San Antonio Spurs second-year player Lonnie Walker IV has been out-playing the competition so far in two games in Las Vegas.

He's averaging 30-points per game (currently second top scorer in Summer League) off of 58-percent shooting.

Not bad for Walker who is coming off a right medial meniscus tear in the team’s annual Silver & Black scrimmage during the preseason and missed the opening 20 games of the season due to injury.

So what has Walker been doing to get himself ready for the new season?

Walker spoke with Basketball Insiders at the Las Vegas Summer League about what he has been doing behind the scenes.

I just been working my tail off. I'm very confident on the way I play.
Just to play my game. Nothing more. Nothing less. Play great defense and play Spurs basketball.
Being under the Spurs' development, it means a lot. Having coach Chip (Engelland), coach Will (Hardy) and Becky (Hammon) as well they been making me work hard.
