On entering training camp with a new team:
"“I’m excited, really excited. Little bit nervous coming in with a new team in a different role, but I’m really looking forward to it. The last two weeks, getting to know all the boys, getting to know the different system, I’ve just been counting down the days. I’m looking forward to getting started tomorrow, getting this thing rolling and getting into it.”"
On the possibility of starting:
"“I don’t think my approach changes. I want to come in and play hard, compete. I think my role here is to help out all these other guys and help them become as good as they can be. We’ve got a lot of young guys, with a lot of potential and are still young and learning a lot of things as I’m still young and learning a lot of things as well.”"
On what he can bring to the table defensively:
"“I think defense is something that I’ve always tried to pride myself on. With the length and aggressiveness of these guys, I remember playing against the Bucks two years ago and even last year they were a tough defensive team to play against because they’re different to the other teams in the league. I think I can help out on that defensive side, just talking and trying to make sure everybody’s in the right spot. I’m looking forward to the defensive end because I think we can really get after teams.”"
