Durant highlighted prospect, “HomeGren that can cause big problems.”
Kevin Durant took note of the rising star.
According to a report by local media Yardbaker on the 20th, Kevin Durant, the Brooklyn Nets’ top scorer, paid attention to promising Chat Homegren.
Durant said, “Homgren is a big problem player. Love the tech-filled Big Men that are starting to emerge these days. Chat Homegren or Paulo Vanquero. I worked out with Hommgren once, and he felt that he had a natural sense. It is not easy for a player that big to have such a sense. He loves to play basketball and he loves to compete. He wants to get better and absorbs information. It’s great to be able to work out with him.”
“It’s definitely different when you exercise at a regular gym, not on an NBA court with the players. “You can check the real core of the players,” he said.
Off-season Durant is said to have become close to HomeGren while training. Homegren is a top prospect from Oklahoma City Thunder, who was named second in the 2022 draft. It boasts a great height with 213cm, and its shooting touch is also like a professional shooter. The success rate of three-point shots in college reached 39%.
Homegren suffered a right foot injury during his off-season appearance in August and will not be available this season. However, it is said that he is well worth looking forward to seeing when he is healthy. As Durant praised him so much, he is a homegren who is more expected to perform after his return.
