FORD ON MAYBEN: "Tiki Mayben is a man that is blessed with great talent. He does a lot of things that you just don't teach. His ability to handle the basketball is sensational. He has great court vision, he sees plays happen before they happen. He has incredible instincts for a point guard. The best thing about Tiki is that he makes everyone else around him better. I am looking forward to him playing a lot. He can play the point guard or the two-guard position for us."
