Over-the-hill gang: Aaron Brooks, 32; Raymond Felton, 33; Derrick Rose, 28; Ramon Sessions, 31; Rodney Stuckey, 31; Beno Udrih, 35; Deron Williams, 33. Does the Thunder want a retread? Sometimes they work.
Under-the-hill gang: Trey Burke, 24; Tyler Ennis, 22; Yogi Ferrell, 24. Guys who never have done much yet.
Baggage claims: Brandon Jennings, 27; Ty Lawson, 29. Is the Thunder willing to take on a problem child?
Others: Bobby Brown, 32; Shelvin Mack, 27; Brian Roberts, 31; Sergio Rodriguez, 31.
So has the Thunder found a great option in Orlando to be backup point guard next season? Short answer — no. But the thing is, somebody’s gotta do it.
Though fans can get excited about the hope a new player may provide, the experience Semaj Christon has under his belt probably makes him the best choice of the group. Unless Sam Presti can pull a Sam Presti with a trade or a bargain free agent signing, get used to seeing 10-12 minutes of Christon in the regular season.
The Andre Roberson three-year $30M contract not puts Oklahoma City with $125.1M in salary. The Thunder are now $5.8M over the luxury with an early tax bill of $8.9M. The Thunder will have the entire season to reduce (or add) salary.

If the Thunder retain their core players for 2018-19, early projections could see Oklahoma City payroll jump to $150M based on a max contract for Russell Westbrook and Paul George. The Thunder would be a repeater tax team in 2018-19 if they finish in the tax during the current season (2017-18). Oklahoma City were a luxury tax team in 2014-15 and 2015-16.

Nick Collison will re-sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder on a one-year deal, allowing him to play 15 seasons with one franchise before retirement, league sources told The Vertical.
Collison, 36, has been a foundational piece in the Thunder franchise’s rise to contender status in the Western Conference. Collison received interest around the NBA this summer as a reserve center, but finalized a contract to end his career with the Thunder.
Collison was the No. 12 overall selection of Seattle in 2003 out of Kansas and played a leadership role alongside Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant as the franchise moved to Oklahoma City in 2008.
Collison has averaged six points and 5.2 rebounds in his NBA career.
