I'm just really happy to be here. I'm looking forward to getting better and working with the coaches every day and getting an opportunity to play basketball every day. So I'm very excited.

What about some of your strengths and weaknesses?

My strength is I can score. I love to score. I love to play for my team. I can do a lot of things. And I've got weaknesses in all areas. I can get better in all areas. So I'm looking forward to playing basketball and getting better.

Is there a player that you've patterned your game after?

Not really one particular player. I think I take a little from whoever is good at something. I try to put that in my own game.

You underwent surgery for a sports hernia in July. How is the recovery going and where are you now?

It's going well. I'm still rehabbing. I'm getting better every day, so I'm excited to get back on the court. I don't know exactly the date (of my return), but I feel like I'm getting better every day and I'm feeling a lot better.

What are your expectations coming into training camp?

Honestly, I don't really have any. I know they expect me to come in every day and work hard and that's what I plan to do. Whatever they want me to do I'm happy to do it.
