Former Maryland guard Dez Wells was one of six players who worked out for the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday, the second such event he has attended after doing the same for the Boston Celtics earlier this month.
He spoke to the media after, a session captured by LakersNation.com:
On the overall workout:
I felt good. I thought … I did really well for the workout. I made shots, you know. I competed really hard and I played the right way so I think doing all those things in these NBA workouts is a recipe for a really good one.
On what he was trying to show:
You just got out there and play and stick to what you’re really good at and show them what you’ve been working on because they can see that. These guys are highly trained and they’re professionals at what they do so they know what they’re looking for. So just go out there, play your game and play as hard as you can and I think you’ll do well.
On his feelings going into the workout:
I’m not nervous at all. You wait for this process throughout your whole life so when you get here, you’ve been prepping for it for about six or seven weeks so you just get in here and you just let loose. Don’t even pay attention to the GMs and the scouts and the head coaches that are on the sideline. You just go out there and do what you love and have fun with it, man.
On how he would describe his game:
I would say I would describe my game as high energy, a person who can play both sides of the ball, can score, can defend, can make the right plays, can rebound. Everything is just like a jack of all trades. I can do some of everything.
