For the second straight practice, Golden has his full 15-man roster suited up. Lofton and Richard appear to be 100%.

Bonham missed a layup in warmups and ran straight to the sideline to do pushups. Reeves did the same thing yesterday, so I’m not sure whether this is a Golden thing or not.

Golden opened today’s practice splitting up the guards and bigs – guards on one side of the court in reverse layup lines, bigs on the other slipping screens.
The “bigs” group included Castleton, Jitoboh, Szymczyk, Felder and Fudge.

Fudge is seen as a sort of hybrid big, potential ball handler at times. Seeing him being officially labeled as a “big” in Golden’s eyes is interesting. It may solidify him being a 4 this season.

Will Richard might be a sniper, guys.

Full team is doing a 3-point shooting drill now where guys are constantly putting up shots from the corner and wing. Balls are flying around everywhere — in a good way. Guys are in so many different spots it’s tough to follow with your eyes. They know what they’re doing, though. The balls are always getting to where they’re supposed to. To me, being able to smoothly run drills like this are a sign of a foundationally solid team.

Richard, Castleton and Bonham looked specifically sharp in the drill — hitting just about every shot I saw them put up. They’re now running the same drill on the other hoop. 4 and a half non-stop minutes each side.

The team has concluded the warmups and drills portion of practice. This ends today’s media viewing time.
From what I saw, the entire 15-man roster appears to be fully healthy. It was good to see guys like Richard and Lofton hitting shots.
Note: Richard still has tape around his previously injured knee, the same he had yesterday. Nobody else had on any braces, wraps, tape or such.
