Knicks head coach David Fizdale took the first step toward building — and in many ways repairing — a relationship with Kristaps Porzingis by meeting with the All-Star forward’s agent Janis Porzingis, the Daily News has learned.

According to a Knicks source, Fizdale and Janis, Kristaps’ older brother, met in Manhattan on Friday after Fizdale returned from the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago.

The meeting was said to be productive and it is believed that Fizdale and Porzingis discussed Fizdale’s infamous falling out with Marc Gasol, which led to Fizdale being fired as Memphis Grizzlies head coach last November.
