The Thunder announced the signing of center Justin Patton today, and it's a three-year deal worth $5.3m, according to league sources. This year has $700k guaranteed, year two is non-guaranteed and year three has a team option. He brings the roster to 14 and actually puts OKC back over the tax by $921k. The Thunder won't be a team that remains in the tax this season, and $921k is a workable number to trim down. Patton is a former first round pick (No. 16 in 2017) and just 22 years old.
