Durant: Shooting star as shooting guard

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE, Wash. - After his first practice, this much is known about Kevin Durant _ he's going to begin as a shooting guard and he's all but expected to start the opener in Denver on Halloween night.

Coach P-J Carlesimo says the "2" is where Durant is best suited right now, because of his immense talents. Carlesimo says he has the versatility to play four if not all five positions on the floor.

Durant was running with the Sonics second unit during Tuesday's practice, but don't be fooled. Carlesimo says he has a hard time not imagining Durant in the starting lineup on opening night.
