You've been teammates with center Daniel Orton at Kentucky and Orlando and now you're together in OKC.

“Yeah, I go somewhere, I see Daniel Orton (laughing). Everywhere I go, Daniel Orton is right there with me. In the NBA, you never know what happens. It's just fallen that way. I'm happy for Daniel. I'm happy to be here with Daniel. End of the day, we're trying to compete for a job.”

Do you think Daniel looks like Russell Westbrook in the face?

“Yes, and people say I look like Kevin Durant. I'm just trying to get a job.”

Your early thoughts on how you'll defend Russell Westbrook?

“The guy seems like he never stops. I'm just happy to be here, and I'm trying to figure everybody out. They're trying to figure me out, too.”
