COLE ALDRICH

Ht.: 6-11

Wt.: 245

Pos.: Center

School: Kansas

Years pro: Rookie

What to watch for: Rebounding and interior defense will be his calling card. How fast will he figure out how to excel in those areas on the NBA level?

NICK COLLISON

Ht.: 6-10

Wt.: 255

Pos.: Forward-Center

School: Kansas

Years pro: Six.

What to watch for: Can he avoid the injury bug? Collison's season got off to a slow start last year because of nagging injuries. And minor knee surgery this summer won't help avoid a repeat occurrence.

DAEQUAN COOK

Ht.: 6-5

Wt.: 210

Pos.: Shooting guard.

School: Ohio State.

Years pro: Three.

What to watch for: Catch-and-shoot skills. If Cook proves he can provide relief with perimeter shooting, there might be a spot for him on the long-term roster.

KEVIN DURANT

Ht.: 6-9

Wt.: 230

Pos.: Small forward

School: Texas

Years pro: Three.

What to watch for: Minutes played. Durant has had a whirlwind summer, and nothing matters this preseason as much as rest for the face of the franchise.

JEFF GREEN

Ht.: 6-9

Wt.: 235

Pos.: Small forward-Power forward

School: Georgetown

Years pro: Three.

What to watch for: An enhanced skill set. Ideally, as one of the most versatile threats for the Thunder, Green will return as a better shooter, ballhandler and post-up player.
