Indiana Pacers guard Victor Oladipo praised his teammate Malcolm Brogdon and said he can’t wait to play with him.

“He’s playing amazing right now,” Oladipo told Alex Kennedy of Hoops Hype. “First and foremost, he’s doing a great job out there of leading us and preparing us to play before every game. I mean, he’s a great player.

Obviously, I was excited for us to get him before the season started and now that we’ve got him, I’m glad he’s here.

I’m really looking forward to getting out there and playing alongside him. I think we got a chance to be a special backcourt and do something special this year,” Oladipo added.

Oladipo, who has been recovering from a knee injury he suffered last year, will make his season debut with the Pacers next week.
