Statement From Sam Presti

OKLAHOMA CITY, June 24, 2010 – This evening we selected Craig Brackins with the 21st overall pick and Quincy Pondexter with the 26th overall pick of the NBA Draft. At this time we are currently in negotiations to trade our draft rights to Brackins and Pondexter; however, we will not be able to complete a trade until after the moratorium period concludes on July 8th.

With that said, we cannot identify the team that we are negotiating with or discuss any specifics of potential trades. Therefore we will have no comment on these selections until we have completed all trade talks.
