Kevin Durant wishes Maurice Cheeks well

Kevin Durant:

Congrats to the great Mo Cheeks on getting the head coaching Job in Detroit! He will be missed! He will always be a Thunder

It’s nice to see such a great player recognize Cheeks, and it’s really no surprise. Cheeks is affable, and there are strong indications he’s a good assistant coach, the role he held with the Thunder.

My concerns come with Cheeks’ ability to create and implement a system as a head coach, skills he didn’t have to show while working with Durant.
