Scouting report
Do you consider yourself a tastemaker or pioneer culturally in the sense that you represent Montreal while playing in the NBA? Luguentz Dort: Definitely. I just feel that, one, I’m a French speaker and I represent Montreal just from that. And I’m Haitian-Canadian. … The Haitian community is big in Canada, and wherever I go, I always have that with me. Not only do I say that I’m Canadian, but I also say that I’m Haitian. And so I always carry that wherever I go.
What impact did Chris Paul have on the Thunder when he was here? Luguentz Dort: He has a lot. (He was) especially on me my first year because I was so new to everything — honestly, to the level of the competition, the way to approach games, doing scouting of the other players and all that. So he really taught me a lot, and it was good to have a vocal leader like that in my locker room the first year. I’m so grateful to have had Chris Paul my first year.
What will the Thunder look like as a whole when a healthy Chet Holgren is added to the mix? Luguentz Dort: Oh, it’s going to be different! He’s so huge around the paint, and he can stretch the floor defensively. And it’s going to be hard to finish over him because he’s so tall and he’s such a good shot blocker. And offensively, he can shoot the ball and can roll as well, so it’s going to be tough to guard him.
