Oklahoma City Thunder fans got some great news today. Newly signed, Nenad Krstic, has received his work visa, clearing the path to play with the team as early as tomorrow night, against the New York Knicks, at home in the Ford Center. Whether Krstic gets to play tomorrow is another story, that decision will remain solely with the coaching staff.
If I had to guess though, I would bet that the coaching staff will get Krstic some floor time, if only 10-12 minutes. He's been practicing with the team and is reportedly ahead of where the coaching staff thought he would be at this point. Coach Scott Brooks has said that his shooting range extends to near the three point line, and he's a much better passer than expected. So Thunderfans can look forward to both of those being factors for opening up the floor offensively. Keep your eyes peeled tomorrow night for #12, although he'll be hard to miss. After all, Nenad is a 7 footer.
