Ian Begley: Carmelo Anthony says the Knicks are set at front court and hints that he wants the club to prioritize talent over finding players that fit the system this summer. “I believe we have one of the best front courts in the NBA, I believe that. You put a couple of other pieces around that, I think we have something that we can work with, that we can go out and compete with. So I think everybody just needs to be on the same page when it comes to that and not trying to figure out what piece fits here, what piece fits there. At this point, you’ve got to get players,” Anthony told ESPN during a promotional appearance for Gillette.

In an interview with Sports 1140 KHTK, a CBS Sacramento radio station, Cousins was asked what the Kings’ result would have been this year if Michael Malone weren’t ever fired in the early portion of the 2014-15 season. “We would have been a playoff team,” Cousins said without hesitation. “The thing about that is, it was one goal in my mind at the end of the day: winning games. And the way that team was structured, the way the foundation was set for that team, that collective group, I believe it was done the right way. Of course, it didn’t show on paper, but we were taking the right steps. It’s never gonna happen overnight.”
The Charlotte Hornets announced today that center Spencer Hawes underwent a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) which revealed a sprain of the medial collateral ligament (MCL) in his right knee. Hawes is listed as out for Game 6 tomorrow night in Charlotte and will be re-evaluated in a week. He suffered the injury during the Hornets win in Game 5 last night in Miami. Hawes has appeared in five playoff games for Charlotte with averages of 3.6 points (.462 FG%) and 3.2 rebounds in 10.6 minutes per game.
