2007 Pre-Draft Scouting Report by Matthew Maurer

Assets
Athletically, Durant is in rare company as his wingspan, mobility, quickness, and leaping ability have few peers … Great in transition and on the fast break where he finishes with flair … Excellent feel for the game and confidence allow him to make the game appear effortless … Has the ability to catch and shoot off screens with ease … Has legit NBA three point range that he hits with regularity … Runs the court with the speed of a guard … Defensively he has all the physical tools to develop into an exceptional defender … Blessed with quick hands, length, lateral quickness and good natural instincts … Soft hands allow him to catch any pass thrown to him in the post … Back to the basket moves are quite advanced and are executed with great speed and solid post footwork … Ball handling ability enables Durant to gain separation from most defenders … Perimeter shooting has no limitations as he has no trouble converting from mid-range with his feet set or off the dribble … Excellent rebounder when out of position as he's capable of grabbing boards that would normally be out of reach for even the most athletic of players … Leadership skills have really blossomed this year as he took a young Texas team on his back giving Kansas a solid run in the Big 12 final and into to the NCAA tournament … Above average shot blocker capable of disrupting shots … Explosive scorer who is capable of going through dominating stretches during games that leave opposing teams shell-shocked … A player with out of this world potential ...

Liabilities
Double teams have proven to trouble him as he doesn’t always read them quick enough … While he is unselfish, he lacks the passing ability to create for his teammates … To his credit he isn’t a terribly poor passer but certainly doesn’t stand out at this point in his career … Defensively he is improving and showing a willingness to improve, but still needs to work on his perimeter defense in terms of his anticipation skills and footwork … Has a tendency to bite on fakes when going for the block, so improvement on his timing and patience will eliminate this … Like most freshmen in college Durant will need to add more weight and body strength. He probably will always be on the slim side due to his narrow chest, but it shouldn't hinder him much except finishing inside … Doesn’t always take full advantage of mismatches, often Durant will settle for the outside jumper, granted it's not a horrible alternative … Body strength doesn’t allow him to finish after contact … Despite being such a dominate offensive force, Durant can go through stretches of games where he appears fatigued and won’t demand the ball … Gets pushed out rather easily on rebounds due to his body strength … Although not a major flaw, it should be noted that Durant operates primarily on the right side of the floor … Ball protection will need to be worked on as he can get careless with the ball …

Quoting Matt Havlicek:
Durant could be the future of the NBA. he has a lot of the same moves as Larry Bird and Michael Jordan. It is a good move by the Sonics to start him at shooting guard.

Good Comparison to Bird I think they are very similar but I think he is a little behind the Bird man right now.
