Will Wade had his first press conference of the new season today...
Like having Tremont at the PF/C spot?Q: THE NATIONAL HYPE ON NAZ (REID) – IS THAT CALLED FOR? SOME PLACES TALK ABOUT HOW HE COULD BE A FIRST ROUND PICK NEXT YEAR. WHAT HAVE YOU SEEN FROM HIM?
A: “Ha, could be? Shoot, will be. He’s a good player. I’m really proud of Naz. He’s down under 250 pounds. He looks phenomenal. He’s lost over 20 pounds. He’s a hard, hard worker. He’s a great listener. The way he sees the game is just tremendous. The best way I can put it is it’s like having Tremont at the power forward, center spot. He’s just a play maker. He’s got great feel, great hands. He’s unbelievably diligent, tremendously smart, has great intellect on the court. He’s got an unbelievable basketball IQ. He’s getting in the best shape of his life, and it’s showing in how he plays and how consistent he’s been. I couldn’t be more pleased with him and more proud of him for his progress.”
