Oklahoma City Thunder Notes, Quotes 2009-02-20

Oklahoma City Thunder Notes, Quotes 2009-02-20
--Kevin Durant put on quite a show during the Rookie Challenge at All-Star weekend, scoring a record 46 points and taking home MVP honors as the Sophomores won 122-116 on Saturday. Thunder teammates Jeff Green (Sophomores) and Russell Westbrook (Rookies) were also in the game.

"I was just thinking about the guys who won this trophy and I was blessed to be in their company," Durant said. "And I was excited that we won the game, first. And to be celebrating here with my teammates Jeff and Russell, it was a great experience for me."

Durant also won the inaugural H-O-R-S-E competition during the weekend.

--The Thunder might not be done dealing before Thursday's trade deadline. The team still has five first-round choices in the next two years and significant cap space to work with in potential trades.

Oklahoma City can use those picks and/or its financial flexibility in trading with teams looking to dump contracts in these trying economic times. Oklahoma City can still use backcourt depth, especially at shooting guard.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "We just think that he's an addition that fits with what we're trying to do and will help us in the immediate and also in the future." -- General manager Sam Presti, on trading for Tyson Chandler.
