Chet Holmgren on what he’s learned about the Thunder and Presti: “It’s a great organization. They know what they’re doing. They have a proven track record of what they’ve done in the past and they have a vision for what they’re going to do in the future.” – 2:19 PM
Jason Anderson @JandersonSacBee
Chet Holmgren isn’t disclosing which teams he has met with or worked out for, but he says based on his own research and discussions he believes the Kings are a “good organization with a bright future.” – 2:16 PM
David Hardisty @clutchfans
Chet Holmgren kept things very close to the vest. The NBA kept the media availability short, too. It ended after 15 minutes and there were still 14 reporters waiting to get their questions answered.
OKC questions definitely dominated the interview. – 2:16 PM
James Ham @James_HamNBA
Chet Holmgren chose not to divulge who he has and hasn’t worked out for or met with in the pre-draft process, but he does like the potential fit next to Domantas Sabonis, a fellow Zag. “I feel like I could work really well with Domas.” – 2:14 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar

Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Chet Holmgren on his perimeter defense “I put a lot of work into my physical tools. I’ve been blessed with tools you can’t teach. I feel like I can hold my own playing defense away from the rim.” – 2:08 PM
