QUOTEABLE

Heat protection Victor Oladipo on the first practice session with the team: “It was good to actually make it to practice and see how we run things here, get used to the games, play calls and just look at me better my teammates get used to. It was great, it was great, the first practice. Obviously, I didn’t get a chance. Just getting that out of the way was just good for me, also for my comfortable level. “
