Kerr calling out Presti

Posted by Jayda Evans

Many pointed out the obvious connections in Sonics GM Sam Presti's trade moves this season. He was mentored by Cleveland GM Danny Ferry and Presti came from San Antonio, so it was little coincidence that he worked deals with both teams to give vet Kurt Thomas a chance at a playoff run (Spurs) and dump pricey contracts (Wally Szczerbiak) and malcontent Delonte West on the Cavs.
