Carmelo hopes the Cavs re-sign J.R. Smith soon: "I don't even know what's going on over there with that. I just hope they don't prolong the situation. He helped them win that championship. He was a major part of that team and I hope they can get something done."

Jeff Hornacek says he likes what he's seen from Derrick Rose: "I think he's getting he's legs back. Just watching him last year when we played them, it didn't look like he was as explosive as maybe he is now," the coach said Wednesday. Rose impressed coaches during today's scrimmage.
