The Oklahoma City Thunder have been pretty busy since June 29 and really have been in the news since then and really haven’t stopped. It started with the Paul George trade and it culminated with the signing of Raymond Felton.
For Sam Presti, this is turning into the Summer of Sam. He’s an immediate leader for Executive of the Year and is filling all of the holes Oklahoma City had last season.
Paul George gives Oklahoma City another legitimate superstar and can now compete atop of the Western Conference and probably the NBA. George is a two-way superstar and can guard 1-3 on the floor. He nails the three at an extremely high clip.
Terrance Ferguson is a lengthy two-guard who hasn’t really seen NBA speeds as he played in Australia last season. However, the Thunder are high on Ferguson and his ability to get to the room, despite his small size of 184 lbs.
Patrick Patterson is almost a perfect fit. Like George, he’s a two-way defender and can also step out and hit the big three from the corners. He’s a super high energy guy that can really give a team some momentum by stepping in and playing sound defense.
Raymond Felton is an okay back up point guard coming from the Clippers. He’s durable and a really good teammate. Oklahoma City has their replacement for Semaj Christon, that is if they choose to let him go.
Now, give us your vote. How do you think the Thunder have done?
