Travis Outlaw

“I know I’m way better than what I showed last season,” he said. “I just have to come in there to prove a point and make my team better.”

So what does that mean for Outlaw? He’s working with a conditioning coach and said he’s in better shape than he was at this point last year, when coach Avery Johnson felt compelled to enlist the small forward in his Breakfast Club.

He also is playing in local tournaments, under the radar compared to his teammates competing in New York and overseas.

“A lot of running,” Outlaw said of his offseason training. “I’m putting myself in the best position possible.”
