On Myles Turner:

Nate McMillan: "Well I think part of that is maturity, their first 4 or 5 years, they're trying to lay foundation and figure out what they are good at and what a team needs. Myles signed his extension last year, all of that is set. The focus is now is play to your strength. His ability to shoot the ball from the perimeter, stretch the defense, defensively defend the basket, block shots, we want him to continue to work and improve his rebounding. We feel that if he can, defend that basket, rebound that ball, offensively stretch the floor that is what we're looking for from him."

On Victor Oladipo:

Nate McMillan: "He's doing great. We're not going to set a date, but he's working out extremely hard. I've gone to visit with him around 3 or 4 times this summer. Ahead of schedule, he's moving, he's not doing any type of contact, he's doing some sprinting, and a lot of shooting. Really, just rehabbing to strengthen both legs. I know this, we're gonna make sure that he's comfortable, he's healthy, and he's ready to go before we put him out on the floor."
