Andre Roberson and now Thunder GM Sam Presti have both expressed interest in a new deal and will work towards common ground to keep the defensive stalwart in the fold.
Roberson is an important part of OKC’s terrific defense, so it’s no surprise to see him surface as an early priority for the Thunder. He’s a restricted free agent, and while a team could throw crazy money his way after a strong playoff showing, it’s likely that he returns to the Thunder. It was a career-best season for Roberson, who can be a fantasy asset thanks to his output in steals and blocks. Unfortunately his putrid free throw shooting makes him tough to roster unless you’re already kissing that category goodbye.
