Kristaps Porzingis is just focused on the future.
The former Knicks star was introduced as a member of the Dallas Mavericks on Monday, along with Tim Hardaway Jr., Courtney Lee and Trey Burke, but the 7-foot-3 Latvian had no interest in discussing why things went awry in New York that led to the trade.
"The situation is what it is," he said. "I would rather focus on what's ahead of me than looking back.
"There might be a time when I go into more detail about that situation but I just want to focus on my new team, the Dallas Mavericks."
Porzingis was dealt on Thursday hours after he met with team management and reportedly expressed concern with the overall direction of the franchise.
Knicks president Steve Mills said that Porzingis no longer wanted to be a Knick as he was not on board with the team's plan for the future.
Porzingis also posted on social media that Knicks fans deserved better and told the city to "stay woke."
The 23-year-old had not played all season as he continued to rehab from ACL surgery he had last February and was scheduled to be re-evaluated in mid-February.
The Daily News reported Porzingis was "essentially cleared to play" and was concerned what Knicks would do with him amid their efforts to tank.
Yet Porzingis, and Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, said on Monday the plan was to have Porzingis sit out the remainder of the season.
"Whatever the plan was in the previous organization isn't really relevant at this point in time," Cuban said. "We have our doctors working with his team and right now the 100 percent plan is for him not to play. What was in place prior really isn't really relevant at this point in time."
Porzingis is a restricted free agent at the end of the season but Cuban helped the forward answer a question about signing long-term with the Mavericks.

"Yeah, he does," Cuban interjected.
Porzingis added, "We're on the same page."
Cuban got the last word in, though.
"Our goal is to keep him here for the next 20 years."
