OKLAHOMA CITY — Two-time NBA scoring champion Kevin Durant has a new part-time tutor and a new defender to go up against every day in practice.
Durant spent time after practice Wednesday working with former Minnesota Timberwolves coach Kurt Rambis, who has been visiting Oklahoma City's training camp for most of the past week. Rambis spent time demonstrating moves at the high post with Durant, who has made improving his post-up game a top priority.
During practice, he got introduced to Lazar Hayward, who came over in a trade the previous night with Minnesota.
Coach Scott Brooks told Hayward he'll be guarding Durant most days in practice, and Hayward says he's willing to fight Durant and make him mad if it makes him better.
