Trae Young is obviously the star of the team. You play the same position as him. There are other veterans ahead of you. How do you think you’ll handle the fact that minutes might be difficult to come by? Sharife Cooper: Well, Trae is my teammate and I never want to look like I’m trying to just take something from him. I’m definitely going to compete when we get on that court. You don’t have to worry about that. None of the other stuff matters, but with him as my teammate, I also want to empower him and see him do the best he can possibly do. It’s going to be a competition, for sure, but I’m also not trying to bully him out of his job. It’s a business, and he’s a great player in his own right. I feel like we’ll both be able to strive together.
