Wish granted, reports Darnell Mayberry of The Oklahoman.
Durant says he's ready to take on the move full time.From an individual perspective, Durant's numbers should shoot up: his field goal percentage will be much better, adding a perimeter player will eventually space the floor more for his excellent slashing skills to take shape, and you'd expect him to earn a few more rebounds on each end. For the team, it's also a smart move long-term: it's a lot easier to find an undervalued two-guard than a power forward. Of late, teams have been allergic to shooting guards in the draft, with Eric Gordon the only true two taken in the top 10 last June. In the immediately (the next two years), OKC should be able to fill the two slot with a serviceable player. Going forward, it'll be easier to nab a high-power two than it would have been to find a four.
"I definitely am," Durant said. "That's my natural position. I've been playing that mostly my whole life. The last game I felt a lot more comfortable at (small forward), guarding (small forwards) and just helping my team out in different areas. So I'm excited."
