Shai Gilgeous-Alexander knows the Oklahoma City Thunder aren't where they want to be. But the Thunder star has faith that his team is headed in the right direction.

Gilgeous-Alexander said he trusts Oklahoma City GM Sam Presti to get things turned around.

“It’s always easy to trust someone when they haven’t given you a reason not to trust them. It’s always easier to trust someone when they tell you something and it happens. And that’s been my relationship with Sam so far," Gilgeous-Alexander said. "Everything he’s told me has happened, and he’s never lied to me … It’s easy to work — well, it’s crazy that basketball is work — but it’s easier to play basketball and put your all into every day and believe in the future when it’s a guy like that running the show."
