OKC Thunder interested in Alexis Ajinca?


According to a report by BasketUSA, the Oklahoma City Thunder may be interested in signing French center Alexis Ajinca.

This leaves only 16 days to NBA franchises to sign but the possibility exists and is increasing as the player string of good performances (10.7 points, 6.9 rebounds in 19 minutes) at the European Championships. According to L’Equipe, recruiters sent by Oklahoma City and Utah also take a very attentive to the performance of the pivot eye.

Ajinca played in the NBA for three seasons from 2008-2011 for Charlotte, Dallas and Toronto. For his career, he’s averaged 3.1 points and 1.6 rebounds per game.

Ajinca is 7-foot and 220 pounds. The idea that the Thunder would be interested in signing him may point to the team not being sold on Hasheem Thabeet as the backup center in the future.

Considering that the Thunder also drafted Steven Adams this year, the possibility of bringing on Ajinca is not too exciting, also considering that the Thunder should be going smaller and smaller.
