On what he brings to the team: "A lot of 3s and defense. Just going out there and having fun and trying to bring as much excitement as I can."
On meeting Vince Carter, the NBA veteran who's in his first season in Atlanta, and competing against him in a 3-point contest in practice: "After talking to him, he's a regular guy. He loves to help out when he can. Just being in that competition, joking around with him, it felt like i'd known him forever. That's just the type of man he is and the vibe he brings."
On where he was when he got the news that the Hawks wanted to sign him: "I was at my dad's house . I was in my living room. I got a call from my GM down in Erie. It was just a casual conversation, and then he told me, 'Atlanta has seen your work, and they're very excited to give you a 10-day.' I started sweating a little bit. I got nervous. But I was just excited. My dad was in the living room. I ran out there and told him. He was sick and laying on the couch. Once I told him, he jumped up and gave me a hug. I'm like, 'Don't get me sick.' But, no, it was exciting. I told my dad. I told my mom and my brother. I'm just excited to be here and have an opportunity to contribute to the team however they need me to. I think I've been fitting in pretty well so far."
