David Fizdale will visit Kristaps Porzingis in Latvia about a week after Summer League ends and will watch tape with him there. The coach has already created a cache of plays for Porzingis to watch, broken down and dissected, pulling from how Jeff Hornacek used him in New York to plays of how Fizdale has used players in Memphis, all trying to show how Fizdale imagines Porzingis will play with the Knicks when he returns from his torn ACL. Fizdale thinks that film sessions will account for a good amount of his time there when he visits.
“He’s going to get tired of me,” he said. “But about two of those days over there we’re going to watch film in Latvia because I got so much stuff I’ve broken down and pulled.”
