited him the strangest way.

There’s a big reason New York Knicks rookie sensation Kristaps Porzingis didn’t travel overseas and play NCAA basketball as a freshman last season.

He wasn’t heavily recruited.

So, the tall and lanky Latvian stayed in Europe to play out the year post high-school prior to his NBA Draft eligibility.

However, KP did reveal recently that a few Division II schools came knocking in a very interesting way, via Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News:

“It was funny,” Porzingis told Bondy. “I received like two or three offers. It was a coach [reaching out to me], writing, ‘I want you play for us, we’re Division II.'”

Obviously, Porzingis played for Baloncesto Sevilla of Liga ACB in Spain prior to becoming the No. 4 pick in last year’s NBA Draft.
