RJ Barrett pleased with instructions from coaching staff

RJ Barrett said he didn’t get any welcome-to-the-NBA moments in his first official workout, but noted his friend and fellow rookie, Iggy Brazdeikis did.

“I think Dennis [Smith Jr.] threw a lob and Kenny [Wooten] punched it on him,” Barrett said. “He was in a bad spot. He was in a bad spot.”

Barrett has been working out with most of the team for weeks now, but he was happy to finally get to work under the tutelage of the coaching staff.

“It’s still a practice, a lot of learning and teaching going on,” Barrett said.
