"Fes is a guy who can get better — if he works at it," said Sloan. "We can't make him do the work. He's got to learn how to work harder."
For his part, Fesenko feels he did well this year personally.
"That was really a turnaround season, like I said it would be in the preseason," Fesenko said. "I was able to finally get (playing) time, and we'll see what happens from there."
His short-term plan for now is to travel to California in the next few days to meet with his new agent, Dan Fegan, and then go from there.
Fesenko says he plans on working on his free throw shooting and conditioning this summer so that he'll be ready to go — wherever he winds up next fall.
