Jets brass will be in Chapel Hill, N.C., today for a private workout with UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky. He put it on the radar at his recent pro day, when he said the Jets were one of the teams that wanted private time with him. The Jets say they're open to drafting a quarterback with the sixth pick, which would surprise many around the league. They've also worked out Clemson's Deshaun Watson and Notre Dame's DeShone Kizer.

Carmelo Anthony took 12 shots tonight. Here's Anthony on accepting a lesser role the rest of the season to give the Knicks' younger players more opportunity: "I see the writing on the wall. I see what it is. I see what they're trying to do and it's just me accepting that. That's what puts me at peace. Just knowing and understanding how things work. I'm at peace with that."

Jeff Hornacek makes it sound as if the veterans will still get minutes in the final games of the season but the club's young players will get some more playing time.

With tonight's loss to the Heat, the Knicks are mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. They have missed the playoffs for four straight seasons, including Phil Jackson's three full seasons as team president.
