“I think it is (easy) being that I understand the game, understand my role at this stage,” he said. “And, I understand this team is all about our stars and the stars in the league. I’m just trying to fill in and play off of Chris (Paul), off of Blake and off of (DeAndre Jordan), just fill whatever kind of role they need me for. “But I think the transition is going to be easy – get to the corner and make 3-pointers.”
Basketball Insiders: This summer, you guys lost Paul Pierce, but you added some quality veterans in Jared Dudley, Gary Neal and Alan Anderson among others. Personally, I liked the moves since those guys can be key contributors and they will improve your depth. What did you think of the team’s offseason? John Wall: “It was great. It was tough losing Paul [Pierce], Rasual [Butler] and those guys because they helped us a lot, but I like the additions. Alan [Anderson] can help us. Gary [Neal] has been around a team that’s been to the Finals. A guy like Jared Dudley knows what it takes to win and he’s someone who knows his role. These are all veteran guys who know their role and who can come in and just help us win games. Those kind of guys are key.”
