The Thunder have been one of the surprise teams in the West during the 2019-20 NBA season. Before the league went into its hiatus in March, OKC was sitting pretty at fourth in the conference with the playoffs not too far away. With the transaction window opening, OKC could look to pick up a free agent or two going into the stretch run. Here are a few names the Thunder should consider.
3. Gerald Green
With Dennis Schroder and Nerlens Noel leading the charge for OKC off the bench, the Thunder could use another punch off the pine that can play the wing. For Green, he has played anywhere from shooting guard all the way up to small ball power forward during his time in Houston. If he is fully recovered from injury, he can step in and guard multiple positions and hit a spot-up three for OKC's bench.
2. Iman Shumpert
OKC likes to go small-ball with both Chris Paul and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander on the court at the same time. With some lineups that can feature both on the court with Schroder, Shumpert can come in and handle point guard duties as well to relieve the other three. Shumpert also guards multiple positions on the court. His defensive prowess can help OKC mightily.
1. Jordan Bell
Bell fits the mold of the modern day small-ball center that can guard multiple positions off the pick and roll. Outside of Noel and starter Steven Adams, OKC does not have much in the size department. Picking up a formidable big man in Bell can help to take pressure off Noel on the bench. Bringing in Bell could be another defensive option for OKC.
