- On his time here in L.A.
“I don’t feel like I played bad. I thought I played pretty well but guys started coming back and I was the odd man out in terms of minutes. I started to lose a little confidence not knowing my role or not knowing when I’d get in the game.”
- On if it was frustrating for him being in that situation:
“It’s the NBA. All you can do is work hard and control what you can control. You’re only as good as your opportunity.”
- On the feedback he received from Mike D’Antoni:
“He knew I was talented. Just have to find a way to play within the system instead of being just a talented one-on-one player.”
- On the past year playing for three different teams (Celtics, Warriors, Lakers):
“I’m at a crossroads. I just have to go earn a spot, which I don’t mind at all.”
- On what he needs to do to improve as a player:
“Just be more efficient with the ball. Just continue to work on my body and get stronger, become a better shooter and make things happen faster.”
