The OKC Thunder are on the brink of their most anticipated season since 2017. With one of the best young cores in the NBA, many have predicted the Oklahoma City Thunder to take a massive leap up the tough Western Conference standings.

Davis Bertans has been a short-stint sniper from beyond the arc; after drafting Cason Wallace with the 10th overall pick, he looks to have the juice to play right away, and after many summers of courting him, Vasilije Micic finally signed with the Thunder.
