So we have a great relationship obviously," Porzingis said on on ESPN 98.7 FM. "Hes always helping me with little details on the court. Hes a master so I couldnt ask for a better mentor."

The Jets could see former No. 1 pick Quinton Coples on Sunday at MetLife Stadium. Coples was claimed on waivers by the Dolphins and chief exec Mike Tannenbaum, the former Jets GM who drafted him in 2012. Coples will arrive for tomorrow's practice; no word on whether he'll suit up, but Miami needs front seven help. Could there be gamesmanship involved? Maybe a little, but you're reaching if you think Coples' knowledge of the Jets' schemes will make a difference in the game.

To fill Quinton Coples' roster spot, the Jets poached OLB Josh Martin from the Colts' practice squad and added him to the 53-man roster. Previously, he played for the Bucs and Chiefs. His career numbers: 21 games, one-half sack and 28 tackles, all with the Chiefs. The Jets replaced a former No. 1 pick with a former undrafted free agent out of Columbia. It tells you how much they wanted to move on from Coples.
