Trading away Paul George and Russell Westbrook in the summer of 2019 was supposed to send the Oklahoma City Thunder into a rebuild.
Instead, led by dynamic playmakers Chris Paul, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Dennis Schroder, the Thunder made the playoffs for the 11th time in 12 seasons.
With the team promoting assistant Mark Daigneault to head coach, as sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski on Wednesday, the focus now turns to free-agent power forward Danilo Gallinari and extension options for Schroder and center Steven Adams, as well as determining Paul's value. The Phoenix Suns have had discussions about acquiring Paul, sources told ESPN on Tuesday night.
Note: The financials in here are based on the salary cap and luxury tax holding at the 2019-20 levels, as expected. Dates are subject to adjustment.
