The Jets locked up their No. 1 free agent priority, signing RG Brian Winters to a four-year contract extension. Winters, 25, finished the season on injured reserve with a torn rotator cuff. He has started 41 games in four seasons and would've been a coveted free agent.

Carmelo Anthony said he hadn't heard from Phil Jackson over the Charley Rosen article that stated that he had outworn his 'usefulness' in New York. Anthony also said there's no issue between he and management: "If they want to come talk to me, I'm around them guys every day. I don't want this to be kind of going back and forth between me and the front office, management, because it's really nothing, I responded to an article that I read. That was that. There's nothing between myself and management at this point."

Carmelo Anthony was asked about how "much" he wants to remain a Knick and about his loyalty to the franchise: "I think I've proven that. I don't have to speak on that. I think I've proven that over the years day in and day out." Anthony says he's shown that by being a professional every day in his approach and handling the duties of being the public face of the franchise every day. He's handled that well, in my opinion.
