WHAT HE’S SAYING

“Just going to try to get healthy, make sure I get stronger and then get ready for next season.”

WHAT HE LEARNED FROM JAMAL: “Just about being a professional. He brought it every day no matter what was going on. Always in a good mood, always a good locker room presence. Just brings positivity every time he stepped in the locker room. That’s something I can definitely take from him.”

PROUD OF IN HIS SEASON: “Just my consistency over the season. Bringing the same thing every night. Knowing what you were going to get from me was something I kind of took pride in.”

WHAT HE’S WORKING ON IN OFFSEASON: “I’m going to get back to three-point shooting. Work on my ball handling a little more. Trying to play the four a little more next year and that’s my goal.”

THE YOUNG CORE OF THE SUNS: “It’s trending upwards for sure. You’ve got the core here. Deandre, he’s going to be great. Book, you see what he’s doing. I think we’re trending the right way. Our chemistry’s coming up and just got to take this summer by the horns and try to get better.”
