As a part of that process, Waiters ventured down to Orlando in early July, both to help teammates like Durant and Anthony Morrow cheer on the Thunder’s Summer League team and also to hone his craft. He worked out with the new coaching staff and initiated the process of getting familiar with the men who will be preparing him for the rigorous 82-game schedule this year. Building bonds off the court is equally important to developing connections in the work place, so Waiters kicked off that process early. “It was best to come down here to be around the team, work out with the coaches and get acclimated to everything,” Waiters explained. “Everybody is cool so far. You talk to them and get to know them and tell them a side of my story that they didn’t know. I get to hear a side of their story that I didn’t know. It’s just communicating and getting to know one another right now.”

Count guard Dion Waiters among the many who think the Thunder has everything it needs to win a championship next season. But it’s up to each player, he said, to return to Oklahoma City at the start of training camp with that mentality. “Everybody got to be on the same accord,” Waiters told The Oklahoman. “We got to come in knowing what’s at stake and that’s a championship. We got the team. If you look at our team, we don’t have (any) missing links. We have everything that we need. And it’s up to us just to go out there, build that chemistry on and off the court and go out there and get it done. It’s not much else to talk about.”

But what bothers Payne most isn’t just that he’s missing out on an opportunity to improve on the floor. It’s that Kevin Durant, Dion Waiters and Anthony Morrow are there watching and he’s not showing off what he can do. “It tells us that they care about us [that they’re there],” Payne said. “But from a personal aspect, I want to be out there playing to show them I’m pretty good.”
