Last week, Winslow attended a Yankees game with his new Roc Nation agency and sat with Anthony and his young son, Kiyan. “Of course Carmelo loves playing for the Knicks — I know he loves playing for the Knicks,’’ Winslow said Friday at the NBA draft combine. “Our conversation wasn’t how I’d fit in with the Knicks. Our conversation was the adjustment from college to the league and how my workouts were going. He’s being a mentor for a similar guy, similar path, national champion freshman year. It’s great to have a guy like that who accomplished so much to look out for you.’’ New York Post

Justise Winslow, a wing who helped lead Duke to the national title last month, said he interviewed with the Magic during the combine. How did the conversation go? "It was very good," said Winslow, who is widely expected to be a top-six pick. "I really like their group, a young nucleus. ... It's a fun group, a fun city. The meeting went really well. We just talked about different things, picking at my brain on and off the court. So it was a very interesting meeting." Orlando Sentinel

"He makes winning plays," a Southeast Division executive said. "Early in the year when I first watched him, when they ran Michigan State out of the gym the first time, one of the things I marked down -- and I didn't know his bio a ton -- was that this kid was a winner. And then I looked and he'd (also) won a couple of state titles." NBA.com
