Demps Says Austin Rivers was Bad and Other Draft Day Stories

USA TODAY Sports
  • In an interview with WWL, Demps says that Austin Rivers had a rough go of it his rookie season - the first time I've heard either Demps or Monty say that the Austin Rivers Experience has been less than stellar.

Let's call it what it was…he (Rivers) did not play well to start the season. We threw him out to the fire. Eric (Gordon) was hurt and we just threw him out there. Austin had to learn on the fly. In February the light started to click on for him and he started to play better. And then he broke his hand. He was very upset when he got hurt. His care factor is unbelievable and you root for those kind of guys.
