Brooks, Presti to discuss future for assistant coaches

Brooks, Presti to discuss future for assistant coaches
Hours after being named the full-time head coach, Scott Brooks didn't reveal his desires for any possible additions to his coaching staff or whether Ron Adams, Ralph Lewis, Mark Bryant and Brian Keefe will all be retained as assistants. Brooks would say only that he and general manager Sam Presti would meet in the offseason to discuss any possible changes.

"Sam and I have a great partnership, and we've had that since I was hired with P.J. (Carlesimo)," Brooks said. "So we will talk about every aspect of our team, how to get it better. But the focus right now is to put our thoughts together, and we will meet as we always do and communicate on what it will take to get our team better."


Before jetting off for summer vacation, Kevin Durant will meet with director of athletic performance Dwight Daub one last time to iron out the details of a strength, conditioning and dietary program that will add muscle to his gangly 6-foot-9 inch frame.

"It's just lifting at least four or five times a week, eating right, eating three or four meals a day," Durant said. "And just making sure that I put it in my hands to wake up early in the morning, eat, go work out, lift weights and keep doing that cycle over and over again, and eventually, I'll add muscle."


Going into his second off-season, forward Jeff Green said he is now more knowledgeable about the do's and don'ts of the summer.

"I'll take a break this year and rest up," Green said. "(Last year), it was only like four or five days before I started playing pick-up. Eventually, it led to workouts and heavy weight lifting. But now it's going to be more of a break, resting my body rather than trying to hurry up and get back into the swing of things."

Green said he'll focus on running, weight lifting and playing as much Basketball as possible when he begins working out, fine tuning his guard skills while also getting bigger.


Shaun Livingston made his first start of the season Wednesday night, replacing Kyle Weaver as the starting shooting guard. Brooks said the move had nothing to do with Weaver's performance but rather getting an extended look at Livingston in a more prominent role.


The Thunder's television broadcast team of play-by-play man Brian Davis and color commentator Grant Long are expected to return for the 2009-10 season, as well as radio voice Matt Pinto.
