In the wake of Kevin Durant's deleted tweets that slammed his former team and coach, Oklahoma City Thunder general manager Sam Presti responded on Friday by taking the high road and praising Durant's time in Oklahoma City. "I think the only thing I can say to that is just to be consistent with everything that I have said and everyone else from the organization," Presti said. "I, and no one from the Thunder, really has anything negative to say about Kevin Durant, and I think we've been hopefully very open about the fact that we have tremendous appreciation and respect for what he and his teammates and coaches and everybody over his tenure here accomplished, and I really don't think there's anything more to say than that." Durant, responding to a fan who asked why he left the Thunder for the Golden State Warriors, tweeted he didn't like the organization or playing for coach Billy Donovan, along with saying the roster "wasn't that good." Durant apologized for the tweets, calling them "idiotic" and "childish," though he denied intending to post the third-person comments to a separate anonymous account. Durant told USA TODAY Sports on Tuesday he reached out to apologize to Donovan, though Presti said he hasn't heard from Durant and couldn't speak for anyone else in the organization. "I'm not asking people that question," Presti said. "Maybe he has, but I can't tell you that he has."
