NBA trade rumors: Several teams have asked Knicks about disgruntled Kristaps Porzingis

Several NBA teams called the Knicks about a possible trade for Kristaps Porzingis after he skipped an exit meeting with Phil Jackson and general manager Steve Mills, according to ESPN.

It’s still pretty sore, Lowry told reporters. I have to be able [to] play defense, run up and down, make cuts, and I think the making cuts part will be most important. Going straight forward will be OK.

Cory Joseph, who scored 22 points in 25 minutes in Game 2, likely would replace Lowry in the starting lineup if he’s unable to play.

Lowry’s ankle injury is unusual, ESPN.com noted, in that he turned it inward instead of rolling the ankle outward, more typical in basketball. Lowry described the sprain as high on his ankle but said it wasn’t a high ankle sprain.

This one is a little bit different, Lowry said. I want to be out there 100 percent with my teammates, playing and trying to win games, protecting home court. I wish I could be out there with my teammates. That’s the goal. The goal is just to play. I have to wait.

The Raptors trail in the series, 2-0, and badly need Lowry, who has averaged 20 points and eight assists in the series.

Yep. The Bucks dominated this one from the start and never looked back. Toronto was completely out of sync and had no answers the entire night. Dwane Casey’s squad can’t play with this kind of effort again, or this series won’t last long.

Turning point: Uh, at the tipoff? The Raptors shot 3 of 15 to start the game while the Bucks went 12 of 18. Toronto didn’t make a shot outside of the paint until the second quarter. Milwaukee held a 32-12 lead at the end of the first, and it got worse from there.

Mel Kiper gets a B for telling every team how to get an A in his latest NFL mock draft

Kiper believes the Browns should draft Myles Garrett and Mitchell Trubisky. Both players have the potential to be franchise cornerstones. Jourdan Lewis and Josh Jones have the speed and athleticism to bolster Cleveland’s mediocre secondary, and Kareem Hunt can use his size and speed to wreak havoc out the backfield.

My runner-up pick was running back Alvin Kamara. It was a very tough choice but I also see some fine running back prospects left on the board. I’m thinking they could grab one in the third.

I feel like that with tight end O.J. Howard in the first round and then cornerback Tre’Davious White in the second, I have added some playmakers to the Panthers roster. Two pairs of reliable hands for Cam Newton to throw to, plus a dynamic player to return kicks.

Analysis: As mentioned above, this pick for me would have been a speed wide receiver or a running back. Although I do like the pick of Jones, it would have been hard for me to pass on Kamara of Tennessee. For the same reasons the Panthers seem poised to take Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey of Stanford, they should be comfortable with a player like Kamara in the second round. He’s a good all-around back who is comfortable split out as a receiver.
