During NBA TV’s broadcast, coach Rick Adelman talked about more important matters.

On Ricky Rubio’s recovery: “He’s ahead of schedule. We have no idea if he’s going to be there, probably November, December we hope. But we’re just hoping.”

On the team’s pursuit of Nicolas Batum: “He’s a perfect fit for our team. … But it’s a business. It was a good intent [to sign him to a $46.5 million offer sheet]. Wish it would get over with.”

 On Brandon Roy’s arrival: “It’s kind of like you’re rolling the dice. He would help us so much at the end of games, if he can stay healthy.”
