Report: Oklahoma City Thunder Sign Free Agent Guard Trey Burke

UPDATE: Trey Burke has reportedly reversed course on a deal with the Oklahoma City Thunder and will remain a free agent, Shams Charania reports.


Oklahoma City has signed free agent guard Trey Burke, according to a report by Shams Charania of The Vertical.

A roster spot was created in the trade that sent Enes Kanter and Doug McDermott to New York City in exchange for superstar scoring wing Carmelo Anthony.

It was presumed that Semaj Christon would fill this newly-created roster hole, but it appears that Sam Presti and the Thunder opted for scoring with Burke.

Four seasons into his career (three with Utah, one with Washington), Burke has averaged 10.2 points, 3.6 assists, and 2 rebounds per game.

Burke, a former 9th overall pick, has disappointed in his tenure in the league, especially considering that he went three spots ahead of Thunder center Steven Adams and six ahead of Milwaukee’s prodigy Giannis Antetokounmpo at 9th overall.

Unless Sam Presti and company decide to cut a player before the season starts, OKC’s roster is locked in.
