Carmelo Anthony, Derrick Rose and Lance Thomas sitting tonight is not entirely surprising because the Knicks playing the second game of a back-to-back and out of the playoffs. So it makes sense that they'd rest these guys, particularly because losing games is beneficial for them at this point. Rose suffered a foot injury last night against Utah. Carmelo & Lance Thomas' injuries are new.

Derrick Rose says he'll prioritize winning over money in free agency this summer. "Not even thinking money. I've got more than enough money saved. If I stopped playing basketball now, I'll be alright," Rose told reporters in Utah on Wednesday night.

Carmelo Anthony agreed with Jeff Hornacek's admission that the Knicks should've committed to one offense and stuck with it. "Earlier we were playing faster, more free flow throughout the course of the game," he said in Utah, according to reports. "Then we kind of slowed down, started settling it down, not as fast, the pace slowed down for us as a team. It was something we had to make an adjustment on the fly in limited practice time. Once you get into the season it's hard to kind of readjust a whole system."

RB Donnel Pumphrey catches a pass as New York Jets running backs coach Stump Mitchell looks on at San Diego State's pro day Thursday. Pumphrey stood on his combine numbers. He did a nice job catching punts and going through bag drills. The FBS all-time leading rusher with 6,405 yards, Pumphrey understands he'll have to make it as pass-catching back and returner at the next level.

Cabrera takes his sweet time leaving field after ejection (1:32)

Since the Yankees have three off days in the first 2 weeks of the year, they could wait until April 17th, the 13th game of the season, before using a fifth starter. Jordan Montgomery, a rookie lefty, continues to come around the outside to possibly be that man.

The Jets announced the signing of former 49ers WR Quinton Patton. He will be reunited with his former 49ers position coach, John Morton, now the Jets' offensive coordinator. Patton set career highs last season in catches (37) and yards (408). The deal had been in the works since Patton visited last Saturday.

Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera just got tossed from the game - in spring training. He'd had words with home plate Angel Hernandez after a pitch, then lined a single on the next pitch. But his first couple steps out of the box were spent looking back at Hernandez, who ejected Cabrera when he got to first. Here's Cabrera leaving the game - by walking across the entire diamond and out the RF corner. Just plain weird.

Jordan Montgomery sure made this Yankees rotation battle interesting today, with eight K's in 4 1/3 innings. He's yet another endgame sleeper for AL-only owners.
