Kristaps Porzingis may be ticked off with Knicks management, but his camp says the cryptic Clippers tweet that was shared from his account Saturday night was not of his own doing. A representative for Porzingis told ESPN Sunday that the Latvian forward was sound asleep when his Twitter account posted “LA Clippers” with three smiling emoji faces, and that he was apparetly the victim of a hack. After blowing off his exit interview with Knicks president Phil Jackson last month, Porzingis fueled reports that he has become frustrated with the team’s dysfunction. Jackson said he’d be open to hear trade offers for the 21-year-old following the no-show. A day before Porzingis’ Clippers tweet, which was immediately deleted, ESPN reported that multiple teams contacted the Knicks about his availability in a deal.
