What is the most unfair criticism you’ve heard? Doug McDermott: That I’m just a shooter, and a bad defender. I think I’m more than a shooter, and I think I’ve shown that this year that I can be. And I think I’ve gotten better on the other end of the floor too. I think part of it is who you’re playing with, and I have really good players out there with me that know my weaknesses and cover up for me. And I’ll be there for them when they’re exposed.
What kind of guy is Kristaps Porzingis? Doug McDermott: He’s like the humblest superstar I’ve been around. He’s the kind of guy that we got on the plane, and he keeps borrowing my iPad to play Monopoly with Billy [Hernangomez]. I feel like a librarian, giving him my iPad all the time and he’ll return it to me when we get back to New York ’cause he’s still playing with it in his hotel room.
Kuzminskas and Sessions are each in the final year of their deals. The 3-point specialist who starred in the European Championships for Lithuania is in the last of his two-year deal, paying him $3.8 million. Sessions signed just a one-year deal for the veteran’s minimum of $2.1 million. An outside candidate to be removed is Michael Beasley, who has yet to shine, outplayed by Doug McDermott. He’s also on a one-year veteran’s minimum deal.
