Kevin Durant wouldn't say whether he will meet with the Knicks but he did say he's "excited" to see how Derrick Rose does in New York and that Carmelo Anthony has long been "like my big brother" since he was in high school. When asked whether Rose, Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis make the Knicks more appealing, Durant said, "I haven't really thought about that. They obviously have a good team now with D-Rose, Melo and Porzingis. I am going to talk to my team and we will figure things out but right now it is kind of hard to say."

Most interpreted this tweet as Cousins expressing displeasure with the pick. Cousins explained it differently on Monday. "Bad timing," he said at the USA Basketball event in New York to unveil the Olympic roster. So, what was the tweet in reference to? "It sounds ridiculous, but I was in a hot sculpting class. Yeah, I'm busted."

Girardi to use A-Rod differently (0:29)

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Yankees manager Joe Girardi says he is going to "do something different" in his use of Alex Rodriguez, meaning A-Rod won't play against a lot of righties in the near term. Rodriguez had been the regular DH, but his OPS against rightiesis just .584, while vs. lefties it is .837. A-Rod said, "You havent' heard the last of me." A-Rod has been benched for the second straight game. He will start against a lefty on Tuesday, but after that it is uncertain how much he will play.
