Raymond Felton Returning to Thunder on One-Year Deal

  • Raymond Felton Reportedly Agrees to Re-Sign with Thunder on 1-Year Contract

Felton's new contract is for $2.4 million and puts the Thunder's combined payroll and luxury tax over $300 million. The Thunder reached the plateau after signing backup point guard Raymond Felton to a one-year deal.

On Tuesday, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Oklahoma City Thunder have committed to bring back Raymond Felton for another season. ESPN's Bobby Marks, a former general manager, called it "an historic threshold" to cross. The Lakers, feeling that George would sign this summer as a free agent, opted not to pay that price, and he was instead sent to the Thunder in exchange for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.

Including the $150 million National Basketball Association salary ceiling, the OKC will walk out for the start of the season with a combined value of $300m in an unmitigated disaster.

Also under contract for next season are Alex Abrines ($5.5 million), Patrick Patterson ($5.5 million), Kyle Singler ($4.99 million), Terrance Ferguson ($2.1 million), and Dakari Johnson ($1.4 million).

By stretching Melo's contract, the Thunder stand to save nearly $120 million between payroll and luxury tax payments.

The Thunder traded James Harden in 2012, at least in part, due to salary and luxury tax concerns.

Last season, Anthony averaged a career-low 16.2 points, 6.5 boards, and 3.0 assists in 78 starts for the Thunder.

George, a five-time All-Star, was originally selected by the Pacers with the 10th pick in the 2010 NBA Draft.

"I'm not sacrificing no bench role".

However, most of the deep-dive National Basketball Association talk surrounding the Thunder right now revolves around the financial implications involved in all of their maneuvers. The 34 year-old National Basketball Association journeyman averaged 6.9 points, 2.5 assists, 1.9 rebounds and 1.0 3-pointers in 16.6 minutes per game.
