Report: Thunder to decline team option on Dort, negotiate new deal

1 month ago   |   By Sportsnet

The Oklahoma City Thunder are reportedly declining the $1.9 million team option on forward Lu Dort for the 2022-2023 season, per The Athletic's Shams Charania , making him a restricted free agent and allowing both sides to negotiate a new deal in free agency.
The move allows the Thunder to pen a new deal with Dort this offseason to avoid the 23-year-old going through free agency next year as an unrestricted free agent.
In his three seasons in the NBA with Oklahoma City, the undrafted Canadian has averaged 13.3 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 1.5 assists per game.
