``We’ve got guys that can score and get up and down the floor,'' Stiemsma said. ``Obviously Anthony (Davis) can block shots. That's what it means to be a physical presence inside, not let the (opponent) get anything easy. I kind of take it personally to own the paint. I’m definitely looking for big things this year for myself personally. It’s a great opportunity to be part of a young team that’s building and trying to turn around a franchise. I think we have the right pieces to do that and hopefully I can fit in with that pretty well.'' New Orleans Times-Picayune
