The deadline is now about 1 1/2 hours away.
But it’s beginning to look like the Thunder will stand pat. GM Sam Presti holds firm in his approach that he won’t make a move unless it absolutely makes the team better, either via a young player that he likes and feels can grow with the team or a deal that will further improve the team’s cap situation by adding more future flexibility.
Presti just finished speaking with the media right before the end of practice, where I am currently sitting inside the teams training facility watching the players shoot their customary post-practice free throws.
I’ll post the comments from Presti soon and will follow up with comments from coach Scott Brooks, Kevin Durant and Nick Collison. Chris Wilcox and Joe Smith are not at practice today.
