some of the exerpts:
There is no question that Gerald Wallace and Stephen Jackson are the leaders on this team, but with Raymond Felton having moved on, it’s time for D.J. Augustin to take on a larger leadership role. Two days into camp, Jackson is already seeing progress in the third-year point guard.
“He’s taken that leadership in the huddles when we’re going over plays. He’s stepping up and speaking,” said Jackson. “This wasn’t the same D.J. last year, so by that, it’s showing us that he wants to be good at this role and is going to take the challenge. That’s all me and Gerald are asking him to do – to be confident about himself and lead this team.”
DUNK OF THE NIGHT
For the second-straight night Gerald Wallace left a lasting impression on a camp newcomer. After nearly jumping over Darius Miles on Tuesday, Wallace drove the center of the lane and threw down a one-handed jam over rookie center Matt Rogers.
It was great to see University of North Carolina great Dean Smith in attendance at Wednesday’s night session. Prior to camp, Brown mentioned how he was hoping Smith could make it to Wilmington. I know it means a lot to him considering what a huge part Smith has played in the man and the coach Brown has become.
Tyrus Thomas was held out of both of Wednesday’s practices with a right ankle sprain, as was Eduardo Najera (hernia) and Kwame Brown (ankle). Sean Livingston (knee) and Darius Miles (knee) both missed the morning session but took part in the evening practice.
