Thunder GM Sam Presti offered his remarks yesterday during his 2018-19 preseason conference. You can watch it here:
Here are a few areas Presti touches on, as called out by Royce Young:
Sam Presti says the team has never pushed a player to hit a specific date in recovering from injury, and won’t start now by rushing Russell Westbrook to be ready for game one.— Royce Young (@royceyoung) September 20, 2018
Sam Presti said he can’t speak too much to Dennis Schröder’s legal situation but said, “I wouldn’t expect it to be a distraction in any way for him or the team.”— Royce Young (@royceyoung) September 20, 2018
A constant around OKC is shooting, and Sam Presti noted today they would "love for us to have more shooting." He pointed to three ways to improve: 1) make a trade (which would mean giving up players they like), 2) make some shots or 3) smarter shot selection.— Royce Young (@royceyoung) September 20, 2018
Are you encouraged by Presti’s preseason address of the team?
