New coach Brooks: Focus is on Wizards players, not Durant

WASHINGTON (AP) New Washington Wizards coach Scott Brooks was surprised it took so long to get the question. Almost 15 minutes into his introductory news conference he was asked, "Let's get this out of the way: Are you going to bring Kevin Durant here?"

Brooks was prepared. His preexisting relationship with Durant during their time with the Oklahoma City Thunder generated plenty of questions about the Washington-area native returning home as a free agent, but Brooks didn't take the bait.

"I'm excited about the team, guys," Brooks said with a smile. "We have a great group of guys. I understand the question. But I'm excited about the group of guys we have here. When this season ended, when I was looking around, I knew that this is the place I wanted to be."
