Michael Porter Jr. thinks GM Calvin Booth’s veteran additions of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Bruce Brown, DeAndre Jordan, Jeff Green, Ish Smith, and Reggie Jackson have helped the team a great deal on and off the court.
(via Denver Nuggets):
Marc J. Spears: “I want to ask about Calvin Booth. When he got appointed GM, what were your thoughts? And what kind of respect do you have for what he brought to the team this season?”
Porter Jr: “Calvin’s my guy. He’s a real chill dude, real laid-back dude, but he does what needs to get done on that side and we have a good relationship. Obviously, I think it’s pretty well known now the guys he brought in are a huge part of the reason why we’re in the Finals. Obviously KCP (Kentavious Caldwell-Pope) and Bruce [Brown] being two of those guys, but really the vets, too, as much as the guys on the floor are contributing to us winning, like DJ (DeAndre Jordan), Jeff [Green], Ish [Smith], Reggie [Jackson]. Those guys’ attitude and their leadership is just part of the reason why we’re doing so well. It’s really just finding a group of guys that mesh in the locker room is a big part of winning, and I think Calvin did a great job of that.”
