      G Kyle Lofton (groin) is active for today’s practice

      It’s unknown yet, however, to what capacity. He’s dressed out and taking part in non-contact drills to start practice. It is yet to be seen whether he’ll run in 5on5.

      This is Lofton’s first action of any capacity since the beginning of October

      Coach Golden now has his full 15 man roster available to him for today’s practice, with Lofton and G Will Richard (knee) both back.

      It’ll be interesting to see where everyone starts to fit in now depth-wise and how the team continues to mesh.

      Team is now running a half-court live offense drill. On the first play, Klatsky drilled a corner three in Reeves’ face.

      Can’t be certain about who falls where in the Gators rotation quite yet, but Golden seems to be solidifying who will be in it.

      It appears as though he’ll run an 11-man rotation this season, at least to start.

      It looks like Aberdeen, Szymczyk, Klatsky and May will be the 4 depth pieces who won’t see a ton of minutes.

      I think it’s safe to say we have a friendly competition here in training camp.

      2 starting guard spots appear to be open for 4 people – Myreon Jones, Trey Bonham, Will Richard and Kyle Lofton.

      It seems, at least to me, that Reeves, Fudge and Castleton have 3-5 locked up.

      A guy to keep in mind, though, is CJ Felder – who has had a good camp. His athleticism and effort are high-level; it’s just about earning Golden’s trust.

      Felder doesn’t jump; he levitates. Just wanted to put that out there — might be the most athletic guy on this team.

      The past 20 minutes have been spent working on off-ball screens and DHOs — possibly a clue to what you can expect to see from this offense early on.

      Team is now working on fast breaks, like they take time to do every practice. Golden appears to really emphasize being efficient in taking advantage of POT (points off turnovers).

      The team will spend the remainder of practice scrimmaging.

      How good do you think this team can be?
