Raymond Felton re-signing to push OKC past $300M in payroll, tax

Raymond Felton re-signing to push OKC past $300M in payroll, tax

Last season, Felton served as a backup to Russell Westbrook, averaging 6.9 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 5.4 assists in 82 games. He was a consistent contributor and didn't miss a game all season.

PG13's short-term and long-term goals have been changed over the past 12 months by the impact which the Thunder franchise and fan base has had on him since his arrival in Oklahoma last summer. His importance to the roster is indescribable at first glance, judging by a report that paints him as an amiable teammate and "a strong part of the team's good chemistry". He should continue to have success in his role as a competent reserve and a positive locker room presence.

Although Felton's signature is linearly responsible for taking his team into the luxury tax, his paltry $2.4 million is chicken feed compared to the enormous deal Paul George signed to stay on, and Carmelo opting into his $27.9 million salary for 2018-2019. When you add this number to their payroll, you get a total of over $300 million.

Titles then reveal " Sacha graduates... soon", before a logo from Trump's long-defunct Trump University is shown on screen. For example, Borat was about how Americans saw cultural diversity in their country, specifically with immigrants.

That sure is a lot of coin for a slightly above-average roster.

In doing so, he would also potentially be part of a new super team, with LeBron James being confirmed a Laker on Sunday while Kawhi Leonard could still join the 16-time champions as well. He is an important facilitator for them when Westbrook is off the floor. With the agreement to re-sign first Jerami Grant and now Felton, the Thunder will be bringing back two of their better bench options. He's a career 41 percent shooter, including 33 percent from three-point range, as well as almost 79 percent from the free throw line.

"They welcomed me with open arms and I want them to feel that hype that I have toward what I think we can accomplish there".
