"I like everything about Luke Kennard. I like him as a young man, love his family, love his town. There’s not a thing I don’t like about him, and then he’s a great player. He defies one position because he can handle it and be a point guard. He can play the wing. He’s a natural athlete and competitor. Although he scores a lot, he’s an amazing passer, and he’s an easy guy to play with. I’m not sure most people would say that a 40-point a game scorer would be easy to play with, but he is."

Chase Jeter:

"Chase is a natural athlete that runs well, catches well and he’s a really good talker. He sees the game and he’s a student of the game. He works like crazy to improve and he keeps growing. He’s over 6-10, maybe 6-11 now, and will be able to play both the four and the five. He’s an easy guy to play with and has a good energy level."

Both guys are primed to be key contributors, but K really raved about Kennard. He's going to be fun to watch.
