Chris Paul really likes his new teammates.

"We've got a great group of guys here," he told reporters after Tuesday's practice. But he quickly tossed in a bit of reality.

"I'm just gonna tell you the truth, that doesn't necessarily win games but it makes it great to come to practice every day and learn and compete."

The Thunder have eight new players on the roster and overall it's an interesting mix of young guys like Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Darius Bazley and Terrance Ferguson and proven veterans like CP3, Danilo Gallinari and Steven Adams.

Those last three guys will start for sure, the other two spots could go to several players depending on matchups and then there's Andre Roberson who was full go at Tuesday's practice and is hoping to get back to playing soon. Head coach Billy Donovan plans to wait until at least after today's shootaround in Salt Lake City to announce whether Roberson will be activated and possibly play tonight.

More about all of this, including comments from CP3 in today's Thunder Game Report.
