“That’s what I’m here for,” Covington said. “Being able to be that in the lineup we have, I’m able to add more versatility.
The guys can do a lot on this team, but me being the elite defender I’m accustomed to being, just adding value to this team, just spacing the floor. It shows that we can do a lot. We can be very, very good at it. We just gotta keep building and I keep learning the system. I can get even better because this is a test. I was just out there just playing, and my teammates were talking me through a lot of things. A couple plays, ‘If you continue to do that, it’s gonna be a lot of things we ain’t gotta do’. But my teammates put me in the right position and I just did what I was asked to do.”
