Monday Thunder Notes: Updates On Ivey, Durant & Roberson

Posted: Updated:

Monday has been a busy day for Oklahoma City.

Here's news and notes as the Thunder prepares to face the Atlanta Hawks on Monday night.

Ivey Heads East:

Far east.  Thunder reserve guard Royal Ivey saw his 10-day contract expire recently, and instead of hanging around for another, the 10th-year guard and former Texas Longhorn will sign with a team in China.  That's per an Anthony Slater tweet from Monday morning.

The Thunder was 7-0 in the 10 days with Ivey on the roster.

Durant Wins Again:

In what comes as no surprise, Kevin Durant was named Western Conference Player of the Week on Monday. 

Durant led OKC to three wins during a 4-0 week (didn't play in the 101-83 win over the Celtics) while averaging a league-leading 38.0 ppg.  KD also averaged 8.7 rebounds and 6.3 assists. Durant collected a triple-double with 32 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists during a 103-91 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Jan. 25.

This is the fourth time this season Durant has won the award.  Portland's LaMarcus Aldridge has three.  

Roberson's Travels Continue:

Rookie wing Andre Roberson was sent to the Tulsa 66ers on the D-League on Monday.  Roberson has been up and down frequently in the past month as the Thunder organization looks to secure their promising prospect plenty of playing time. 

Tip tonight against the Hawks is set for 7 p.m. at Chesapeake Arena. Keep it here for full postgame coverage.
