Jeff: What are your impressions of Spurs' rookie Josh Primo?

Nate: He's a competitor. He's a leader in a sense, like he comes in as an 18-year-old, but he's talking to everybody on the court. It doesn't matter how old they are. I'm 24, and he'll come talk to me about certain things that he might see out there.

So I think he's got a really bright future. He's obviously very athletic, and he's got a good feel for the game. I think he's going to be great.

Jeff: There's a lot of San Antonio and Austin fans who cheer for you. What would be your words to them that are pulling for you to become an NBA player?

Nate: I appreciate the support. I'm working in the offseason trying to get better every day and hope that one day, I can achieve those goals of mine and just make the roster eventually.

Jeff: Has there been any other teams that may have been in contact with you since Austin?

Nate: (laughs) No comment.

Jeff: I had to ask, Nate!

Nate: (laughs) All good!
