Damion James Workout Q&A

This week, several Nets are training at the PNY Center in East Rutherford, a group including Terrence Williams and rookies Derrick Favors, Damion James, Ben Uzoh and Brian Zoubek. NJNets.com caught up with James for a few questions at the conclusion of Mondays workout.

NJNets.com: What did earning First-Team All-Summer League recognition in Orlando mean to you?

Damion James: Those are things I expect. I put hard work in. (For example,) I put a lot of hard work in college, and I was able to play right away. With that being said, those are my expectations. Nothing less.

NJNets.com: Were you annoyed the thumb injury kept you out of the final game?

James: Yeah. Coach really wasnt tripping he knows how hard I am, that Im a warrior, it had to be really something wrong with me to miss out. But it was a great time for me, being able to jell with the team that were going to have, the players that are going to come.

NJNets.com: What did you think of Derrick Favors 23 and 11 performance, getting to watch from the bench?

James:
Oh, man. Those are things you expect out of the No. 3 draft pick, you know what Im saying? Hes young, but the skys the limit for that young man. I look forward to playing with him hes a great guy.

NJNets.com: What have you been working on since you got back?


James: Just conditioning. Back to lifting weights and playing ball again. I had a couple days off, but Im getting ready to go to Vegas and train out there.

NJNets.com: For the Tim Grgurich camp?

James: Yeah, itll be good for me. T-Will and Favors are going to be out there with me. I havent been to Vegas in a long time, so Im looking forward to going out there and playing ball again.

NJNets.com: What has the coaching staff told you about how they plan to utilize you?

James:
Theyre looking for me to come in and play right away. Theyre going to use me a lot theyre looking for me to score and be a pitbull, and thats what I am.

NJNets.com: What about the teams offseason moves you looking forward to playing with these guys?

James:
I think were going to be in a lot of ball games, have a lot more victories. Its a big chance to turn this franchise around, and I just want to be a big part of that.
