Quote to Note:

Reed:

“[The Summer League experience is] very beneficial. It’s great practice for us to get comfortable with how they want us to play during the season.”

Joe:

“There are certain things that they want us to work on, and showcase. I think it’s also a great time to be leaders, especially for the young guys coming in. That’s one thing that we’ve been trying to take upon ourselves. It’s a great opportunity to get better, and get prepared for the season.”
