Gaines, who worked as a Bulls scout with Jackson in Chicago, was the major player in the Knicks tabbing Langston Galloway two years ago out of the D-League and is credited with pushing Jackson to draft Kristaps Porzingis at No. 4 in 2015. After scouting Porzingis in Spain, Gaines told Jackson and general manager Steve Mills he should be taken No. 1 overall. According to the source, Gaines believes Ndour can turn into a defensive stopper at the small forward position and wants to develop him. Ndour hasn’t been in the rotation, but has played seven games with Westchester and the club remains committed.

“I never experienced that,’’ Anthony said in his first comments since Rose went AWOL. “It was a scary situation to be in. I don’t even like thinking about that coming into a game, not knowing where somebody’s at, their whereabouts, if they’re OK. That’s the first thing that comes to mind…I just wanted to make sure he’s OK.’’ Knicks brass clearly is upset with Rose, still throwing him under the bus after the game and issuing the point guard a fine after he returned to the team at Tuesday’s practice. Coach Jeff Hornacek claimed after the game the club still hadn’t heard from Rose, though Rose said he had spoken to GM Steve Mills during the contest. Hornacek admitted at the shootaround Wednesday he got a text from Rose after the game.
