Durant Enthused About Longhorns' Pipeline From Canada

Kevin Durant has been keeping a close eye on Canadians Tristan Thompson and Cory Joseph, who are freshmen starring for the Texas Longhorns.

Durant played for Texas during the 06-07 season.

Im very aware (of what they are doing) and Im so happy for them, Durant said before the Raptors defeated his Oklahoma City Thunder in a game in which he was forced to sit.

Ive known Tristan since he committed. When I was there, he came for an unofficial visit so I got to know him a little bit. Hes just grown as a player ever since. As a freshman, hes taken on a major role.

Durant is also enthused about Myck Kabongo, a Toronto native who will attend Texas next season.

Myck I think is going to be a pro. T.J. Ford and D.J. Augustin were down there playing pickup and he held his own (as a 16-year-old), Durant said.

Im excited for him to be a part of the family.

Thompson having a good year also @ Texas.

Joseph got off to a slow start but he has been playing better lately(although its against scrub teams).

Hard to tell right now but probably not(Thompson being the guy of the two who could).

Thompson could be a really good prospect next year draft(2012). I think he still needs work and improvement. Talented though.

Tristan Thompson will make the NBA. All my friends and I knew it when he grew to like 6-9 and left Canada to play in America back when he was in grade 10 and I was in 11. I've been following him for some time now and last time I checked he was projected like top 20 pick in 2012.

Pretty crazy that we went to the same elementary and high school (before he left to USA) together.

He's sick...I haven't seen him play live in a few years but I know he came to LA Fitness many times during the summer...just embarrassed people lol.

I also remember saying that he grew up a Raptors fan, hopefully someday he'll want to come to Canada and play for us. Class Act guy in the league by far.

How is that nobody talks about him?? Myck is a pure PG and great leader, Steve Nash-like leader. You can tell by his interviews. Humble kid, intelligent, High IQ.
