"There are some broader themes here, like (the idea that) using analysis means somehow you're like Spock, an unfeeling robot machine," Morey told USA TODAY Sports. "Now yeah, I have a more open style (than some of his like-minded contemporaries) and I really don't hide that fact. My background would make it, to me, silly to try and say that all I do is wear shorts and bounce a basketball all day and don't ever partake in any analysis. USA Today Sports

"I think people look at Daryl as a guy who is playing NBA2K15 with his roster," Battier, who is now retired, told USA TODAY Sports. "Now Daryl would be the first to tell you, 'Look, I am about improving my team in every way possible and I'm going to do it in a way that makes sense for this organization.' But if you gave truth serum to every (general manager), that's what they would tell you. Daryl is a little more forthcoming with his motivations. "I think Daryl's background as an MIT guy, a Northwestern guy works against him. And then again, people feel he's cold and calculating and doesn't have a heart. I enjoyed my conversations with Daryl. He's one of the smartest people I've come to know in sports. We've always had a great personal relationship." USA Today Sports

David Aladridge: You had a couple of years left on your Barcelona deal. What made you think this was the right time to come over? Kostas Papanikoulau: First of all, what I saw, was the team showed to me that they really wanted me to come here, and they really want to give me this chance, was a big factor. I talk with Daryl, I talk with Coach McHale. That kind of make a player feel like they really want me, you know? After this offer, I would say I will be like, pardon the expression, I will be like a fool if I don't take this offer. And also, I don't want to miss this opportunity, and five years [later] go back and say 'why didn't I go back then, when I could?' Because you don't know. You don't get these chances every day...great players had the opportunity, and they never did it. It was a life dream for me, and I wanted to give it a shot, you know? I don't know if I'm going to be good for this league or not, but at least when I go through my career, I will say, at least I gave it a chance. At least I fought for it. I didn't make it, or I made it. I don't know. NBA.com

Beverley won’t deny he’s aware of the importance of the upcoming season in regard to his contract situation. But he won’t presently concern himself with his next deal. “The contract year is big for everyone,” Beverley said. “The biggest thing for me is to continue doing what I’ve been doing: playing defense, being aggressive, and leading this team. Then I’ll let the dominoes fall wherever they fall. “It’s something I can’t control. I can only control my basketball playing, and that will get me what I deserve. I haven’t thought about all that yet. It’s the beginning of the year. I’m just trying to stay healthy to lead a basketball team. I’ll let my agent do his job.” Houston Chronicle
