David Fizdale took the first steps for the New York Knicks to rebuild their relationship with Kristaps Porzingis by meeting with his brother on Friday.

Janis Porzingis also serves as the agent for Kristaps Porzingis.

Porzingis didn't attend as he remains in Madrid rehabilitating his torn ACL.

Fizdale is still hoping to meet face-to-face with Kristaps in Latvia at some point this summer. 

Phil Jackson, Jeff Hornacek, Steve Mills and Scott Perry never traveled to the home country of Porzingis.
