During Boston's crazy offseason, Jaylen Brown turned to Al Horford. "He's been in the league 10-plus years and he said he's never seen anything like this before, said Brown. "So I was interested in hearing it from his perspective. It's going to take some time to jell."

Jarrett Jack has been one of more than 15 Knicks working out and scrimmaging at the team's training facility in Tarrytown. Carmelo Anthony has been training at his gym in the Sky Building in Manhattan but hasn't been working out at the facility, which is somewhat noteworthy but not all that surprising since the Knicks and Anthony aren't on great terms (the club wants to trade Anthony; Anthony wants to be traded). Other Knicks players have been to Carmelo's gym for pickup and members of the organization, including Steve Mills and Jeff Hornacek, have attended workouts.

Veteran point guard Jarrett Jack says he's 100 percent healthy after he was limited to two games last season due to a right knee injury. He's been working out at the Knicks training facility with rookie point guard Frank Ntilikina and others. "Really long arms, really active defensively," Jack said of Ntilikina, who has a 7-0 wingspan. "Great size. Just looking forward to giving him all the game that I've gotten over these 13 years… He has a great pace to him. He's crafty, definitely going to cause a lot of problems on the defensive end which in turn can hopefully lead to some easy buckets on offense."
