It’s another quiet offseason in OKC as payroll problems led to them letting their sixth man walk.

All they have to show for the offseason is a role player in Fisher and their draft picks.

I love the Thunder’s draft though, although it won’t pay off for years.

Adams is a freak of nature but has work to do, Jerrett is a talented stretch 4 and Roberson is a great rebounder. The Thunder’s D-League team will be stacked but overall it is another disappointing offseason for a team so close to winning a title.

However the Thunder sticks to their plan on building through the draft and do it as well as any franchise. If a guy like Jeremy Lamb can replace Martin, then the Thunder won’t miss a beat.

That’s a big if though at this point.

Grade: C
