"Gary is emblematic of everything we want to be - a guy that came here, has gotten better each year and has bought in to what (Malone) and his staff are preaching," Tim Connelly, the president of basketball operations, recently said. "He's looking forward to being here a long time. If we can have more guys like Gary Harris, we're going to have a heck of a time and win a lot of games in the coming years."
"It sounds cliche and it sounds corny but our expectations are just to be better," Connelly said. "If we're better, then it's going to be a heck of a season. We're not going to sit here and make proclamations. We haven't earned that right."
