The 2023 NBA Offseason is upon us! Soon, the news will be flying off the shelf. For the OKC Thunder, many expect it to be a sleepy summer in Bricktown. With a roster that already features one standard pact too many, there is only a little wiggle room for the Thunder this offseason.

The Oklahoma City Thunder are about to embark on Free Agency, which also opens up trade possibilities for the league at large. There will be plenty of moving, shaking, and potentially conference-shifting news. This is a critical period on the NBA calendar for a young Thunder team that hopes to build on their 40-win success from this past season. So what needs to be done this Summer in Oklahoma City?
