The pair have teamed up with returning star sophomore Marcus Dickinson to provide a potent offensive punch to the team.
“Quan and Payton both did very well last weekend, and of Marcus as well,” Merritt said. “We have almost everyone back from last year’s team, and they all played well at the tournament.”
While the Timberwolves are still months away from the start of official practices, Merritt is satisfied with how far his team has come in a short time.
“I couldn’t be any more pleased, really,” he said. “It couldn’t be any better considering everything. We’ve done as much as we could possibly do in three-and-a-half weeks.”
