Durant to Start at SG
Tacoma News Tribune - 09/05 - 11:08 AM EST
According to Seattle beat writer Eric Williams, he believes Kevin Durant will start at shooting guard during his rookie season.
Jeff Green, the Sonics' other lottery pick, will start at small forward or be one of the first players off the bench at that position.
I think Kevin Durant will play the SG position on offense, but defensively, he'll spend more time matched up with some of league's Small Forward. Durant's pretty quick himself, but his freakishly long arms allows him recover against faster, but much smaller players. He need to bulk up more if he wants to consider himself as Power Forward. I think his game is more of an athletic Dirk Nowitzki and his defense reminds me of the early days of Garnett with the Timberwolves.
