Report: Thunder On The Fence About HC Brooks’ Future

Report: Thunder On The Fence About HC Brooks’ FutureBrian A. Westerholt/Getty Images(OKLAHOMA CITY, Ok) --  The Oklahoma City Thunder are going to seriously evaluate whether to retain head coach Scott Brooks, according to Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski. Brooks' contract is guaranteed through the 2015-2016 season with Oklahoma City, with a team option for the season after. Brooks has led the team since 2008. In a season where the Thunder played a portion of the season without Russell Westbrook and most of the year without Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City finished 45-37 and missed the playoffs due to a tiebreaker with the Pelicans. Westbrook returned from injury and had a career season, eventually winning the NBA scoring title. However, Westbrook said the title "means nothing" because he would "rather be in the playoffs than win the scoring title." Wojnarowski reports that Florida University head basketball coach Billy Donovan would be a heavy favorite to replace Brooks if the team were to go in a different direction.

Former Utah Jazz Center Enes Kanter Rips the Organization

Former Utah Jazz Center Enes Kanter Rips the Organization Brian A. Westerholt/Getty Images(SALT LAKE CITY) -- After spending the first 3 1/2 seasons with the Utah Jazz, center Enes Kanter is playing some of the best basketball of his career since being traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Kanter is thoroughly enjoying playing for a new team. "I love it," Kanter said of his change of scenery. "It's a team I've never experienced before and I actually like playing basketball there. I'm just so comfortable and everything is in the right place. I'm just really happy to be there." The number two overall pick by the Jazz back in 2011, Kanter played solid basketball, but never quite lived up to expectations. But with the Thunder, he's averaging a career-high 17.6 points and 10.8 rebounds per game, also a career-high. "I think the difference is, I like playing basketball there," Kanter said. "I think that's the most important thing. I never liked playing basketball before in my NBA career and this is the first time I felt like playing basketball there, for my team, for the fans, for my teammates for my coaches, for everybody. So, that's the first time." Kanter will be a restricted free agent at the end of the season. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright ? 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Westbrook Shines in Thunder Win Over Hornets

Westbrook Shines in Thunder Win Over Hornets Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(CHARLOTTE) -- Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook led all scorers with 33 points in Oklahoma City's 110-103 win over the Hornets Saturday night. Westbrook, who has been on a tear as of late, also added 10 assists and seven rebounds to his stat line. With Kevin Durant resting a sore foot, the Thunder finally got a look at the team's new assets they acquired at the trade deadline. Backup point guard D.J. Augustin added 12 points off the bench and center Enes Kanter had 10 points and 13 rebounds. "We feel confident with what we have as a unit, especially with the great pieces we have," Westbrook said. "Once we get everybody healthy and rolling we are going to be tough to beat. For now we have to come in every night and take care of business." The Thunder are on a five-game win streak.

Pistons Acquire Reggie Jackson

Pistons Acquire Reggie Jackson Brian A. Westerholt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Detroit Pistons acquired Reggie Jackson from the Oklahoma City Thunder as part of a three-team deal that also included the Utah Jazz. The Thunder will receive forward Kyle Singler and guard D.J. Augistin from the Pistons and forward Steve Novak and center Enes Kanter from the Jazz. The Jazz get center Kendrick Perkins, forward Grant Jerrett, draft rights to Tibor Pleiss, a protected future first-rounder from the Thunder, and a Pistons second-round pick. The 24-year-old Jackson has had his minutes cut ever since the Thunder acquired Dion Waiters in January. That caused Jackson's agent to request a trade. When Jackson heard the new he tweeted, "Crying tears of joy #godisgreat." Jackson is averaging 28 minutes, 12.8 points, four rebounds and 4.2 assists per game this season.

