Did hear it myself, but courtesy of Hypz from the RealGM.

-Currently spending time with the family
-Wearing a half-cast over his hand for 3 weeks.
-Once cast is off, its very easy to rehab the hand on his own
-Planning on working out with his usual guy in Tampa this summer
-Places more importance on conditioning than on playing actual basketball games in summer league

On exit interview with Sam and Collangelo:
-asked them what they want from him, what he can improve
-they said they'd consult him before any roster changes this summer
-thinks anything can happen, moves will be made, he sees nothing wrong if he is traded in order to make the team better

On last season for the Raptors:
-thinks biggest problem was inconsitency, not lack of effort or injuries
-disappointing end to the season, wanted to beat Orlando
-thinks Sam and Brian do a great job communicating to him as a co-captain
-thinks TJ & Calderon situation affected the dynamics of the team
