Stephen A. Smith kicked off today's episode of "First Take" by addressing Phil Jackson's comments during an interview last night, wherein he confirmed that the New York Knicks are engaging in trade talks with teams for Kristaps Porzingis.

During Phil's interview with MSG's Al Trautwig, the Zen Master said,

"We're getting calls. As much as we value Kristaps and what he's done for us, when a guy doesn't show up for an exit meeting, everybody starts speculating on the duration or movability from a club."

"The future, you know, what it brings," Jackson said. "Does it bring us two starters and a draft pick or something that's even beyond that? [That's] something we have to look at as far as going down the road. We know what he is. He's a unicorn, and he's special."

Naturally, Stephen A. Smith was super calm when reflecting on Phil's comments this morning.
