    I'll be curious to see if the Thunder try to dump salary this summer if the team doesn't win the title(or get to the Finals). They're basically on the hook for nearly the same amount of payroll next year. Felton comes off the books and Noel and Patterson have player options, but otherwise everyone else of importance is signed for at least one more season. I'm pretty sure they'll look to get rid of Roberson who'll be in the last year of his deal. I just can't see OKC paying the same amount in luxury tax next season if they don't have anything to show for it.

    They were one of the teams that managed to make money in 2017 while also paying the tax. So they must have a decent net profit compared to other teams.

    Their current ownership has pretty deep pockets, and have indicated they aren’t concerned with the tax. They didn’t bat an eye on resigning George and giving an extension to Grant this summer. And they didn’t dump Anthony outright, but picked up Schoeder’s salary. As long as they continue to make decent runs in the playoffs, I think they aren’t going to worry too much. They’ve got a lot of good young players, so they likely let Roberson and Patterson walk in two years.
