More Fallout From 8-Player Deal: Thunder Waive 5-Year Veteran

Of the eight players who switched sides in last week's voluminous trade between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Houston Rockets, it was inevitable that a few would wind up on the waiver wire. Add five-year veteran Sterling Brown to that list.  

This is the 2nd team since the end of last season that's moved on from Brown. He was acquired by the Rockets from the Dallas Mavericks in the Christian Wood trade. He only got into 12.8 minutes a game for the Mavs last season, averaging a career-low 3.3. points and 2.5 rebounds. 

The 27-year-old wing has spent five seasons in the NBA with overall marks of 5.4 points and 3.3 rebounds while shooting 36.4% from long distance. 

He has a fully guaranteed $3.3M contract for this season, so unless he gets claimed on waivers, the Thunder will have to eat that. 

OKC's camp roster is down to 19 now, still four over the limit they'll need to hit before Oct. 17th. And they have 17 on guaranteed contracts, to there will be some others hitting the waiver wire if more trades aren't forthcoming.
