Here is a portion of Friday's story:
"I think, when you look at the roster, it's open for everybody," McKie said. "Look at our situation early last year - Jodie Meeks wasn't in the rotation and became a starter for us (at shooting guard) and played major minutes.
"He did sit out a year (and) didn't play much in actual games. We just want him to get a little stronger and continue to work on playing around the basket to become more of a force around the rim. He's a very skilled player."
