The Oklahoma City Blue begin their fourth season in Oklahoma City after moving from Tulsa. Training camp begins this week, so they released their 2017-18 training camp roster
First thing we see when we glance at the roster: two Oklahoma State Cowboys. The Thunder add Michael Cobbins, who’s played with the Blue in the past. They also added Markel Brown, former Brooklyn Net draft pick. He was in training camp with the Thunder. He was waived on Oct. 11.
Also on the roster is Daniel Hamilton and PJ Dozier, the two players who signed two-way contracts with the Thunder. They can spend up to 45 days with the Thunder but must spend most of the season with the Blue.
Also on the roster are the other waived players from training camp. Rashawn Thomas, a Southeast OKC high grad; Yannis Morin, from France; and Bryce Alford, a UCLA alum.
The Blue drafted five on Saturday in the G-League draft. That led to TJ Wallace, a 6-3 guard out of Pacific University with their first round pick.
Chad Posthumus, Justin Leon and Javon Felix were all added on the local G-League try out.
Chris Wright, Myke Henry and Cobbins all return to the Blue from last season. Hamilton also played with the Blue last season.
Training camp will come and go and the season starts on Friday, Nov. 3 against the Rio Grande Valley Vipers at the Cox Convention Center. The two teams met in the 2017 G-League Western Conference Finals, with the Vipers winning.
Oklahoma City will have some neutral site games this season outside of the annual G-League Showcase. The Blue travels to Wichita, Kansas to play at Intrust Bank Arena on Feb. 28. Then, on March 7, the annual game at the Peake at 11 a.m.We invite you to follow Thunder Digest on Twitter and like Thunder Digest on Facebook. Our Podcast is on iTunes.
