  • NewsOK.com: As the BIG3 heads to OKC, Ice Cube is happy being league's 'Pied Piper'

    The BIG3 isn't the brand-new startup league it was when it swung through Tulsa in 2017.

    The professional 3-on-3 basketball league returns to Oklahoma on Sunday for three games at Chesapeake Energy Arena. The games feature several former NBA players, including former Thunder forward Perry Jones. The league bears the slogan, "We're changing the game."

    The last time the BIG3 was in Oklahoma, it was merely three weeks into its inaugural season.

    The BIG3 will split the fifth week of its third season between Kansas City Saturday and Oklahoma City on Sunday. Games will also be broadcast on CBS.

  • NewsOK.com: How the Thunder benefits from having Chris Paul

    The NBA preseason starts in two months. Where will Chris Paul be by then? For the Thunder, it may not matter.

    A rebuild doesn't get completed in a day or even months. When Paul George made his trade request the first week of July, the Thunder pivoted, trading today for tomorrow. Russell Westbrook, a franchise icon, was traded not just because he wanted to play with James Harden, but because the Thunder believed it was the best move for the franchise in that position.

    Trading Paul, 34, is the next move. It won't come as soon as anticipated, as ESPN has reported trade talks with Miami stalling.

  • Fansided: Summer League: Thunder finish 11th, play consolation game vs. Team Croatia

    As if July 11th wasn't already turning into what may forever be known as Terrible Thursday the events of the Summer League ended up adding fuel to the fire. Mid evening the OKC Thunder formalized the trade of Russell Westbrook to the Houston Rockets.

    But, despite winning three of their four contests the Thunder Summer League squad were the only team who amassed three wins but failed to make the eight seeds who move onto the tournament portion of the event.

    The Boston Celtics took the top seed with an unbeaten 4-0 record along with the Detroit Pistons and Minnesota Timberwolves who rank second and third respectively.

  • Bleacher Report: Report: Russell Westbrook Didn't Ask Paul George to Reconsider Trade Request

    The Oklahoma City Thunder broke apart over the past two weeks, and there didn't appear to be much fight to stop it.

    Paul George started the fracture when he requested a trade, which was granted as he joined Kawhi Leonard with the Los Angeles Clippers.

    According to Royce Young of ESPN, Russell Westbrook didn't try to stop his teammate from leaving once the request was put in.

    Westbrook had helped recruit George to sign a long-term deal with the Thunder last offseason, but apparently it wasn't enough to convince him to stay after a third straight first-round exit in the playoffs.

  • Fansided: The end of an era - OKC Thunder trade Russell Westbrook to Houston

    The other shoe has dropped and this one feels like it kicked on the way down. The OKC Thunder have traded their superstar and epitome of the culture and identity of the Thunder --Russell Westbrook to the Houston Rockets.

    The deal centers on Chris Paul returning to offset the financial end of the equation along with first-round draft picks in the 2024 and 2026 seasons (both protected). In addition, like General Manager Sam Presti did with the Paul George trade, he finagled two pick swaps in 2021 and 2025.

    As per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Royce Young, the draft picks Sam Presti has accumulated in five days time is entirely without precedent.

  • Fansided: Commemorating Paul George's top 13 moments as a member of the OKC Thunder

    The Paul George tenure ended out of nowhere. It ended as a shock to everyone. With one tweet in the middle of the night, Paul George's time with the OKC Thunder was over.

    Despite only playing in Oklahoma City for two seasons, we're commemorating those campaigns aptly via 13 moments to match his jersey number.

    Despite Paul George playing in just 156 games for the Oklahoma City Thunder, he still made a huge imprint on the city of Oklahoma City, the State of Oklahoma, and the organization as well as its future.

    While George's tenure ended sooner than expected, it was still one to be remembered.

  • Official Site of the Thunder: Deonte Burton Playing Within Himself, Preparing for 2019-20

    LAS VEGAS -- An open-mouthed smile revealed a toothy grin as the words, "I see you, I see you!" burst forth from Thunder forward Deonte Burton. On the floor at Summer League, there's a little bit less noise and fanfare, little in-game music and limited production.

    Burton's voice carried across the court, not just to the teammate he was hyping up but in through the stands as well. In his second year at Summer League, Burton's voice holds a little bit more weight, even he personally has slimmed down. Toned muscles curl out of the Thunder jersey - Burton is still burly, but fit.

  • Fansided: OKC Thunder 25-7 final frame over Team Croatia punctuates comeback win

    Well, that was exciting. Although just the third match for the OKC Thunder in Vegas a common denominator emerged. In two of the three OKC Summer League games, the club experienced wild swings of momentum.

    The Game 3 outing versus Team Croatia was a reverse of the Thunder's last contest against the 76ers. The latter witnessed the Thunder enter half time up 26 points only to let Philly storm back to tie the game and push it into overtime.

    On Tuesday, it was the Thunder who roared back from a double-digit deficit with arguably their best quarter of basketball in the tournament.
