“They're just day-to-day, nothing of major concerns, just soreness,” Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. “They'll be back soon.”

Brooks said Sunday's practice concentrated on condition and execution and positioning on offense and defense.

CAMP VISITORS

Former Air Force and University of San Diego coach Hank Egan, who also has been an NBA assistant with the Cavaliers, Warriors and Spurs, has observed the first three days of Thunder training camp.

On Saturday and Sunday, he has been joined by Kurt Rambis, the former Los Angeles Lakers player and Minnesota Timberwolves coach. Rambis won eight world championships with the Lakers – four as a player, three as an assistant coach and one as a team executive.

“Just picking their brains,” Brooks said. “They're great guys, they love basketball and they love sharing.”

QUOTABLE

“It's great. It's going to get us better, and I'm proof. I've been working out three months here, and there's not too many 46-year-olds who can beat me right now.” – Brooks on the Thunder's new practice facility

TWEETABLE
