Notes from the Workouts


Mike Trudell has some notes from today's workouts:

Q: On what he liked about seeing Chris Douglas-Roberts in person:
Hoiberg: He's such a great competitor. He's a guy that scores in a variety of ways. He's kind of unorthodox in the way he scores: going off his right leg; coming off the curl; shooting floaters; he just has a way of putting the ball in the basket. He had such a great year for Memphis and last season as well. He's a guy that has been there, he comes from a winning program and his team always seems to win. So, he's a guy that's very interesting.

Q: On if Douglas-Roberts' confidence is something the team likes to see:
Hoiberg: Sure. He's a very confident kid. You know, you like to see that. You like to see the guys that think highly of themselves and ones that think they'll have a long and successful NBA career and he's definitely one of those guys.

Q On how important it is that Douglas-Roberts helped build a winning program:
Hoiberg: That's important. I mean, you look at what we've done, we tried to do that with Corey (Brewer), winning back-to-back national championships. Rashad (McCants) won a national championship; Randy Foye's team had a lot of success in college. You try to get guys from winning programs. I think the more winners you put together, the better off you are.

Please, please, please draft CDR.  KARE 11 has video here. I'll continue to posts any notes from the workout if they become available in the local press.
