I would love to hear what you have been up to since your season ended in March. Luka Garza: Yeah, it’s been a lot of fun. After the year, I decided to sign with my agency, Imperative Sports. We decided it would be best that I slim down and lose some weight. My transition to the NBA would be a different game. I wouldn’t be playing as much post-up basketball as I was in college. It’s not the same game. I was posting up 47% of the time. That’s quite a bit. So we decided to make the transition. I was around 268 playing weight during the year. I took a couple of weeks off during the season, got up to 271, and then checked into the combine at 242. I’ve obviously lost a lot of weight, changing my diet, working with a dietician. I’m doing a lot of workouts to just get myself in shape, get myself ready.
