One thing to remember with Sam Presti: This is higher magnitude, but he's not afraid to go off the radar. Look at his recent draft history.

#ThunderCoaching Update @InsideThunder Brooks Fired By Thunder, Billy Donovan May Be Top Candidate insidethunder.com/renners-revela…

Sam Presti will meet with the media tonight after he gets back from California.

Darnell Mayberry

Sam Presti is scheduled to address the media tonight after he returns from California.

Something to note: One of Donovan's former assistants, Mark Daigneault, was hired last year by Presti to coach OKC's D-League franchise.

Russell Westbrook

Everytime I see this I get hyped!! Lol make sure yall check out the new items @barneysny #whynot #fashionking http://t.co/sUZkNyFFA3

Anthony Slater

Scott Brooks has coached all but 13 games in Thunder history. His record: 338-207, a .620 winning percentage that's 20th best all-time.

Royce Young

With his prior relationship with Rob Hennigan, Brooks will almost assuredly become a top candidate for the Orlando Magic as well.

Royce Young

Two names to watch: Billy Donovan and Fred Hoiberg.
