Landing Gasol would be a surprise considering the Thunder have plenty of front-court players. In addition to drafting Mitch McGary, OKC also has Serge Ibaka, Nick Collison, Kendrick Perkins, and Steven Adams under contract for next season. Hasheem Thabeet is also on the team but his contract is not guaranteed for next season.
Telfair, 29, played last season in China. He has a career averaged of 7.4 points and 3.5 assists per games in in the NBA. He was drafted No. 13 by Portland in 2004. The deal is expected to be for the veteran's minimum, which would be $1.31 million.
He last played in the NBA two seasons ago with Toronto and if Telfair signs with the Thunder it will be his eightht team. Telfair has never been with a NBA team for more than two seasons.
