Grant Jerrett - #7 - Power Forward - 6'10" - 235lbs
Wed. July 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jerrett (ankle) re-signed with the Thunder on Wednesday, The Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Jerrett didn't log any time with the Thunder during his rookie season, spending most of the campaign with Tulsa of the D-League. Making 27 appearances with the 66ers, the stretch four posted 15.1 points (on 43.1 percent shooting), 6.1 rebounds, 1.8 treys, and 0.8 blocks in 29.2 minutes. Since playing time will be difficult to come by with the Thunder next season, expect the 21-year-old's game to continue to simmer in the D-League once the regular season tips off in the fall.

News: The Oklahoma City Thunder say they have signed free-agent guard Anthony Morrow. Morrow's agent, Wallace Prather, wrote in a text message to The Associated Press on Saturday that the deal is for three years and $10 million. The Thunder did not disclose terms of the deal Wednesday.
Impact: Morrow, who played for New Orleans last season, has career averages of 10.4 points and 2.5 rebounds per game in six NBA seasons. He helps fill a void created when starting shooting guard Thabo Sefolosha became a free agent and ended up with the Atlanta Hawks. Morrow is a career 43 percent shooter from 3-point range, and similar production would be a major upgrade for the Thunder. He shot 45 percent from behind the arc for the Pelicans last season.
Sebastian Telfair - #13 - Point Guard - 6'0" - 170lbs
Tue. July 15, 2014 | STATS
News: The Oklahoma City Thunder have signed free agent point guard Sebastian Telfair. The Thunder made the announcement in a news release on Tuesday. Terms were not disclosed.

News: The Oklahoma City Thunder say Jones has had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.
Impact: The Thunder said Monday in a news release announcing he had surgery that Jones is expected to be sidelined for four to six weeks before resuming offseason activities. Other details were not revealed. Jones appeared in 62 games during the past season and averaged 3.5 points and 1.8 rebounds per game.
Mon. July 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jones underwent an arthroscopic procedure on his right knee but is expected to be ready for training camp, ESPN's Royce Young reports.
Impact: Prior to the 2012 draft, Jones was considered a medical liability due to his knee issues. While they haven't resurfaced in the NBA, for the most part, undergoing the procedure isn't exactly encouraging. Jones, who appeared in 62 games last season, will be sidelined for 4-6 weeks before returning prior to training camp. He'll enter Year 3 with the Thunder battling with Anthony Morrow and Andre Roberson for minutes off the bench.

News: Morrow has agreed to three-year, $10 million deal with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Impact: Morrow, who played for New Orleans last season, has career averages of 10.4 points and 2.5 rebounds in six NBA seasons. He helps fill a void created when starting shooting guard Thabo Sefolosha signed with the Atlanta Hawks after becoming a free agent. Morrow is a career 43 percent shooter from 3-point range, and similar production would be a major upgrade for the Thunder. He shot 45 percent from behind the arc for the Pelicans last season.
Sat. July 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Morrow signed a three-year, $10 million deal with the Thunder on Saturday, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.
Impact: The sharpshooter opted out of his contract with the Pelicans and will sign on with Oklahoma City, providing the Thunder with one of the best marksmen in the league. In 79 games for New Orleans last season, Morrow averaged 8.4 points while shooting 45.8 percent from the field and 45.1 percent from three. Morrow helps fill the void left by the departures of Derek Fisher and Thabo Sefolosha and should hold down a consistent, shooting-specialist role off the bench. He'll join his sixth NBA team since entering the league out of Georgia Tech in 2008.

News: Jones recorded 20 points (7-11 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, and one block in 28 minutes during the Thunder's 103-98 win versus the Heat at the Orlando Summer League on Friday.
Impact: Jones started at power forward, and he had a great rebound performance following his stinker he put up the game before. He was efficient from the field, and showed solid improvement in the last week of summer-league play. Expect him to go into training camp hungry to earn a consistent role with the Thunder in 2014-15.
Andre Roberson - #21 - Forward - 6'7" - 210lbs
Fri. July 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Roberson posted 12 points (4-5 FG, 4-12 FT), five rebounds, three assists, and four steals in 30 minutes during the Thunder's 103-98 win versus the Heat at the Orlando Summer League finale on Friday.
Impact: Roberson started at small forward, and while he did shoot an awful percentage from the free-throw line, he still managed to have a pretty solid showing. With Thabo Sefolosha signing with the Hawks, it's possible Roberson could be in line to see some time this year if he's able to continue to improve headed into training camp.
Jeremy Lamb - #11 - Guard-Forward - 6'5" - 185lbs
News: Lamb posted 12 points (4-17 FG, 1-9 3Pt, 3-5 FT), three rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 29 minutes during the Thunder's 94-71 loss versus the Pacers on Wednesday.
Impact: Lamb started at shooting guard, and struggled with his shot, especially from deep. This was just a bad night, simple as that. With Thabo Sefolosha signing with the Hawks it's possible Lamb is line to receive a boost in minutes, and it's likely Lamb will continue to see plenty of playing time going forward in the summer league as he looks to improve his game.
Steven Adams - #12 - Center - 7'0" - 255lbs
News: Adams posted 10 points (3-6 FG, 4-10 FT), eight rebounds, one assist, and one block in 35 minutes during the Thunder's 94-71 loss versus the Pacers on Wednesday.
Impact: Adams started at center, and while he nearly recorded a double-double, he committed five turnovers. He was efficient from the field, but this wasn't his best showing. It's possible that his workload will be eased as the summer league continues, but then again he could continue to see considerable time as he looks to build confidence going into his sophomore season.
News: Jones posted five points (2-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist, two steals, and one block in 22 minutes during the Thunder's 94-71 loss versus the Pacers on Wednesday.
Impact: Jones started at power forward, and struggled for his second straight game. On top of shooting a pitiful percentage from the field, he also committed four turnovers. Still, expect him to see considerable time going forward in the summer league.
Andre Roberson - #21 - Forward - 6'7" - 210lbs
News: Roberson recorded nine points (3-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-6 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals, and one block in 29 minutes during the Thunder's 94-71 loss versus the Pacers on Wednesday.
Impact: Roberson started at small forward, and while he did commit two turnovers, he nearly produced a double-double. Expect him to continue to play plenty of minutes going forward in the summer league.

Tue. July 8, 2014 | STATS
News: USA Basketball says Westbrook will not participate this summer so he can rest some previous knee injuries. Chairman Jerry Colangelo says Tuesday that USA Basketball had been communicating with Westbrook since the end of the season and knew his withdrawal was a possibility.

He has had multiple knee operations since, though was able to help the Thunder reach the Western Conference finals. Colangelo says in a statement that the U.S. would love to have Westbrook but that "this is the right decision."
