With (point guard D.J.) Augustin traded earlier in the year and Randy Foye signing with Brooklyn in free agency, buzz built about (Semaj) Christon being able to come in as the No. 3 behind Westbrook and Payne. Then, the Thunder signed veteran guard Ronnie Price on a two-year guaranteed deal.
Now, it looks like Christon is either headed back to the Blue, where he was a D-League All-Star in 2014, or overseas again. Christon’s deal is reportedly partially guaranteed for this season for around $543,000. Unless the Thunder gives up his draft rights via trade or by cutting him in camp, his only current path to the NBA is through Oklahoma City.
