"I met him one time out in Vegas. He was there for USA Basketball," Durant said. "And I've heard good things about him. I'm sure we'll click pretty quickly. But I don't have a relationship with him. I don't know him. He didn't recruit me at Florida, so I don't really know him too well. I'm just going off of what guys that played for him said. And I'm looking forward to meeting him and getting a feel for him myself." ESPN.com

"I reached out to Chandler Parsons and Mike Miller, and they just told me great things," Durant said. "Mike told me that he's real detailed and prepared. Every day is just another day for him to get better. And he's always looking to learn. I was excited when I heard that because that's the type of player I am, and I'm looking forward to learning from somebody else. It should be a good relationship. Like I said, I want to get a feel for him myself and for him to get a feel for me and just work from there." ESPN.com

Connecticut's Kevin Ollie had negotiated too enormous of a buyout into his contract – $5 million – and that was a non-starter for the Thunder. Ollie had a unique history and connection with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, but Donovan has a longer, sturdier coaching pedigree. Yahoo! Sports
