Minnesota Timberwolves forward Jaden McDaniels recently spoke about being compared to Brooklyn Nets veteran Mikal Bridges.

(via Minnesota Timberwolves):

Reporter: “I saw a couple different players on podcasts this summer compare your game and progression to Mikal Bridges. Do you see that comparison in your game? Have you watched some of him?”

McDaniels: “Yeah. I can see the comparison. I’m my own player, I always say that. I’ve watched his film. I’ve seen the transformation from Phoenix to Brooklyn, how he did. He’s a great player. I can see myself doing that as well. Continuing to work on my game and getting better is the only way I can get there.”
