Coach Haase on Denzell
"He handles the ball very comfortably, so he can play the point but also either of the wing spots as well. He also has a presence about himself, and he is very, very tough. Throughout his career he's been a big-time scorer. That means he can shoot the three-pointer and knock down mid-range shots."
