Alvin Gentry on his relationship with Danny Ferry, who joined the Pelicans as a special adviser after two years away from the NBA: "It's fine, it's fine. I've known Danny a long time. Actually, he was kidding me because I watched him play in high school when he was at DeMatha [High School]. He's an extremely bright guy. He's here as a consultant and to challenge us with ideas, and things like that. I think he's done a great job with it."

Derrick Rose feels as if he is "close" to returning to the level he played during 2010-11, when he won the NBA's MVP award: "But me sitting up here and saying that, that's not going to do anything. Next year, I'm going to let my game speak for itself," he said.

Alvin Gentry seemed excited about the potential of second-round pick Cheick Diallo, a raw second-rounder. "He's an energy guy who plays extremely, extremely hard. I think he'll be a fan favorite. He'll do it in practice, he'll do it in the games, he's gonna play extremely hard and he's a guy that can get up and down the court." As far as his position? "I just think he's a basketball player."

Buddy Hield on what he brings to New Orleans: "Just a great teammate. A guy that can spread the floor for guys like Anthony. He's so special the way that he does things, the way he can play both ways, score the ball in a variety of ways -- pick-and-pop, face-up, post-up. So just spreading the floor and making life easier for Anthony on the court."
