Pelinka Excited by Attributes Rondo, Lance and JaVale Bring

“I think when you look at guys like Rajon Rondo, he’s a basketball savant. All the players in the league know that. He was on our court a day ago, and I was watching from my office. He was working on one play for two hours. That’s that Kobe-level of detail and breaking down plays. Lance Stephenson, he brings that sort of swagger and toughness from New York City, Rucker Park. He’s been in here the last couple days talking a lot, bringing energy to practice. JaVale McGee, we felt like he was a big that could run with Lonzo and Rondo when they’re pushing pace, keep the floor energized and protect the rim.”
