1. Troy Williams - "I'm excited about today - about wearing this jersey. I already sent a picture home to my mom so she could cry about it."

2. Tony Allen - "The last pickup game I played with (Marc Gasol), he hit six threes."

3. Tony Allen - "I got excited because coach said he's going to put me in some sets where I can be a playmaker instead of just sitting in the corner."

4. Tony Allen - *reporter starts off his question by saying, "Tony, you're one of the best defensive players in the NBA"* *Tony abruptly cuts the reporter off* "WHAT YOU SAID."

5. Jordan Adams - "All of the doctors I've seen told me I'll be able to return this season, but there's still no timetable."

6. Zach Randolph on national anthem protests - "I'm trying to come up with something right now. It's a situation that needs to be addressed."

8. Wade Baldwin IV - "I played with myself on 2K for the first time and scored 38 points."
