1. Oklahoma City Thunder
    The Oklahoma City Thunder announced Monday that they have signed free agent forward Mike Muscala. Per team policy, terms were not disclosed.
    Muscala (6-8, 230) appeared in 55 games (all starts) last season averaging 11.0 points, 6.6 rebounds and 1.0 assist in 27.9 minutes per game. He started at power forward in place of Steven Adams who was sidelined due to injury. In his rookie campaign he averaged 2.2 ppg and 4.4 rpg in 16.1 mpg while shooting.462 from the field and.375 from three-point range.
    He played four years at Boston College where he earned All-Atlantic Coast Conference First Team honors twice and Second Team accolades once. As a senior in 2017-18, he led the Eagles with 13 double-doubles, including 12 straight games between Nov. 26 and Jan. 1. Muscala ranked second on BC’s single-season list with 19 blocks and fourth with 112 total blocked shots. He finished his career with a school record 1,013 rebounds.
    a sophomore in 2016-17, he posted averages of 9.4 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 23.0 minutes per contest. He scored in double figures in 15 of the final 18 contests, including 10 of his final 12 games. He shot.486 from the floor and.389 at the charity stripe.
    In 2015-16, Muscala saw action in 37 games (36 starts), tallying averages of 8.7 points, 5.3 rebounds and 0.7 assists in 25.3 minutes per outing. His eight double-double performances tied for third on the squad, including back-to-back outings versus Syracuse (Nov. 21) and Florida State (Dec. 20). He registered nine games with at least five points and seven boards over the course of the season. Muscala led the team in rebounding average (8.1) and ranks fifth in scoring output.
    Born in Philadelphia, Pa., Muscala attended High Point University before transferring to Boston College. He was selected in the first round (20th overall) of the 2014 NBA Draft by Milwaukee Bucks.
  2. Oklahoma City Thunder
    Per league rules, the Thunder have until Wednesday, July 24 to sign their pick from the 2018 NBA Draft.
    The No. 22 selection falls well outside of expectations for the Thunder, who had hoped to select a player with a higher upside. Instead, they could opt to use the pick on a more experienced guard, either Brandon Ingram or Lonzo Ball, who would provide them with instant help off the bench.
    the Thunder do end up selecting a point guard with the 22nd pick, they could look towards players like De’Aaron Fox, Malik Monk or Kris Dunn.

    With the signing of Mike Muscala, the Thunder now have a full roster for training camp.
    It’s unclear how much time Muscala will spend with the Thunder, but he joins Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and Paul George as the only returning members of the starting lineup from last year.
