Dell Demps: People told me before ‘he’s a good guy’ but this guy, he’s a great guy. I think he’s really going to fit into our culture and that the people and our fans are going to fall in love with him. He plays so hard and plays so smart and he does all the intangibles. He’s going to be our dirty work guy and he’s going to be the anchor on our defense. Monty’s excited to have him. And another guy, who might be more excited, is Anthony. He knows that he has him so it works out there. For a small forward, I think we’ll have an opportunity to see Tyreke play some there. I thought he did well when he played there last year. When you look at some of the games he’s had and what he did playing at the small forward position, I thought he’s a little undersized there, but with all the intangibles and things he does, I think that will be a bright spot. We’re going to have John Salmons come in as a veteran. We’re finalizing his contract right now. That should be soon. I’m not supposed to talk about that.
