(Ricky) Ledo could also be called upon to step up after former sixth man Vince Carter’s free-agent departure to Memphis, leaving a void in instant offense off the Dallas bench. Either way, the 21-year-old says he’s ready to rise to the occasion in Year 2.

“It’s just a confidence issue,” Ledo explained. “Last year, it was a different feeling. Now, I feel more comfortable and I had a year under my belt to get back to my game shape and get back to form. … I can be a valuable asset to the team. They made a good pick in me.

“Just my overall game. I can pass the ball, I can play one through three and just keep pushing it, being a young person who just keeps working hard. It’s a man’s game and I had to work on my body, get stronger and overall just slow everything down and just take what the defense gives you. Just take what they give you, don’t be in a rush, wait for my screens, wait for my player to get hit and just come off screens aggressive.”
