Danilo Gallinari said he will always play up a position when he's playing next to Tobias Harris.

In other words, Gallo will be the four and Tobias will be the three, and Tobias will be the four when Gallo is the five -- that lineup could close, too. Harris was a major factor after the break with the Clippers thanks to a 23.6 usage rate, and coach Doc Rivers said he expects a breakout year. While he's not a sexy pick, he's about as safe as it gets at the end of the third round or early fourth.

Victor Oladipo said he changed to a no-carb diet and is going to have a "killer instinct" this year.

"You’ve got to learn how to follow before you can lead," Oladipo said. "I'm just working on being a killer, working on killing [it] every day. No matter what I’m doing, I want to win. I might not have had that killer instinct in the past but you better believe I got it now." Oladipo was the star of the show in the clutch for the Pacers with his 43.4 usage rate in the last three minutes of games within five points, but the Pacers weren't very good with a -5.3 net rating. Killer instinct or not, he's firmly on the board as a top-12 pick.

Josh Jackson said he focused on improving his 3-point percentage this summer.

He said he has a realistic goal to improve his 3-point percentage just five percent, which would be a nice improvement from his woeful 26.3 3P% last season. Jackson also said he gained six pounds this summer, as well. Jackson said he was happy about learning from his mistakes last year and that things "started to turn" for him in the second half. He could get minutes at SG this year and was already playing some five last year, so his versatility makes him an alluring target in the second half of drafts.

Damian Lillard said he expects to play off the ball more this season.

"It's something that I wanna do," Dame said. "It's really hard for 82 games just having the ball, making plays, scoring against five people." Lillard said he's up for the challenge, though. Dame ranked fourth in the NBA in time of possession per game, so this would be a noteworthy change. He also said there should be more variety to the offense, which makes sense after what happened vs. New Orleans. With more talk of the Blazers trying to take more 3-pointers, Dame is locked in as a top-eight pick thanks to his durability.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr indicated that DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) is farther along than he expected.

"We're just taking it slowly, but I don't think it'll be too long before he's taking part in practice," Kerr said. This comes on the heels of GM Bob Meyers saying that the Warriors aren't going to hold him back when he's ready, but that's still several weeks away. He's scheduled to be re-evaluated in four weeks, but Cousins' fantasy appeal is growing by the day with all the positive reports out there.

Danilo Gallinari could close some games as the starting five.

Coach Doc Rivers hinted last week that his closing lineup will often be Patrick Beverley, Lou Williams, Avery Bradley, Tobias Harris and Gallinari, and they showcased that exact lineup on the first day of camp. The Clippers are loaded at guard, so small lineups are going to be a major theme for them this season. This is good news for Gallinari because he could play 30+ minutes even with Harris breaking out last season.

Montrezl Harrell said it doesn't matter if he starts or comes off the bench.

Harrell had an eventful offseason, as he worked on his ball-handling, a corner 3-point shot and shooting off the dribble. Coach Doc Rivers said he doesn't have a lineup set in stone yet, and Jovan Buha of The Athletic said he "might have a better shot at stealing the starting spot" from Marcin Gortat than he thought a couple months ago. Harrell is an intriguing late-round pick after showing monster per-minute upside last season.

Goran Dragic (ankle) suffered a minor tweak to his ankle on Tuesday.

He was treated with ice afterward and he’s planning to practice Wednesday. Dragic had to deal with some lingering injuries last year, so the last thing he would want would be an injury in the preseason. For now, expect him to practice on Wednesday and this shouldn't affect his fantasy value. He's a fine pick in the middle rounds.
