SEATTLE, Wash - The Sonics have introduced their top draft picks: Kevin Durant and Jeff Green. Both told a news conference in Seattle they're happy to be in Seattle and looking forward to playing.
General manager Sam Presti says drafting the pair creates a foundation for sustained success in the NBA. Durant was the second pick and Green No. 5. The 18-year-old Durant was the college player of the year as a freshman forward with Texas. Green was the Big East player of the year as a forward for Georgetown.
