It’s not a surprising conclusion to this situation. Although, it doesn’t mean that the 21-year-old isn’t still upset with the team over the drama regarding the Carmelo Anthony-Phil Jackson situation.
Porzingis memorably skipped his exit meeting with Jackson and general manager Steve Mills and hasn’t spoken to anyone associated with the team since.
The tweet was jarring because the Clippers have been a rumored destination for Anthony since Jackson started his crusade to get the superstar scorer out of New York.
