Wolves guard Tyus Jones had some interesting things to say about new head coach Ryan Saunders at Tuesday's shootaround:

• On the mood of the team: "Guys are rallying around each other, rallying around Ryan, trying to bring fresh energy. Just ready to go, ready for a new start. Yeah, we're ready to go."

• On how he thinks Saunders will handle the job: "He's going to be great. I think he's prepared a long time for this moment. Everyone believes in him, respects him, trusts him. And everyone is going to play really hard and have his back."

• On how the team will move forward with its new coach: "Whatever Ryan feels he's going to change, no matter what it is, that's what we're going with. That's what we're going to believe in, support 100 percent. He's in charge now, so we're going with him. We're riding with him, and that's as simple as I can put it. Everyone trusts him, believes in him. That's what we're doing here."
