Sam Presti dismissed speculation that Phil Jackson or Jeff Van Gundy could be the next coach of the Thunder.

“To me, it's rubbish,” said Presti when asked about the rumors.

Presti expressed his desire to bring back Scott Brooks.

“As we've said before, Scotty is an integral part of our organization and critical to our success,” Presti said. “And we value him greatly. We're looking forward to having those conversations, as he said, in the coming days. But he's been integral to our success. We wouldn't be in the situation that we're in without him and his commitment to the organization and to our players.”
