Coach Nate McMillan said he has a starting lineup in mind heading into training camp, but wouldn’t reveal it. He did acknowledge, however, that Lance Stephenson likely will start the season as the sixth man. Stephenson likely will play starter minutes, but his versatility and energy makes him a logical candidate for playing off the bench. “I hope he can establish (that role),” McMillan said. “A sixth man is like a starter, and he can be a guy who can do a lot of things with that second group with his ability to handle the ball, score the ball. He’s an unselfish player.”
B/R: Which new draftee catches your eye this season? LS: I like Lonzo Ball. I’ve been watching him through the whole summer league and I’m feeling like, he got the full package. He just gotta put it all together and do it in the season. B/R: What do you think about the Big Baller Brand? LS: I actually like it. I feel like he’s confident in his own brand, and he got the guts to do it himself—make your own sneaker and put it out there. You gotta hope the people like it and live up to high expectations. So he’s putting a lot on the line. It’s tough for a rookie, but if you got that confidence, you can do it.
Finally, the much-anticipated Nike uniforms were unveiled — first on video — and Stephenson served as the model. With so much roster turnover, just six guys remain from last year, Stephenson was the face of this new campaign. “It feels awesome,” Stephenson says of his new circumstances. “I’ve been working really hard and I can’t wait ’til this season starts. I’m just happy.”
