When Burn City Sports’ Brendan Mau asked him how he can differentiate himself from the loaded group of Suns’ wings, he said his length, which gives the ability to defend bigger players and from the point of attack.

“My length is the biggest thing. I am comfortable switching on to bigger players,” he said. He went on to describe if for example they played the Clippers, he could guard Kawhi Leonard or Paul Gerge.

He discusses this, the differences between the Spurs and Suns, how he fits into Phoenix and much more with the media after day four of Suns training camp.
