The Oklahoma City Thunder had an impressive outing this 2019-20 NBA season despite critics knowing they were in rebuild mode. The Russell Westbrook trade to the Houston Rockets for Chris Paul was one indication. The other was the Paul George move to the Los Angeles Clippers. Regardless, the Thunder made a good account of themselves with CP3, Dennis Schroder and Steven Adams at the front.

And though they pushed the Rockets to the limit, the rebuilding continues. Billy Donovan is no longer around, moving to the Chicago Bulls. Chris Paul is believed to be on the way out as OKC looks to use the money due to the veteran guard in taking in talent. Could there be more players on the block?

HoopsHype suggests Shroder and Adams as two players who could be offered to other teams. The two were pillars last season so trading them away may be questionable to the eyes of many.

Schroder managed to put up decent numbers. The 27-year-old guard averaged 18.9 points, 4.0 assists and 3.6 rebounds in 65 games. These were jacked up numbers compared to his previous season with the Thunder after a look at Basketball-Reference. And OKC is due to get more out of him if Paul is dealt out.

Shroder is heading into the final year of his deal with the Thunder. He will make $15.5 million next season before becoming a free agent in 2021.

Adams, the workhorse that the Thunder has had for so long, could have suitors. He is also only 27-years-old though his game took a dip during the 2019-20 season. In 63 games, he averaged 10.9 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists.

Of the two, Adams could be the one that may be dangled if the Thunder can get someone better. He is owed $27 million for the next NBA season before becoming a free agent after next season. Aside from him, only Nerlens Noel is the legitimate center in the Thunder roster as of this writing.

The chances of both players being dealt out may not be high. It all depends on who will call the shots next season and if there is an intriguing player to trade for. There is also the case of Paul. If he stays on, the fate of Adams and Shroder could hinge on that. The bottom line, the Thunder will move some players because they need the budget to take in players from the free-agent market or via trade/s.
