Current Thunder Roster Status

After a highly-impressive 2019-20 campaign in which they proved all their doubters wrong, the Oklahoma City Thunder opted to carry on with their rebuilding phase during the offseason.

The Thunder parted ways with most of their best players from the previous season in Chris Paul (traded to the Phoenix Suns), Dennis Schroder (traded to the Los Angeles Lakers), Steven Adams (traded to the New Orleans Pelicans), and Danilo Gallinari (signed as a free agent with the Atlanta Hawks).

While the Thunder did lose a number of key guys, they were also able to add a few more future draft picks as part of the above trades, which only adds to their massive collection. Needless to say, this team is pretty set for the next few years in terms of young talent coming in via the draft.

Generally a young squad, OKC brought in a couple of battle-tested veterans via trade. George Hill made his move to Oklahoma, while former Philadelphia 76ers big man Al Horford also joined the squad in the offseason. Notably, the Thunder will also be shouldering the former All-Star's mammoth deal, with Horford set to earn a whopping $81 million over the next three seasons.

Other acquisitions made by the Thunder during the offseason include Justin Jackson, Ty Jerome, Darius Miller, and Kenrich Williams. They also added three players in the draft in Aleksej Pkusevski (17th), Theo Maledon (34th), and Vit Krejci (37th).

All eyes will be on Shai Gilgeous-Alexander this season, with the 22-year-old expected to have another huge year following last season's breakout campaign. SGA's current deal will expire at the end of the 2021-22 season, so the 6-foot-6 combo guard could be in line for a massive extension with the Thunder in the near future.

Darius Bazley, Lu Dort, George Hill, and Horford join Gilgeous-Alexander in the starting five for rookie head coach Mark Daigneualt, who was promoted during the offseason following the departure of Billy Donovan.

oklahoma city thunder Team Analysis

Who Did The Thunder Recently Sign?

The Thunder's last free agent signing came in the form of 7-foot-2 center Moses Brown. The 21-year-old signed with Oklahoma City on a two-way contract on December 8.

Brown suited up for just nine games for the Portland Trail Blazers in 2019-20, averaging 1.2 points and 1.6 rebounds in 3.7 minutes per contest.

Brown made his Thunder debut on December 31st in a blowout loss against the New Orleans Pelicans. Brown managed two boards and one block in three minutes of action.

Who Are The Thunder Targeting In Free Agency?

The Thunder didn't make too many moves in the 2020 offseason in terms of signing free agents. As a matter of fact, OKC's only free agent signings came in the form of a couple of two-way contracts.

The Thunder signed 7-foot-2 big man Moses Brown, who played for the Portland Trail Blazers last season. They also brought on undrafted rookie Josh Hall, a 6-foot-9 small forward, to the squad.

Other names that were linked to OKC in the offseason include Davis Bertans, Derrick Jones Jr., and Joe Harris.

Who Did The Thunder Most Recently Trade For?

OKC added a much-needed veteran presence to their roster during the offseason by acquiring former All-Star big man Al Horford from the Philadelphia 76ers.

Along with Horford, the Sixers also sent Theo Maledon, Vasilije Micic, and a 2025 first-round pick to the Thunder in exchange for Danny Green, Terrance Ferguson, and Vincent Poirier.

It is worth noting that Horford is set to earn $81 million over the next three seasons. In his first four appearances for OKC, the 34-year-old averaged 10.8 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 3.5 assists, while also connecting on 2.0 triples on a 38.1-percent clip. Horford was mostly a salary dump for the Sixers.

What Is The Best Thunder Roster Of All-Time?

Since their move to Oklahoma City in 2008, the Thunder have been to the NBA Finals just once. This came during the historic 2011-12 season, which also happened to be the year OKC fielded its most formidable lineup.

2011-12 was the last season the trio of Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden was still with the Thunder. Their frontcourt was manned by the duo of Serge Ibaka and Kendrick Perkins. Thabo Sefolosha, Nick Collison, and Derek Fisher were some of the key guys on the second unit. Daequan Cook, Eric Maynor, Nazr Mohammed, and Reggie Jackson (as a 21-year-old rookie) rounded out the Thunder's lineup that year.

OKC went all the way to the Finals, where they were eventually defeated by the Miami Heat and their infamous Big 3 in five games.

What Is The Thunder's Salary Cap?

According to spotrac the Thunder are estimated to operate with a $122.6 million total cap for the 2020-21 season.

OKC's biggest earner this season is newcomer Al Horford, who is going to pocket a massive $27.5 million. Their second-highest earner is Trevor Ariza ($12.8 million), who seems to have no intentions of suiting up for the Thunder.

For some perspective, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander -- arguably OKC's best player -- is set to earn just $4.1 million in 2020-21.
