Porzingis Claims to Have Been Hacked with Clippers’ Tweet

The Tweet that Kristaps Porzingis posted about the Los Angeles Clippers was apparently the result of a hack. Saturday night saw a Tweet published from Porzingis’ account that named the team, and followed by 3 emojis depicting a smiling face. It was deleted almost instantly.

The New York Knicks have been on the receiving end of trade calls on Porzingis’ availability after he missed his exit meeting with the front office. With the player possibly sending out messages about the Clippers, speculation has been fuelled that they were a possible destination for the trade. Representatives for the player deny that this is so.
