T.J. Warren interview, pre-draft interview quotesThe following are some T.J. Warren pre-draft interview quotes from Wednesday, one day before the 2014 NBA Draft. Warren attended North Carolina State, and is a talented 2014 NBA draft prospect:

Question: Of this draft class, who would you like to be drafted alongside?

T.J. Warren: Elfrid Payton. Me and Elfrid met like two months ago, we were preparing for the draft. Just getting familiar with him and with his game, heís a great player.

Question: What do you think youíll be feeling when your name is called?

Warren: Itíll be a great feeling. Iíve been waiting 20 years for this, so itíll be a great feeling for me.

Question: Did you work out with the Celtics? How did it go?

Warren: Yes. It went very well, I really enjoyed it. Brad Stevens, Danny Ainge Ė theyíre a good group of guys. Overall, it was a great organization.

Question: What was that like, going up there? It seems like they might be looking at you for that 17th pick.

Warren: It was fun, it was a great experience to be around an NBA organization. Just learning from both guys and being able to compete in front of NBA coaches is big.

Question: How have you been trying to convince teams youíre more than just a scorer?

Warren: Just showing I can defend. For me scoring the ball so well, people donít really appreciate the other things I do. Just trying to show my all-around game.

Question: Is there anything youíve worked on since school to focus specifically on defense?

Warren: Just improving my body even more and keeping a strong focus. It really translated well to the workouts.

Question: Whatís the entire draft process been like?

Warren: Itís been a long process. Iím very fortunate to be in this position and being able to compete in front of NBA teams to show them what I can do at the next level.

Question: I know itís been a grind, but what has been your favorite part of the process?

Warren: Just interacting with all of the other draft prospects. You only do this one time in your life, so you just have to embrace it.

Question: Why was this the right time for you to come out?

Warren: I just felt confident. I had a positive feel for it. I wouldnít be doing this if I didnít feel confident. Iíve been getting great advice and good feedback, so I thought this was the right decision.
