Austin Rivers Could Become ‘Total Player’?

The two questions about (Austin) Rivers before the draft were what position he’d play – point guard or shooting guard – and whether his cocky persona was a plus or a minus.
(Hornets coach Monty) Williams says he doesn’t know what position Rivers is yet. As for cocky, Williams says he’s seen nothing in Rivers’ personality that is counter-productive.
“He’s coachable. A lot of the things that are out there about Austin kind of make me laugh,’’ Williams said.
“I call it game-winning attitude. He’s got that. He’s not afraid to make those game-winning plays. What I’m trying to get him to do is make those same game-winning plays on defense. If he improves in that area, he’s going to be a total player.’’
