The Thunder are on the search for their next small forward. On their current roster OKC has a few players that can play that postion, Anthony Morrow, Andre Roberson, Kyle Singler, Josh Huestis, and possibly Alex Abrines. None of those are great options so today the Thunder added one more player to the competition for the starting job.

No, Chris Wright is not the biggest name on the block but he is a player that compete for a roster spot. The fact that his deal has some guaranteed money means the Thunder front staff must have some belief in him. Wright will soon turn 28 and throughout the years has played 32 games in the NBA. In those 32 games he averaged 3.7 points and 2.0 rebounds a game. According to Hoops Rumors, Wright played in 34 games in an Israeli league last year and there he averaged 12.2 points and 5.1 rebounds.
