The Oklahoma City Thunder, in the midst of a youth-focused rebuild, could consider trade options for two veterans facing limited playing time—Vasilije Micic and Davis Bertans, as reported by Michael Scotto of HoopsHype.
Bertans, a 31-year-old Latvian forward, has found himself sparingly used in the rotation, making him a potential trade candidate.
Similarly, Micic, a two-time EuroLeague champion and Final Four MVP, has seen a decrease in playing time, losing ground to rookie Cason Wallace in the rotation.
Trade talks surrounding Micic have gained traction, with multiple teams, including the Chicago Bulls, expressing interest in acquiring the point guard.
Micic, 29 years old, transitioned from Europe to the NBA this offseason, averaging 3.4 points and 2.8 assists in just 12.3 minutes per game over eight appearances for the Thunder this season.
Bertans, known for his sharpshooting ability, has faced a similar situation with limited playing time, featuring in only five games this season and averaging 3.4 points in 9.2 minutes per game.
