DeMar DeRozan: I felt like I wasn’t treated with what I sacrificed for nine years, with the respect that I thought I deserved. By just giving me the say so of letting me know something’s going on or it’s a chance. That’s all I wanted. That’s all I wanted. I’m not saying, ‘You don’t have to trade me’ or … just let me know something is going on because I sacrificed everything. Just let me know. That’s all I asked. Everybody know I’m the most low-maintenance person in the world. Just let me know, so I can prepare myself for whatever my next chapter is, and I didn’t get that.

Stefan Bondy: Courtney Lee will play in the G League tomorrow and is scheduled to rejoin the Knicks for Friday’s game in Charlotte, meaning he’ll miss Wednesday’s game in Cleveland. If there’s no Burke (knee) or Trier (hamstring), Frank Ntilikina will have to get another real opportunity.
Derek Bodner: Brett Brown said Joel Embiid was experiencing flu-like symptoms in addition to the migraine. Didn’t think he would play until late.
