What he is

An old-school, pass-first point guard who makes teammates better and has been a winner all his life, until now.

What he isn’t

A reliable shooter but surprisingly, he led the Wolves in preseason three-point shooting percentage — 6-for-11, 54.5 percent — after once again working on that shot all summer.

The quote

“He’s always going to make plays and play hard. It’s really going to come down to him shooting the ball consistently. That’s really what’s going to elevate him to the next level.” — Wolves coach Rick Adelman.
