With the OKC Thunder at max capacity already, the Oklahoma City Thunder did not see any surprise additions on exhibition ten contracts/training camp deals. The OKC Thunder will have to cut three standard contracts before the start of the Regular Season but can use training camp to help determine who those cuts will be.
Sam Presti has already informed us that Victor Oladipo will not actually report to training camp despite his inclusion on the training camp roster. He is one of the three odd men out as he continues to rehab from an injury he suffered a year ago.
