Starting his professional basketball journey in 2015, Porzingis was selected as the 4th overall pick by the New York Knicks with whom he signed a beginner's 4-year contract worth $18,650,094. A 2019 shift to Dallas Mavericks witnessed the sealing of his rich 5-year agreement worth $158,253,000.

The current season at the Boston Celtics is a testament to Porzingis's indelible impact. He, by scoring, defending, and rebounding, has significantly contributed to the team's on-field triumphs. His worth was also evident during the NBA finals where his 20-point contribution, especially in the first game, propelled the Celtics to a promising series start.

At present, Porzingis's participation in the 5th game of the NBA Finals against the Dallas Mavericks is uncertain due to an uncommon leg injury he has been grappling with. Though recovery efforts are ongoing, optimism about his game appearance is scant. 


Coach Joe Mazzulla of the Celtics, while providing limited details about Porzingis's status, acknowledged the player's dedicated efforts to make himself available for the game, adding that the team plans to ascertain the protection of Porzingis's best interests, both as an individual and a player.
