Jason Calmes

That is a wrap... Can handle a few questions. If none, have a good one.

Jason Calmes

Pressed on Evans' role, Ayers says Williams will likely rotate Evans around the floor, does not rule out small forward.

Jason Calmes

Ayers says the team is "more developed physically" this season. The staff us happy with the players' bodies.

Jason Calmes

Ayers says Holiday has not had any setbacks.

Jason Calmes

They are waiting on some reports so they can stop holding Anderson back. Next week is possible (reiterated).

Jason Calmes

Ayers says Evans is doing well, has a ways to go. Evans has worked on his shot "extremely hard" and has extended his range.

Jason Calmes

Coach Ayers http://t.co/2zy9HG2wiM

Jason Calmes

Jrue brought up Russ, said Russ is tough.

Jason Calmes

Jrue is resisting commenting on last season, only saying the team is better off for all that has happened. Complimentary of Asik, standard.

Jason Calmes

Jrue started working in mid-July, started working on the court in mid-August, but is not 100%. Today was the first 5-on-5 for him.

Jason Calmes

Jrue up http://t.co/WkLMoEb4lr

Jason Calmes

Anderson says the bad year, injury has helped his passion for the game, reflect on himself, get "mentally stronger."

Jason Calmes

Anderson made the expected Asik comments, says Asik wants to be a defensive presence.

Jason Calmes

Anderson's dad had a gym membership, so Ryan got a discount... He is still paying for it, though.

Jason Calmes

Anderson started running in early August, started going to a 24-hour gym membership in Sacramento area.

Jason Calmes

Anderson worked conservatively through rehab, feels like he'll be ready for camp. Pleased with the process.

Jason Calmes

Anderson is getting back in shape, feels good about that. Contact slowly increasing. Expects to be able to "play with the guys" next week.

Jason Calmes

Anderson up http://t.co/ZMK97fg3IH

Jason Calmes

Jimmer joined Anderson and Withey for a Saints game, enjoyed it. He is complimentary of the facility, excited to spend more time in the city

Jason Calmes

Jimmer says the staff has said there are more guys working earlier than before, and he says it is also more than he had in Sacramento.

Jason Calmes

Jimmer says, regarding his role, the team just asked him to be himself and score

Jason Calmes

Jimmer time http://t.co/fnScPi3uBW

Jason Calmes

When asked about Jimmer and their play together in Sacramento, Evans was complimentary.

Jason Calmes

Evans is not participating in scrimmages, yet. He's being pressed on his role, starting more, but not giving new information.

Jason Calmes

Expected statements regarding news additions (e.g. excitement). Also, says he hopes to be 100% before the season.

Jason Calmes

Evans is discussing his injury situation, shooting work, and role. No new info, but says he'd be happy in a small forward role.

Jason Calmes

Evans taking questions http://t.co/himmi9oapn

Jimmer working on free throws. http://t.co/8NsfTfnrty

Jason Calmes

Withey and Anderson working on long 2's at the moment. http://t.co/9h0TduaCc9

Jason Calmes

Evans has done well on a few 3's from the wing. He just nailed this one. http://t.co/OoaSiK0fVP

Jason Calmes

Withey and Anderson are working together on a far goal. Free throws. Anderson added a putback dunk for fun.

Jason Calmes

Many of these guys are drenched with sweat and still going, including Jimmer, who is working on long catch-and-shoots with Evans.

Jason Calmes

Activity on 5 goals, all shooting work at this point
