Rip Hamilton practiced with his new teammates for the third time Sunday but whether he will make his debut in the exhibition finale against the Pacers on Tuesday is unknown.
Coach Tom Thibodeau said he would likely make his decision Monday.
"Each day he gets more and more comfortable," Thibodeau said. "He approaches it well. He comes into work. He gets here early. He's studying hard. He's doing fine so far. Probably [Monday], we'll get another practice under his belt. He looked pretty comfortable today in the scrimmage. That will be the next step for him."
Hamilton said the challenge isn't just learning new terminology but also his new teammates.
"I'm learning more and more about them individually and their games," Hamilton said. "It's different when you're playing against them and you're scouting them and trying to take things away. Once they're your teammates you have to figure out what's good for them and what's not good for them."
