“You have to be ready at all times. That’s kind of how my career has always gone, my first two years (in Sacramento) not knowing when I was going to play. Anything can change in one game. In a split second, you can go from not playing to playing.”
McCallum, in the past nine days has either been assigned to or recalled from Austin.
“I’m just using it as an opportunity to play,” McCallum said of his D-League experience. “That’s what it’s there for. I’m going there and getting some games under my belt for times like today. I’m using the Austin team as chance to play a lot of minutes and keep my game sharp. Hopefully it translates to when I get my name called here.”
