"I've been watching him for a little minute at Georgia, he's an all-around player, can shoot it, get downhill, finish at the rim, just an all-around player for me."

- Anthony Edwards hits the court to begin his workout, starting with some off the dribble action from the 3-point line.

- Maxey on his work ethic: "I do it, just becuase I love the grind, a lot of people don't like doing it, its extremely hard, and I use that as a psychological advantage and I know I work extremely hard and its going to pay off and im going to reap the benefits."

- Maxey impressed in his workout, displaying his catch-and-shoot ability from the 3-point line

- It's a new day in the NBA
