Derrick Rose says he’ll prioritize winning over money in free agency this summer. “Not even thinking money. I’ve got more than enough money saved. If I stopped playing basketball now, I’ll be all right,” Rose told reporters in Utah on Wednesday night. “I want to win. I want to be happy and feel at peace with myself wherever I’m at. But being at the negotiating table, you never know. I’m not going to negotiate with people where money is the No. 1 thing I’m asking for. I want to win.”

Storyline: Derrick Rose Free Agency
“This will be the first time I’ll be a free agent. I don’t know how that process goes,” Rose added. “After the season, me, my agent, my brothers, family will have to talk about it. Of course I want to be here, just being in this environment, being in New York, being at the Garden every other night — it’s a blessing. But, again, I have to really talk it over with my agent and my brothers.”

“Obviously if we go into it like we did this year — no,” Hornacek told reporters in Utah when asked if the Rose-Anthony-Porzingis trio can be a playoff team. “If we turn around and have a different way we start, go right at however we’re going to run it next year, if it’s full triangle, it’s possible. You never know how these things will fit. Maybe a second year is helpful for us.”

In what could’ve been a dig at the Knicks’ Big 3 of Carmelo Anthony, Porzingis and Derrick Rose, Hornacek feels the team’s downfall partly stemmed from not being unselfish enough on the offensive end, settling for “good shots’’ but not “great shots’’ as elite squads do. “You see teams — open guys always end up with the ball,’’ Hornacek said at Monday’s morning shootaround before the Knicks faced the Clippers at Staples Center. “Here we do it in spurts. Then we have spurts where it sticks. One guy will take a shot that maybe he can move it on for a better shot. That’s probably the biggest key is we get the good shots. We don’t get the great shots. If we make one extra, we’ll get a great shot. You see the good teams out there, they pass it up for better ones.’’
