Steve Popper: Austin Rivers mentioned talk of trades – but said he will be professional as long as he’s in NY, where he still has his enthusiasm for the team. He said he always believed D-Rose was coming and knew what it could mean.
Ian Begley: Austin Rivers says, as a competitor, it’s frustrating to be out of the rotation. He said Knicks talked to him after the Derrick Rose trade. Rivers adds that it’s ‘unfortunate’ that he’s out of rotation but his ‘enthusiasm is still there’ for the city and the team.
Eric Walden: Donovan Mitchell, on Mike Conley’s exclusion from the ASG: “It’s unfortunate that we don’t play on national TV enough for people to see his impact. … I thought he would get in. Hopefully he still will as Anthony Davis’ replacement. … He’s definitely earned a spot.”
