2023-24 Season Overview:

Well, somehow this young and inexperienced Thunder team led by Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and a rookie big man were the No. 1 team in the West. Gilgeous-Alexander was second in MVP voting, and his incredible season was the big boost they needed. Chet Holmgren had a ridiculous rookie season, and he gave them a franchise two-way big man. Meanwhile, second-season forward Jalen Williams gave them a much needed No. 2 scorer, and Josh Giddey has become an excellent point forward. The Thunder’s depth was also excellent, and their coach was a sensei. They may not have won a title this season, but they had an incredible run.

Offseason Goals

The Thunder will remain a title contender, and their four main guys are 25 or less. The real question is should they continue to build via draft picks or start trading assets for veteran players who fit? Honestly, there’s no point in adding waves to calm water.

There are two players who they really need to re-sign: Josh Giddey and Gordon Hayward. The very versatile and offensively talented Giddey is Oklahomad City’s second ball handler and fourth scorer. A three-season, $78 million type of deal would make a lot of sense for him. The Thunder would also be smart to keep Hayward on a cheap contract. They also need to keep at least one of their free agent bigs.

The only real note beyond those is how they handle the 2024 NBA Draft. Thanks to Houston, the Thunder will have a lottery selection – pick No. 12 – and if he is available, they should choose Cody Williams, as they need forward help, another scorer. They would also get to pair him with his big brother.
