    He isn’t the defender that Andre Roberson is but is a better offensive player. Wonder how the Thunder will go about those 2.

    If Durant leaves then all bets are off and OKC is just another average team in the NBA. If Durant stays then they look to be going small ball with the addition of Oladipo who can guard multiple positions. If Durant leaves then Oladipo will just be another guy making tons of money and stuck in Oklahoma. I’m really hoping Durant stays. I hate when good players leave teams just because they think they can win elsewhere by teaming up with other guys and leaving the city high and dry. OKC had GS on the ropes this year. Maybe with Oladipo they can get it done next year. Good luck to them.