Durant Explains His Critical Comments of the Media

Durant Explains His Critical Comments of the Media Oklahoma City Thunder/NBA(OKLAHOMA CITY) -- Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant explained Tuesday why he made critical comments about the media over the past weekend.Durant was asked Saturday about the job security of his head coach Scott Brooks. That prompted the reigning league MVP to snap saying, "You guys really don't know s---." That response created a negative storm of attention toward Durant who had previously, for the most part, been very mild-mannered when talking with the press. Durant met with reporters Tuesday to try and clear the air."I had a moment," Durant said. "Everybody in life has moments. You had one for sure before, but it's not broadcasted like mine. I was more so trying to take up for my teammates, my coach and other guys in the league that gets scrutinized and I don't like. Maybe I should shut up about it. I had one moment. What made me more mad than anything I was told I bite the hand that feeds me. I don't know what that means. I really don't know what that means. I wish someone would explain it to me. But I don't remember none of you guys being there when I was 8 years old and putting in that work, the nights when I'm in here putting in that work in. So I don't really understand what that one means. But, hey, I gotta roll with it. That's a part of it. I was told I shouldn't cry 'cause everybody been through it. So I'm going to shut up."The 26-year-old Durant has played in 26 games this season averaging 25.9 points, 6.6 rebounds, four assists, and one block per game.

Russell Westbrook Named All-Star Game MVP

Russell Westbrook Named All-Star Game MVP Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook was named NBA All-Star Game MVP. The electric Westbrook posted 41 points for the West in a 163-158 victory in Madison Square Garden. More than 17,000 people witnessed a display of incredible offense as the 6'3" point guard put up 27 points in the first half, an NBA record, and fell one point short of breaking Wilt Chamberlain's All-Star Game record of 42, set in 1962. "Moments like this [are] what you dream about as a kid growing up," Westbrook said. "Especially in the Garden, in the Mecca of basketball." For the East, LeBron James led a valiant effort with a 30-point performance, but Westbrook's night would prove to be too much. "He's an unbelievable talent in our league," James said. "His motor, his athleticism, his demeanor about how he approaches the game - it's all great. He showcased that on a big stage." Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Kevin Durant Defends Scott Brooks, Not a Fan of the Media

Kevin Durant Defends Scott Brooks, Not a Fan of the Media Oklahoma City Thunder/NBA(NEW YORK) -- Oklahoma City Thunder All-Star Kevin Durant is tired of people asking about his head coach Scott Brooks job security. Durant told reporters in New York on Saturday that they don't know what they're talking about in regards to that situation and even told them what questions they should ask instead. "You guys really don't know s---," Durant told reporters when asked about Scott. Brooks is in his seventh year coaching in Oklahoma City and has a 321-195 record, but the Thunder only have one NBA Finals appearance to show for it. "To be honest, man, I'm only here talking to y'all because I have to," Durant continued. "So I really don't care. Y'all not my friends. You're going to write what you want to write. You're going to love us one day and hate us the next. That's a part of it. So I just learn how to deal with y'all." Durant was voted the MVP last year and beat out LeBron James, but said on Friday that the media has too much power when it comes to voting. "Yeah, I think media and guys get too much power to vote on stuff that quite frankly I don't think you really know a lot about [or] as much as we know about it," Durant said. "So, yeah, we play against these guys every single night. We battle against these guys. We know what they say on the court. We know how they handle their teammates. We know how they approach the game and our vote should count. Our opinions should count. Like I said, I don't think you guys know as much as we do, and I don't see why you have more power than we do." Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Westrbrook Leads Thunder Past Spurs, 114-106

Westrbrook Leads Thunder Past Spurs, 114-106 Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(SAN ANTONIO) -- No Kevin Durant? No problem for the Oklahoma City Thunder were able to top the San Antonio Spurs 114-106 thanks in large part due to point guard Russell Westbrook. Westbrook dominated on Thursday as he scored a game-high 34 points, pulled down five rebounds, and dished out 11 assists. "You've just got to rally behind him," said Thunder guard Anthony Morrow. "He's a leader, natural born. He comes out there, he plays hard." Second-year center Steven Adams had one of the best games of his career as well, as he scored 16 points, pulled down a career-high 15 rebounds, and blocked three shots. Forward Serge Ibaka also added 21 points. "I thought they outplayed us almost in every facet of the game," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. "When somebody retrieves 50 percent of their shots, you can't say you're focused or playing competitive in any way, shape or form." Spurs guard Manu Ginobili scored 11 points, had seven rebounds, and dished out 13 assists in the loss. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio
