Former UConn great Kevin Ollie played for the Thunder last year. You also being from UConn, was Kevin influential at all in you joining the Thunder?
"I got to talk to him a little bit. My agent (Raymond Brothers) knows a couple people here and they just gave me an opportunity."
Did Ollie share any advice about playing for the Thunder?
"He just said to come up here and work hard, that it's a great organization and a defensive-oriented team."
You and Kevin Durant are both from Maryland. How well do you know each other?
"We actually played on the same AAU team together, the D.C. Blue Devils. I've known Kevin for a while."
Did you guys ever lose?
"We lost once out in Vegas for the championship."
Was it Durant's fault?
