3. Wing with size

The Thunder lack size inside, but it can become problematic elsewhere too. SGA is 6’6, but only 180 pounds. He is taller than Jalen Williams and Lu Dort. Dort is the Thunder’s shortest starter at 6’3 but is the heaviest at 215 pounds. Oklahoma City struggles to match up against big forwards too because they do not have the right option.

This does not need to be a superstar. The Thunder would love to add a 6’8 option with length. They are always looking for people who can dribble, pass, and shoot. OKC may be better served targeting a 3-and-D wing, but it will be expensive. Every contender wants size and shooting around their stars, which raises the price of acquiring one.

Oklahoma City likely searches for versatility over size. Being 6’6 does not hurt if the player can guard one through four. The Thunder are always looking for talent and flexibility. Fans should not expect that to change.

Finding an impactful wing willing to come off the bench and play a smaller role is nearly impossible. Oklahoma City needs to open up a starting spot if they choose this route. There will be options available and it could be part of a larger move where Josh Giddey is traded to make room.
