Some quotes from Oklahoma City Thunder GM Sam Presti:
“We’re going to look for every single way to improve the team, both externally and internally… I love the puzzle, love the challenge… There’s a price to the longevity we’ve established. We have to keep grinding to make it last longer.
Our greatest path for improvement is going to be the improvement of our core group”
On Russell Westbrook: “He’s not perfect. None of us are. But I’m not going to let 11 years, or 10 and half years … be overshadowed by a couple of pretty tough months”
Presti on Russell Westbrook: "He’s not perfect. None of us are. But I’m not going to let 11 years, or 10 and half years … be overshadowed by a couple of pretty tough months." Presti started by talking about the success the organization has achieved, largely because of Westbrook.

Presti on review of season & effort to improve.
“We’re not looking to be quick. We’re looking to be rigorous. We’re looking to be the same problem-solving group we have been over the years…pretty methodical. We just don’t have the liberty to be momentary problem solvers.”
