The Oklahoma City Thunder, who just acquired Kelly Oubre Jr. are looking to flip him for a first-round pick, league sources told HoopsHype. He’s entering the final year of his contract this season.
Executives believe the Thunder will continue to explore the trade market on their veterans, including Steven Adams. With Al Horford reportedly on his way to the Thunder, Adams could be on the move sooner than later.
