That is a wrap... Can handle a few questions. If none, have a good one.
Pressed on Evans' role, Ayers says Williams will likely rotate Evans around the floor, does not rule out small forward.
Ayers says the team is "more developed physically" this season. The staff us happy with the players' bodies.
Ayers says Holiday has not had any setbacks.
They are waiting on some reports so they can stop holding Anderson back. Next week is possible (reiterated).
Ayers says Evans is doing well, has a ways to go. Evans has worked on his shot "extremely hard" and has extended his range.

Jrue brought up Russ, said Russ is tough.
Jrue is resisting commenting on last season, only saying the team is better off for all that has happened. Complimentary of Asik, standard.
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.
Jrue up http://t.co/WkLMoEb4lr
Anderson says the bad year, injury has helped his passion for the game, reflect on himself, get "mentally stronger."
Anderson made the expected Asik comments, says Asik wants to be a defensive presence.
Anderson's dad had a gym membership, so Ryan got a discount... He is still paying for it, though.
Anderson started running in early August, started going to a 24-hour gym membership in Sacramento area.
Anderson worked conservatively through rehab, feels like he'll be ready for camp. Pleased with the process.
Anderson is getting back in shape, feels good about that. Contact slowly increasing. Expects to be able to "play with the guys" next week.
Anderson up http://t.co/ZMK97fg3IH
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
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.
Jimmer says, regarding his role, the team just asked him to be himself and score
Jimmer time http://t.co/fnScPi3uBW
When asked about Jimmer and their play together in Sacramento, Evans was complimentary.
Evans is not participating in scrimmages, yet. He's being pressed on his role, starting more, but not giving new information.
Expected statements regarding news additions (e.g. excitement). Also, says he hopes to be 100% before the season.
Evans is discussing his injury situation, shooting work, and role. No new info, but says he'd be happy in a small forward role.
Evans taking questions http://t.co/himmi9oapn
Jimmer working on free throws. http://t.co/8NsfTfnrty
Withey and Anderson working on long 2's at the moment. http://t.co/9h0TduaCc9
Evans has done well on a few 3's from the wing. He just nailed this one. http://t.co/OoaSiK0fVP
Withey and Anderson are working together on a far goal. Free throws. Anderson added a putback dunk for fun.
Many of these guys are drenched with sweat and still going, including Jimmer, who is working on long catch-and-shoots with Evans.
Activity on 5 goals, all shooting work at this point
