The Oklahoma City Thunder entered the 18-19 season with the hope that the All-Star pairing of Russell Westbrook and Paul George could carry the team to a first NBA title. However, after an inconsistent regular season, Billy Donovan's team fell to an all-too-familiar first-round playoff exit.

The Thunder were eliminated by the Portland Trail Blazers, and a 4-1 series defeat was especially disappointing as OKC had swept Damian Lillard and co. during the regular season. While the current roster has plenty of talent, the Thunder are reportedly looking to make big changes this summer, and mainstays such as Andre Roberson and Steven Adams have been linked with exits.

The Thunder will also be looking to bring in new talent, and ahead of a pivotal offseason, here are three players that are being linked with a move to Oklahoma City.


#3 Jodie Meeks

After receiving a 25-game suspension for violating the NBA's Anti-Drug Program, Jodie Meeks was released by the Milwaukee Bucks. The veteran subsequently signed with the Toronto Raptors but played just eight regular-season games due to his ongoing suspension. However, Meeks went on to appear 14 times during Toronto's successful playoff run, and the veteran guard remains one of the better three-point shooters on the market.

As one of the worst three-point shooting teams in the league, OKC remains desperate to add shooters, and The Athletic's Brett Dawson is reporting that Meeks is among the snipers that the Thunder are looking to bring in.

Meeks is a career 37% shooter from three-point range, and the veteran shot at over 40% during both the 13-14 and 16-17 seasons. Meeks would play a catch-and-shoot role with the Thunder.
