The Oklahoma Thunder are still one step away from getting over the massive championship hump in front of them. After having a draft night that was far from spectacular, the roster looks like it will have again become less loaded and some starting changes are in the future.
1. Russell Westbrook
2. Reggie Jackson
The point guard position seems to be the only one that OKC has set in stone. Russell Westbrook will be running the show as usual while one of the best backup points guards in the league, Reggie Jackson will be there to give Russ his relief minutes.
1. Jeremy Lamb
2. Andre Roberson
With Caron Butler and Thabo Sefolosha heading towards free agency, OKC could find themselves in severe need of a solid shooting guard. It’s looking like Lamb will be the starter unless they retain or add a free agent. Either way, the depth at this position for the Thunder is pretty shallow.
1. Kevin Durant
2. Perry Jones
3. Josh Huestis
Not much will change at small forward for the Thunder outside of the addition of Josh Huestis. Unfortunately for Huestis, he will have to sit behind Kevin Durant and Perry Jones, so minutes will be hard to come by next season.
1. Serge Ibaka
2. Nick Collison
3. Mitch McGary
Of course Serge Ibaka will still be the final piece of the big three in OKC as the power forward. Outside of Serge, Nick Collison is entering the final years of his career so him and rookie Mitch McGary will share time off the bench behind Ibaka.
1. Kendrick Perkins
2. Steven Adams
3. Hasheem Thabeet
The starting center job is a toss-up after the performance Steven Adams showed during the post-season, but given his veteran leadership and tough nature, Kendrick Perkins will begin the season with his usual position at tip-off.
