Quotes from the session

Jarred Vanderbilt on his health, “I’m good right now still doing rehab and PT and stuff like that. Our goal is to be ready by the season. Right now we’re just taking it slow, there’s no rush, just trying to get healthy.”

Kevin Knox on Knicks fans who weren’t happy when the Knicks drafted him, “Some of those boos probably turned into cheers.”

Kevin Knox got some attention for an Instagram comment about Carmelo Anthony. He’s going to be more careful on social media, “A lot of guys told me to stay off of social media” And most importantly, “Me and Carmelo have no beef”
