Oklahoma City Thunder Roster Report 2008-10-10

Oklahoma City Thunder Roster Report 2008-10-10

Russell Westbrook, G, 6-3, UCLA -- Defensive-minded combo guard who the Sonics hope will develop into a defensive stopper.

Serge Ibaka, F, 6-10, Republic of Congo -- Talented but unpolished front-court player who the team will keep in Europe and continue to develop. Pick acquired from Phoenix.

D.J. White, F, 6-9, Indiana -- A good rebounder who can shoot and play with his back to the basket. Gives the Sonics another scoring option inside. Acquired from Detroit by the Sonics trading their 32nd and 46th picks.

Devon Hardin, C, 6-11, California -- A long, athletic player who can block shots and potentially develop into a defensive presence inside for the Sonics.


--Now with his fourth team, Desmond Mason understands his role with the Thunder. The Oklahoma State product has returned home, and is one of the few veterans that will provide leadership for a young team in Oklahoma City. "Now I'm at the point where I'm starting my ninth season," Mason said. "So along with being a contributor on the floor, it's also time for me to be a teacher as well. I think that's what the coaching staff and the general manager want me and Joe (Smith) to do."

--The Thunder begins a four-game preseason road trip out west by traveling to Billings, Mont., on Wednesday to face Minnesota. Oklahoma City also faces Sacramento, Golden State and Houston on the road swing before playing their first home game at the Ford Center against the Los Angeles Clippers on Oct. 14.

"Billings, Montana?" said Oklahoma City forward Jeff Green about the trip. "Montana is the Northwest. Mountains. Snow. That's about it. I think we have a game there, right? "We just know the Thunder is coming to Billings, Montana and hopefully we'll have a lot of fans there."
