ere are some things I need to do with my teammates as far as getting to know each other on the court. But once we get it clicking and get on the same page, I think everything will come out smoothly. I’m really just trying to find my pace and adjust to how fast this game is.

→Q: Anything out of the ordinary for you or have things gone about as you expected?

A: No. It’s just a little bit faster. It’s only 24 seconds in the shot clock. And it’s so many ball screens being set you have to learn how to play different defenses and just move faster.

→Q: What are your goals for the rest of summer league?

A: Just to improve my defense and to improve as a basketball player. Work on certain things that I’m not used to doing. But nothing too major.
