Training Camp And Preseason:
Alan Zaugg: What are your thoughts on training camp, especially now that Ty [Corbin] gets his first full camp and preseason? And what has been his approach?
Randy Rigby: I’ve been very happy with our training camp. We’ve had a full, almost month to be able to really work as a team and come together. I was extremely happy as well with the work that was done even before training camp with our work and players out at P3 in Santa Barbara. It brought them in in better shape and better conditioning and Ty has really been organized and the coaching staff has really maximized the time with our training camp. We’ve worked really hard defensively and that’s been an area we want to improve on. We felt we needed to have a good training camp because we have brought in a lot of new players into our system so we needed some time to really come together as a team.
AZ: There are a lot of players who have come into camp in really good shape. Players seem to be in much better shape. Quicker, more athletic. Al Jefferson and Enes Kanter to name a few.
RR: Kanter’s improved. Millsap’s improved. Every one of our players who has utilized P3 we’ve seen improvement in their skill sets and their abilities and that’s something we hope to build on. It’s very important for us and very important for them and their careers. It’s a win/win.
