Kristaps Porzingis: That Clippers tweet is mystery to me, too

Adjust Comment Print

After Porzingis skipped his postseason exit interview with the Knicks last month, ESPN reported several teams had reached out to the Knicks to inquire about his availability.

Some connecting the dots from Porzingis' decision to skip the meeting and teams calling the Knicks about potential trades surmised that the Clippers tweet was a reference to a possible trade destination.

The Knicks have lost a total of 101 games in Porzingis' first two seasons in the National Basketball Association.

It's well known Carmelo Anthony would waive his no-trade clause to join the Clippers. The 7-foot-3 power forward said there was confusion from "top to bottom" in the organisation and blamed the coaching staff for most of the woes.

Earnings per share of US$2.10 were ahead of market expectations of US$2.02 and were up 10.5% from US$1.90 a share the year before. Apple has benefited from this as much as anyone in the tech sector. "There's a huge opportunity for Apple there", he said.

After returning to his home country of Latvia, which he will represent this summer at the world championships, Porzingis refused to comment to local reporters about the end of the Knicks season, noting, "I haven't made any contact with the Knicks", ESPN reports.

Both Porzingis and Jackson still have not spoken while the Knicks president admitted that anyone on the roster could be traded.

The toxic atmosphere pervading the Knicks has led some to speculate whether Porzingis is already thinking about playing elsewhere as he develops in his career. The source said Porzingis isn't the only person who has permission to tweet onto his account. It does not, however, mean that New York's front office is considering trading their prized young player. "I focus on my job and what I can do now".

For the time being, Jackson appears to have dismissed the idea of trading his future franchise player.
