Kristaps Porziņģis (Latvian pronunciation: ; born 2 August 1995) is a Latvian professional basketball player for the Dallas Mavericks of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He holds the distinction of being the tallest active player in the NBA, standing at 7 ft 3 in (2.21 m) tall, and plays both the power forward and center positions.

Born in Liepāja, Porziņģis began his professional career with EuroLeague team Sevilla in 2011. Porziņģis quickly rose through the team's youth ranks and became the figurehead of the senior team by 2013. He subsequently won the EuroCup Basketball Rising Star award in 2015, where, at age 18, he became the youngest ever recipient of the award. The following summer, he declared for the NBA draft, where he was selected fourth overall by the New York Knicks.

In New York, Porziņģis shone as the team's star, but after disagreements with the front office, was traded to Dallas in 2019.
