How have centers Hasheem Thabeet and Daniel Orton fared?
“I like both of them. I like what they bring. Daniel, he has a good feel for the game. He has a good sense of where to be. He's an offensive rebounder. He gets us extra possessions with his tap outs. And he has some toughness. I think (Thabeet) has really done a good job. For a guy 7-3, you don't normally say athletic. But he's pretty athletic. He gets up and down the court. He can move pretty good. I'm happy with that.”
Backup guard Reggie Jackson excelled at times at the Orlando Summer League. How much do you read into Summer League performances?
“I think you have to read some things into it. Summer League is important, but there are a lot of great Summer League players. I was one of them (smiling).”
