When told of how back in November Baynes’ Spurs teammates joked about him being held out of practices in fear he would injure them, Ingles laughed and agreed Baynes is a strong player, but only because he’s trying to do his best. “It doesn’t surprise me at all,” said Ingles of Baynes being withheld from practices. “Yeah, there’s a few. He’s an aggressive guy. He obviously doesn’t do it on purpose, but the way he plays, he goes so hard, that sometimes he loses control of his body a little bit. It’s more him just going hard and trying to do the best he can, than actually trying to hurt somebody.” ProjectSpurs.com

As for the direction Australia’s basketball program is headed, Ingles says it’s looking even stronger with the incoming talent that will be coming in the future. “It’s getting stronger and stronger,” said Ingles. “We’ve got young guys playing over here (pointed to Exum at his locker) and then we have younger guys coming through in the next couple of years and what we’ve already got. I think this is the most (Australians) we have playing over here, which I think is seven guys playing over here. To add a few young guys to that who are already playing with Australia in Europe, it’s some exciting times for us.” ProjectSpurs.com

“I like him,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said before Monday’s 107-101 win over Ingles and his new team. “We were definitely trying to find ways to keep him. I think he’s going to be a good player.” The problem for Ingles was that the Clippers had an overfull roster and had to make a hard decision before final rosters were due to the NBA office with between 13-15 players. Rivers believes the Australian small forward “would’ve found his way on the floor with us” if L.A. could’ve held on to the 27-year-old. “I just think a guy that knows how to play when you put him on a good team, he can be really good,” Rivers continued. “And he’s a great guy that you want on your team.” Deseret News

Forward Joe Ingles, who is trying to make this Clippers team, is from Australia and he speaks with a heavy accent. Coach Doc Rivers on Thursday was asked if he sometimes has difficulty making out what Ingles says. Rivers had some fun with his reply. “There are times because, it’s English, I think, right?” Doc Rivers said, drawing laughs from reporters at the team’s training headquarters in Playa Vista. “But it’s English spoken from Australia. So, yeah, there is clearly things … and I guarantee you, there are things I say that he doesn’t understand. It’s a two-way street. And I would think that would be to his advantage. If he doesn’t understand everything I say, it would probably make him a better person, for sure.” Los Angeles Daily News
