Royal Ivey – Last offseason, Presti pried Ivey into retirement and gave him his first coaching job. He’s a former Thunder player who was also a teammate of Kevin Durant’s at Texas. Ivey is extremely close with a number of the players and the organization is high on him. Ivey worked with the Thunder point guards during training camp last season, but was a lead assistant for the Blue once the schedule began. With some tinkering expected soon, it’s possible Presti plants him with the Thunder full-time.
