Thunder notebook: Assistant coaches targeted

Darnell Mayberry Published: June 29, 2009
The Thunder is expected to soon announce at least one new addition to its coaching staff, but two names have been linked to the position.

Former Sacramento Kings assistant coach Rex Kalamian has interviewed for the job, according to a source. J.B. Bickerstaff, the son of former head coach Bernie Bickerstaff, who most recently served under Kevin McHale with the Minnesota Timberwolves, has also received interest from the Thunder.

Kalamian, then an assistant coach/player development coach, served on the same staff as Thunder coach Scott Brooks in Denver during the 2004-05 season. The two also share the same agent, Warren Legarie. Kalamian also worked for the Los Angeles Clippers for nine seasons, the Timberwolves for two seasons and served as a West Coast scout for the Philadelphia 76ers during the 2003-04 season.

Kevin Durant has returned to Oklahoma City to host his first ever basketball camp, which begins today and runs through Wednesday at Heritage Hall High School.

The camp is open to boys and girls ages 7 to 18. Children ages 7 and 8 will participate in a 9 a.
