While Paul George is the Thunder’s priority when July 1st and free agency arrives, Raymond Felton’s return to Oklahoma is up in the air.
“I don't know what my future may hold,” Felton said. “I guess we'll see what happens on July 1st, but I will say I would love to be back, be a Thunder, that's for sure.” Even if Paul George leaves, the team is likely to be operating above the $101 million salary cap, meaning there are few options to add to the team outside of the minimum contracts allowed when a team has exceeded the cap. Felton appeared in all 82 games last season, averaging 6.9 points and 2.5 assists per game. His shooting numbers weren't good, but steady (40.6 percent from the field) and impactful depending on the situation and shot type. Among qualified bench players, Felton ranked 10th in the NBA in assist-to-turnover ratio (2.59-to-1) and he was the right backup to Westbrook, as someone who provided stability and professionalism.
