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.
